    How was your grip over/under?

    To put the bar down you bend the knees and lean forward. In fact it's hard to describe.

    Did the instructor honestly recommend that for your first ever deadlift you should use 140kilos?

    You must be a natural at deadlifts.

    my grip was over the bar.
    i have very strong legs i probably could of lifted more for 1rp but there is very limited plates in the gym, 140k was all there was. also i have been doing leg presses since i started going to the gym and can press all that the mashene has pluss a 20k disk held on the pin.

    Ditto that it's awesome especially with a double overhand grip.

    Bump for your stats, weight height etc.

    im not 100% sure about strict form but the instructer said i was doing them well struggled on the last few(keeping hold of the bar)
    it might sound like a stuped question but what is ment by stats your size or what you can lift

    if your banging your knees on the way down, it might be that the bar is too close to the floor, are the plates olympic size or just the smaller ones, if they are the smaller ones, try and put a step aerobic under each plate, or something similar to higher the bar.

    my stats are
    Arms 15.5 in
    chest 48 in
    waist 40 in (all fat) lol
    legs 26 in circumference

    I'm 24, weigh approx 17st and 6'1" tall.

    The gym I use is pretty under-equipped, there are no facilities to bench or squat but on the chest press machine, I can do about 70kilos for 8 reps. I've only been training for about 8 weeks so I'm still not sure what I should be doing properly.
    I'm looking for a new gym at the moment cos I need more equipment for what I want to achieve.

    Damn ! You can deadlift 140kg but only chest press 70KG on the machine.... I am 6ft 4in 84kg (ectomorph) and can only deadlift 40kg but chest press 91kg for a strict 4x8.

    Strange...........

    Deadlifting at 6ft 4in is also an art, I find that turning the knees out slightly when coming down combined with leaning forward works well.

    i can probably dead altot more i recon atleast another 30kg for 1rp but theres no more plates in the gym.
    With the bench pressing i broke my shoulder playing rugby 18 monthes ago so my left shoulder cant take that much presure.

    Damn! It took me a year to work up to 140kg!

    Do watch your back though - that's one hell of a weight to start on.

    Also, at your height, you may want to try Sumo style (wide leg stance, arms just inside knees) - it takes out some of the leg drive and may feel more natural.

    i have been working on my back muscles alot before, we have a machine for your glutes and spinal erectors which i have been doing the full stack of weights plus a 10kg disk on the pin. thanx for the advice though i would not like to be out of traing with an injury.
    i will try the Sumo style next week

    Machines do help an awful lot so 91kg on a machine might translate to 70kg on free weights, but- I can't believe you can only deadlift 40kg. Maybe you are suggesting this yourself in the last paragraph but that can only be an anomaly that will be ironed out very quickly when you get the form down.
