Sounds like I need to get lifting. Might get 2 or 3 as I sit now.

btw, the people who wanted 365 put up a better argument as to WHY it should be 365 instead of 315, hence the reason that is the weight. good luck!
i still say 315. 365 is a good weight but it rules out a large number of this board. I doubt many people will get more than 15 reps in this challenge so why not just keep it at 3 plates per side and let people go crazy. look at the 225 for reps. stump got 50 reps. sure that weight seems really easy, but it included alot more people and it was alot more interesting. besides, more people voted for 315 than 365.
i'm not bitching or complaining, more just giving suggestions so there is more interest.
April first eh?
I'm going to take a shot at this. I know I wont win, but it is great motivation for me.
I tried deadlifts for the first time in six months last friday and I got 315lbs for 3reps on my last set.... Hopefully I should be able to attempt 325 this week. My goal for the april fools deadline is 10 reps of 365.
^ good luck with your goal, that would be impressive.
i think i could get it 3 times, who knows i have till april
sounds good, ill try this soon and tape it.
2000 or bust
I might get it twice.
Forever Goal: Strength
Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
i would love to see some of the bigger deadlifters here, like chris mason and belial...
stump boy's got that endurance though, i think he could crunch out around 20 reps.
then after that go kill a bunny and start growling

What are the rules in terms of pausing or resetting grip between reps?
i had a few questions:
1) is a weight lifting belt allowed?
2) does sumo stance qualify for this?
3) i have here a clip from sept 2006 of me sumo deadlifting... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG-cGf6qQ0o
is that bouncing? can you please elaborate more on that

i think some people might get screwed because there grip will give out before there back and legs, i dont know its just my opinion ill do it either way
2000 or bust
I don't think Stumpy will get to 20. He has the grip of a little girl hahahaha.
Fuck, fight, or hold the light.
Anyway, even if you can't get 365 even, I'm sure you could get close. You have smaller plates don't you. Just tweak it. I don't know what sizes you got, but an example would be eight 20Kilo plates (four on each side) comes out to 352lbs. Add six 1Kilo plates (three per side) and you'd be up to 365lbs.
But I don't know what plate sizes you have there.... so I dunno if you have 20 and 1 kilo plates

chub - 405 double overhand is not a weak grip, thats much better than most people, you are wrong
fuzzy - that comes out just short but maybe make it right with some locks, only fair to make it exactly 365
Vicious - i have no idea what your talking about..think my avatar may need changing though
And are we comparing bodyweights?
