    Good plan. Get an inzer 13mm belt. Rock solid.

    It'd be a waste of time at his level, moving 50+ kg DBs would be a waste of effort and time

    Not sure tbh. DBs in the gym go up to 53kg, could press them I reckon, although it's a complete pain in the ass getting them into position, far more effort than it's worth. Used dumbbells just over a week ago and did:

    Paused bench press -
    115kg X 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
    120kg X 1
    125kg X 1
    130kg X 1
    135kg X 1

    Incline DB press -
    25kg X 10
    30kg X 10
    35kg X 10

    The dumbbells in my gym weigh more than the listed weight. They're plate dumbbells so the listed weight is simply the plates, doesn't include the bar, collars and welding. The 35kgs are actually about 37kg or so.

    We have DBs up to 75kg in my current gym. Not sure any of them over 50kg have actually been used.

    I've used all of the DBs in my gym up to 60kg for db rows. Think that's all of the DBs other than the loadable handle.

    Have you been coming off an injury or something? Like I'm just looking at your blog and it seems like within a few weeks your deadlift is just shooting up despite not really doing much volume/frequency and somehow you might actually get 280kg with a belt this xmas :K:

    Had a little bit of back trouble a few months ago so didn't really deadlift much. Started actually focusing on it lately so making good progress.

    Doesn't seem that you are actually focusing on it to me which is why I'm so jealous/impressed/bewildered lol. Seems like 1x/week frequency on average working up to a heavy single, usually with a back off set at a pretty low intensity and sometimes a triple at roughly the same RPE as the top set.

    Wish I could do that
