One Arm Deadlifts

I was reading Dinosaur Training today, so I decided to give these a go at the end of my routine.

Wow, they're tough. I only worked up to 80kg. Problem wasn't grip, but stopping the bar tipping forward or backward. Any tips guys?

    also try having two bar one handed dl's in a way of having the bars on both sides of you and lift it like you would lift a trap bad dl.

    Wrist strength seem to play an important role as well.

    No, it was a normal 7' long, 1" diameter bar. Like I said, the problem wasn't grip, but balancing the bar.

    Quick tip - measuring tape and coloured tape to mark the spot.

    Here's a completely unrelated peice I wrote this am for a Grip Course. Tell me what you think - this is from the section on the Mind Set:

    Application of effort / the mind
    Some time ago, within the pages of Muscle Mob, I wrote a piece on the mind set needed to become a champion. I included the example of Jim Wylie and his bleeding thumb nail. Jim, it will have been seen, prior to rule changes, was and may still be Vertical bar daddy with his hooked grip 243 kilo effort. I wrote how he, every single time he went over 200 kilos, would cause himself injury. Not so that any weight couldn’t be lifted but so that the lifting hands thumb nail would blacken with the pressure of the hook grip and the power required to pull 243 kilos pressing down on it. In one competition small droplets of blood were left on the chalky bars surface. When asked about it he said that it would take a week too 10 days after the event for the pain to subside.

    So impressed and, it has to be said, a little shocked was I that in the article I spoke of how he would KNOW that it was going to cause an injury but still do it in order to win.

    Indeed the bank where Jim worked had him attend a course and each participant had to talk about their hobby and he was so successful at expressing how much he would do to win that they ended up getting him to talk to his banks high flyers to motivate them.

    Now each and every one of you will have preset limitations. Be they ones like mine where the idea of making myself bleed to win seems a little over the top of where, like David Horne on the big one hand lifts (Dinnie etc) he is likely to aggravate an old back injury (one which will almost certainly require him to take painkillers prior to the event) may seem too much you have to overcome this.

    ‘Why should I Steve?’ Well you firstly need to get yourself outside of the comfort zone. With many exercise classes in the big name chain gyms being so low-impact you may as well stay at home. When martial art classes and boxing become non-contact for fear of client litigation and, so it seems, even cups of coffee having ‘beware – contains hot contents (well d’uh!)’ we have become way to molly-coddled.

    The best way to do well and push yourself is to compete. To win you have to be pushing yourself harder than the other Joes. The ones who stay comfortable will not win. You have to be willing to break sweat, loose a little skin, maybe – just maybe – bleed a little. The belt will bite when tight, the chalk will dirty your clothes and you might feel a twinge as you go for the max. Grit your teeth and bare it! It’s not like your pushing out a baby ya feeble minded fools.

    You need to be able to switch on the primal side. The one that wants to scream instead of mutter, the one that – just for one second – thinks of taking a pop at the driver that cuts you up. Use that primal rage in the gym and on the lifting platform. Save it for the big, big lifts – the trophy lifts.

    To add on to your pointi don't know if any of you watch international rugby union but during the england vs. italy game jason robinson the fullback had the entire nail of his index finger ripped of. But he didn't go off he had it straped and played the last 30 mins like that. That is the sort ofattitude all athelete should be looking for.
