Awesome going!

Top of the TSR leaderboard if you put it on!
Thanks

It felt pretty tough but watching it back it looks surprisingly easy. Looks like there is quite a bit more off the floor, will be interesting to see how much a belt helps, especially with locking it out which is my weakest point.

Planning to diet down in the new year and hopefully increase my deadlift at the same time. Aim is a 12 week cut, going from 106kg to 95kg ideally. I think/hope I can get to a 300kg deadlift by then too, would be awesome to have a 300kg deadlift at 95kg.

Trained fasted. Hadn't eaten since about 10PM Sunday night. Was about 36 hours in at the start of the workout, was pleasantly surprised at my strength considering. 255kg deadlift was awesome considering I pulled heavy/maxed on Saturday and I was training fasted too. 100kg OHP PB came out of nowhere. Previous best was 85kg a few weeks ago.



Camera placement wasn't the best, tricky to film myself. Dat leg shake.

Nah, I lift at a leisure centre where 99% of members use the pool, sauna etc and never use weights.

We have about ten strong guys, not including me because I'm not strong, including Owen Hubbard and some other decent level powerlifters.

We just had a good gym management guy that bought power bars and some nice plates.
He went to my school

Will be interesting to see what happens to my lifts when I'm not just snacking on crumbs. :awesome:

Cool, he was Beastly a few years ago right?

I've heard reports his excellent coach had put 20kg on his deadlift in three years.

Think he got into PLing when he was 16.

I remember training in the gym thinking I was king doing sets of 180 on DL. Then, this little lad walked in and tbh didn't look like he trained through T-shirt. Then he started deadlifting 220 for big sets. Tears in my eyes :-(

Deadlift
60kg X 5, 3
100kg X 1
140kg X 1
160kg X 1
*belt on*
180kg X 1
195kg X 1
210kg X 1
225kg X 1
240kg X 1
255kg X F
255kg X 1 [beltless]
*belt back on, wore higher*
180kg X 1
200kg X 1
220kg X 1
240kg X 1
255kg X 1
270kg X F (incredibly optimistic attempt, especially considering I was 2+ hours in and had missed 255 already. Broke it about an inch or two off the floor with zero speed and it just stopped.) Strength is there, just a case of getting used to the belt)

Bench press -
60kg X 5
80kg X 1
100kg X 1
110kg X 1
120kg X 8 (PB)

First time deadlifting in a proper belt, incredibly uncomfortable and threw me off a lot. Lost all my speed off the floor and just couldn't get set up like I wanted at the bottom. Wearing it higher helped a little, but still going to take a while to get used to. Found myself hardly being able to take a breath at the bottom, let alone a deep one, which means I can't use my usual setup. Didn't help that I was incredibly gassy from glucose drinks. Going to have to break it in a lot more and play around with setup. May be a case of having to take a deep breath while standing up then going straight down and gripping and ripping, instead of my usual setup. The upside is my lockout feels hella-stronger, which was my weak point, so if I can fix the setup/bottom position and get my floor speed back, my DL should go up a lot.

Having done a bit of reading and actually thinking about it, it seems as though I've been deadlifting "wrong" all this time, by trying to breathe after setting up, thus not getting a full breath in. Plus I haven't really been doing the valsalva manoeuvre, more just holding my breath and pushing my belly out. Hopefully I can actually learn to lift, then my belt may help and not actually make me weaker. :doh:

Loss from what?

Working at like 80-85% of 1RM for sets/reps. Running Sheiko #29 while I diet down a little, running it as written, as in Sheiko we trust.

lolol fair enough. I swear your maximum is like 190-200, so 150 seems to be light in comparison. And nice... sheiko aint no joke.

That's a 1rm though and five doubles is obviously more taxing. They felt pretty easy to be fair, especially considering I'm on reduced calories, don't want to start messing around with the program though. Planning to run a TBC sequence of Sheiko for 12 weeks after this 4 week stint doing #29 while dieting. Expecting gains.
