How long did it take you to raw deadlift 200 kg since you started?

For at least 1 rep, and from when you very first started deadlifting? Raw

inb4 Andy Bolton pulling 260kg first session
i pulled 120 my first time at 64 kg.

I can pull 175 'legally' [no hitching] and started training in June.

By November next year I hope to pull 500 lbs though dis dun be tuff.

Powerlifter pulled 2 tonnes when he gave it go, no?

Blimey, if I wanted to pick up something that heavy I'd hire a JCB!.. less chance of putting me back out like :tongue:


you can hire the beast of the gym for £20 an hour?

Pulled 200kg in 3-5 months of starting deadlifting heavy for the first time. I'm a natural deadlifter

About 6 months....saying that I'm about 2 years into starting doing them and I'm at the same point thanks to injuries. I think though that everything will just come together by the new year and I will start improving really quick.
I'm 10KG off since starting DL properly in late Feb 2011.

I've just not been doing it as regularly as I needed to the past 2 months though so just hanging around 185/190.
First time deadlifting did 100 for 3 awful form. 2 months later had got a bit stronger (basic gains) and managed 130 for 3 and 140 for 1, I sorted out my form and decided to start deadlifting once a week. In 6 months I went from 140 for 1 for 200 for 1 with belt and chalk sumo style, 180 for 5, 140 for 15. My conventional at the same time went from 130 for 1 to 190 for 1 without me training it at all, just doing singles now and then. I did heavy deadlifts on a friday and stiff legged deadlifts on a tuesday. I also did a lot of rows and deep squats which all contributed heavily.
