Thanks, Swede! I definitely look like I lift now. Now I need to work on looking strong like you!

Thanks, Jim! Excellent advice. I'm going to do some specific things in my next routine to work on my deadlift. And yes, it is lovely here when it's not beastly hot! I think this fall there will be a lot of outdoor lifting here.

Kit, that's great advice! You know, I obsess about my squat, bench and deadlift form, yet I've never even thought about the form I use for OH lifting! I will definitly look into that and try the things you suggest. Thanks!

Thanks,Brute! Good point about max efforts, well except for you of course. Seems like you can max your deadlift anytime anywhere.

Thanks, Ravi, OR, Rob! Things are going along. I really thought I'd get more from my deadlift, but as long as it's rising, that's what's important.

Thanks for the confidence boost there, Kuyt! I'll get those numbers one day. SOmething about deadlifting is eluding me though. I really feel I should be better at it. I'll figure it out.

Cheers, fellas!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
