Nice work Chris!

I assume your legs are chalked in that vid? Or are they naturally that pasty white? :p

Not chalk. The chalk would cause the bar to catch a bit. I'd imagine it's something like baby powder.

Nice pull btw Chris.

good job

lots of back (I used to dead like that but the back soreness was unbearable afterwards), but good job none the less

Thanks everyone.

My legs are pasty white, but I had baby powder on them too. ;)

emjlr3- It's a deadlift. I use my back. My back is very strong. If I tried to squat up my conventional deadlift it would look horrendous. Back soreness is a part of life....back injuries are what you have to avoid.

wow! nice set chris.

Crazy deads chris, anything more than 3 for me is death.

06-14-2007, 12:23 PM
haha i loved the headshake and the release of the bar at the end.. you dominated that thing

06-14-2007, 04:23 PM
your technique is very good. good set. I bet if you paused like 2-3 seconds between reps, you could manage 455x6.

Good lifting!

06-14-2007, 08:17 PM
What's the weight at right now?

06-14-2007, 08:19 PM
You pull sumo normally/in competition, yeah?

A 435 x 6 conventional is awesome - I've got a feeling that your gonna destroy your 530lb PR next time you compete.

06-14-2007, 09:14 PM
dude, that's sick! Pulling that for a single is on my long-term goal list right now lol

06-14-2007, 09:20 PM
**** dude, I just saw this. Goddamn that was some sick pulling. I'm gonna make a an attempt at conventional again.

Thanks everyone.

My bodyweight has been consistently between 166-167 when I train at night(like 6:00 P.M.). So I should be good in the morning to fill out the 165's. This will be the heaviest I have ever weighed in for a meet.

I do pull sumo in meets. My sumo is stronger than my conventional, so I'm hoping this recent increase in convetional will carry over to my sumo. My lockout has always been my weakpoint with both styles, but it has really come up in the past few months. Tomorrow I am going to pull sumo in my suit and hopefully make 500 look real easy so I can open with that.
