BIG DEADLIFT! What do you think?

Im loving my SLDL at the mo, they are the one exercise that seems to progress consistantly for me, last week i mannaged 230kg for 8 reps. I am not a power lifter or anything like, i deadlift with the aim of putting size on my lagging biceps ha ha. Any way I was wondering how my lift compares to competative lifts at my weight of just over 16 stone. I havent yet gone for my 1rp max any suggestions what i should aim for?

    Depends what your height is. Eg. There is a big difference between 16 stones at 7" tall and 16 stones at 5" tall. Obviously the latter should be stronger.

    this is a strong lift for a SLDL mate. especially for 8 reps are you just doing stiffs or regular as well

    Ok I am 6.2" tall. Regarding form i do bend my knees a little but not excessively and only to help maintain good form, i dont do any other form of deadlift and only do leg press and hack squats for my leg workouut (often without the latter) but i find that those exercises do the job better than when i used to live by free squats! I use a soulder width grip, hands pronate and i am using straps for the weight mentioned but dont always.

    230kgs for 8 reps on the SLDL is good going. You'd make a 300kg plus deadlift easily I'd guess.

    That's a quality dead for your weight - well done. If you feel like having a go powerlifting get in touch with BAWLA and they'll give you details of clubs and meets in your area. BTW there is no leg press for powerlifters!!

    Regards,

    Tarw.

    without a squat or a regular dead i would love to see a picture of you doing this weight for a single, let alone 8 reps.

    At 6'2 and 16 stone, no squat, no dead and only a leg press, you have a either a freaky genetic make up, or a good imagination.

    Sorry what i ment to say was YOU ARE ON! so long as you send a pick of you eating your own words back![:(!]
    I train to improve the amount fo weight i can lift in each exercise and have found that for me dropping the free squat has allowed more recovery time for my deadlift and that the leg press gives my quads a better workout and the combination has helped with size and strength. so long as the major muscle groups are getting hit heavy an im improving then i dont see a problem with it.

    I'm glad somebody else said that coz to be honest thats exactly what I thought when I first read this thread. I didn't have the confidence to say anything as i'm just getting used to the silly amount of weight that a lot of guys on this board can shift.
    QUARANTINE - Prove us wrong and personally I'll be chuffed to bits. More power to ya. But thats a very heavy SLDL.

    That's me on the spot [:P]

    I do know QUARANTINE, and I can verify his lift. I'm sure he wont mind me saying his form isn't txt book (as I'm sure he'd admit), kind of a cross between DL and SLDL IMHO. The reps are touch and go reps not 7 singles as such - just to make that clear - this may make a difference to peoples interpretation of the lift. I know a weight I can get 5 touch and go reps out on would be impossible for 5 straight singles.

    Still, that's impressive. Do you use straps and a belt or are these deads done raw (cuz raw would be more than impressive).

    It would be more impressive if it was a proper SLDL, as personally I can Deadlift a hell of a lot more than i can SLDL.
    Never the less, well done!!
