for the first time for me, I seriously deadlifted today. My first set I did 225x10 and I felt good. Then I upped it to 275 and did it three times. THen did 275 again 4 times. Both of those were grip limited (forgot straps). After every rep I had to put the bar down and re-grip Anyways, then I tried maxing out at 315 and I got it about half way up, but then realized I was going to drop it as my grip was failing, so I just put it down.

My question is, is my grip just really weak, or do most people have these problems? I know I had 315 in me if I could have held the bar.

Also, now I have some appreciation of those of you deadlifting >500lbs
