Thick Bar Deadlifts

What is a reasonable lift on a 2 inch thick bar? How about on thicker bars?

(and dont give me any % of bodyweight crap, I want a real number! )


A strongman contest coming up has a thick bar deadlift for reps with 180kg - how many reps do you recon will be a good score?

    That is pretty good I recon.

    Did you keep your grip on the bar the whole time?

    I recon it will take a pretty good deadlifter with a strong grip to get double figures.

    On the occasions that i used a 2" bar i did 5 reps at 180kg but only as a warm-up so i do not know what i could do as regards max number of reps. I wouldn't think it would be any less than i could do witht the standard olympic bar. now if i used double overhand grip then i could probably not even pick it up!
    The most i did on the 2" was 230kg
