Platform Deadlifts

Hi guys

Quick question just out of interest:

How much less weight do you find you can shift when you do platform deads rather than regular deads?

I'm doing just platform deads for a few weeks to target the lower part of the lift (thats my weak spot on deads) and I'm just curious how much my platform lifts equate to. The platform I use is 2 and a half inch.

Thanks

Ian

    Approx 8% less than my max at the time, standing on a platform that put my upper laces touching the bar.

    I have the bar a sole level and can do about 80 - 85% from the low position.
