Yes.

Post something worthwhile "The" Luke.

...again, out of the country from Tuesday till Saturday, but I'll post a vid when I attempt 405 x 15 (don't think I can manage 500).

Might need some help with the technicals (I'm a technophobe), but with a little help I'm sure I'll manage.


Could I post it in this thread?

Someone comment....cause to me he is either full of shit about the 405x12 or he can deadlift 500 but his parents won't let him take the camera to the gym.


Oh hell, I'll call bullshit on it.    There is no way in hell I'll believe the 405 x 12 without a max somewhere near 500.

sorry for late reply on this. kind of left it to the last minute.

this is the first time i ever did d/lifts from the ground (i do only rack pulls, cleans, etc for sport specific training) and, let me tell you, i completely underestimated the awkward factor. maybe someone can comment on the 1 million and 1 things i did wrong?

juist wanted to get it in there out of respect for the p/lifters here and ummm...because i said i would. Embarrassed

thanks, appreciate the positive but, man, i didn't realise i would be so retarded on this lift. i've been pulling a shit load from shins, knees and thought, yeah, 500, piece of cake and figured i'd just throw something in there last minute because i really don't believe it's necessary to pull from the ground unless you're a p/lifter. i mean, apparently even the westside guys think the movement basically sucks in training, so i figured i would just train as usual and then throw in something when i got around to it.

well, i was wrong, as you can see, this was a bitch for me and now i'm curious as hell as to why. i mean, it just felt awkward as hell and fucking killed me after. mind you, i didn't even warm up. just rushed out and figured i'd save my energy for some reps - boy was i deluded. when i got to the top i thought wtf was that shaky thing so i let the fucker down slow and thanked christ i got out still able to walk.

much repect to everyone else who made it look so...much less retarded. got my ass kicked being an arrogant fuck. well deserved i say. Grin

hahahA look at it this way..

a) you did post a video
b) it will get you something for it
c) you put up instead of just throwing e-lip around here...props
d) maybe it points out some weak points in your training...and want to know what I figured out the other day when it comes to my legs shaking? It means you're not pushing them inot the floor or using them...you're actually relaxing them on the lift. I'll show you in my deadlift video I made the other day and point a few things out that dawned on me.

  My question to him was refering to the 405 x 20 in under a minute that someone claimed.

I made that claim..and am more than willing to back it up!  Grin

I got 405 for 20 in 56 seconds...



and puked for another 5 mins Grin

I'm much taller than Luke and i could pull 405 for 8 reps when my max DL was 515.

Awesome deadlifting guys...congrats!

This will probably be my last post before I head off on holiday (waiting for the taxi), but tonight, tonight at the gym I pulled 500 lbs... only got one slow straining rep but it was a 500 lb deadlift nonetheless.

Soon as I have some time when I get back next week, I'll post a vid of my attempt at 405 x 15 (although 12 is more realistic).

I'm pretty surprised there was only 5 vids posted with as much notice that was given for this.


props to everyone that followed through with what they said they were gonna do.

i know plenty of shorter guys who can get 10 reps or so (touch and go) with a weight, but then only three reps when as little as 20 pounds is added.

by contrast, i'm 6'2" with short arms. if i can get 2, i can get 20 pounds more for a single.

The GetBig.com 500lb Deadlift Challenge, sponsored by AtLargeNutrition.com and Prowriststraps.com, was a success!

We had a total of 5 entries, which around here is a serious accomplishment. Grin

The range was anywhere from 1-11 reps with 500lbs!

Here are the winners and their prizes:

1st - thewickedtruth - $100 At Large Nutrition products and a gift package from APT Wriststraps!!!
2nd - Jason Pegg - $75 At Large Nutrition products and a set of Knee Wraps from APT!!!
3rd - Lift4Size - $50 At Large Nutrition products and a set of wraps from APT!!!
4th - TIE - Geo & Beast - The Bitch Hands Award and a special gift from APT!!!

Very few who entered, didnt submit a video. To them we say "maybe next time, pussies!" Cheesy

Another BIG thanks to our sponsors AtLargeNutrition and APT Wrist Straps! Chris Mason and Alan from APT have been incredibly generous. Thank you guys!

NEXT: 315lb Suitcase deadlift for reps! Grin JK!

what about a heaviest raw rack pull from the knees or something? Grin

that could be interesting from a raw strength perspective as there is primarily movement around one joint and it's probably a very good equalizer from a technical and assistance perspective.

i hate this reps shit. reps are too subjective in my book. i mean, i realize it's an incredible exercise in self torture to do umpteen reps of 315 but then you have issues of how fast you do the eccentric/bounce/rom, etc etc. besides, i'm pretty sure i'd do myself an injury trying to compete seriously with heavy weight for reps. i'm not exactly a technical expert and my attention span is quite short Grin.
