Well work at it.   Start rotating in every week with some deads....and freakin pull that thing like you are lifting a car off a loved one.  (I come up with wacky visuals at times).   I dont think it will be too long before you are doing it.   It all starts with the first step.... Just do it man.

You can squat better than BW, the BW deadlift is there if you train for it (though straps may be necessary).

My new submission ....in a new category ;)   2.5xBW for reps ;)


My back is rested up and I was looking to do some deads tonight.   To be honest....the last set of 2xBW KILLED me BADLY!.     I think it is actually less strain to not do so many reps....and not nearly as painful.  I also feel the risk of injury is less.   When you get that fatigued....it is just too easy to break form.

So tonight I went for 2.5xBW for reps.   The bar shows 495...but it is actually 500.  4 of my 45's are on the heavy side.  (2 are 1lb heavy and 2 are 1.5 lbs heavy).

I think I have started to fix my form issue a little as well.

Here is 500x7.   Was hoping for 8 but did not want to push the last rep too hard.   Was not confident I had it in me....and I tend to err on the conservative side at heavier weights.

Be careful....music is a little loud....sorry.
