    So I've been deadlifting more these days, didn't realize what weak numbers I'm pulling compared to a lot of you. I pull conventional with mix grip (left hand over, right hand under?) I'm only pulling for 1,2,3 reps... not for volume, besides warm up. Here's my numbers, don't laugh

    335x3 3 sets. No belt, which I need one. Ain't tried for a 1rep max yet. Goal is to pull 405 for 1... for now.

    I'm learning how to drive with the legs and not pull so much where I feel I naturally want to do, make sense?

    I like the trap bar, I can pull more weight with it for some reason.

    Same here. It's more like a squat than a deadlift for me.

    Trap bar is all I'm doing these days because of my back problems. I can rep with it because there is much less set up to pull. I stand on two bumper plates to make up for the handles being higher than the bar. So I'm still at a slight deficit.

    I've been repping 500 for around 5-6 and I've hit a high of 610. I've kinda hit a plateau honestly.

    Thank God for my log. My senility worsens. I was sure I pulled 700 or something

    Actually it was 405.

    But I also did 315 x 7 for 2 sets

    I don't think I ever dead lifted before I started POB 's program

    I really like it!!!

    Great Thread Raiden!!

    Oh and your numbers aren't weak.

    It's to build your body.

    Just get the form right and be safe!
