    How the hell do you crazy bast***ds deadlift so much weight?

    I just got 345 x 5 for my first time yesterday, and I don't feel as if I stalled out yet. I can probably continue to add 5 lbs. per week for another few workouts until I'm maybe up to 375 or so. But DAMN, 345 felt pretty damn heavy to me.

    But how the hell do you crazy SOB's manage to deadlift up over 600 lbs. and stuff?? Actually I know how you do it. You train your ass off until you do it, but I'm just saying that 600+ lbs. is insane. 600+ lb. squat.... yup that's also insane.

    My PR's right now are:

    Squat - 255 x 5
    Deadlift - 345 x 5
    Bench - 217 x 5

    I don't know what my 1RM's are though. It definately feels heavy to me now though, lol.

    There's a running theme in most threads - years of training consistently. I've been training consistently for 15+ years. There is no secret and it won't happen overnight. Find some training partners and get to work.

    Ya I know. I've been busting my a** for about a year now. I'm just amazed at how people can squat and deadlift so much weight when my lifts feel so damn heavy now, lol. Much respect to everyone though that does it.

    345 x 5 is no joke for a raw lifter.your 1 RM could be around 405-420.Wait another 5 years.I didnt start really deadlifting seriously until 3 yrs ago.Once I started using the westside template and talking to other powerlifters I learned a ton.Do alot of low back work,hamstrings,db rows,etc.To master a movement,you must dissect it.Rack pulls,pulls off plates too.Your pulling good weight now,so keep at it.

    Do you deadlift? Cause if you don't, then there's absolutely no reason for you to be able to deadlift alot.

    Anyway, for starters, here are my suggestions:

    2. http://westside-barbell.com/articles.htm

    3. http://www.powerpage.net/coanphildead.html

    If you have the courage to do so.... http://www.joeskopec.com/smolov.html

    I'm not sure if the Smolov program can be done to the deadlift but oh well...

    ask 4000 questions for advice on this or that subject, then immediately turn around and give a bunch of advanced training advice on every single thread you see opportunity to do so. You are just like Rock-ten at the P&B. Amazing.

    That's how I feel about bench press. Every single workout. Ever.

    Also deadlifts are a mind game. Just because 345 feels heavy as **** doens't mean you can't do 355...you just need the stealy focus and concentration.

    Genes also play a factor too.

    Not every man that trains can achieve these huge lifts.

    Don't cry about genetics. I can go off for 10 pages on why my genetics suck as a powerlifter. It has nothing to do with genetics. Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights.

    Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy.

    the more you weigh the easier it is to understand why you can lift so much weight.

    When I started my goal was the elusive 405 at 215lbs, now Im 320lbs and can get 700 for a few reps with lifting straps touch and go.


    405 is big weight... for a guy who is 150, 500 is big weight, for a guy who is 200lbs etc. Its obvious to me why big guys lift allot, whats not clear is how small guys lift allot. Like a 600 deadlift at 180 is just hard for me to wrap my mind around.

    quoted for truth, you never know what your genetics are anyway until you gained 100+lbs and trained as smart and hard as possible for many years to begin with. Weight gain, and training will over come some of the most **** genetics you have ever seen.

    I'm not crying about genetics. I'm quite happy with how my lifts are progressing.

    I'm just stating like in all sports some are better suited than others to lifting very heavy weights.
