Re: 272.5kg Jefferson Deadlift
Bit of an unusual looking exercise. Any benefit/difference to normal deadlifts? It looks a bit awkward on the grip too me.
Decent weight and looked like you were warming up!
Its a very old Strongman lift, just messing around before my strength peak starts, wanted to see what I could lift with it, 300kg seems likely but probably won't get chance to test it. Grip is easy mate, just a standard mixed grip and feels like normal. It feels more like a leg/press/squat as the bar is directly under you so no leverage as such like a normal dead. Feel it a lot in quads and glutes. Good laugh for a change but won't be a staple in my routine!
