Best conventional deadlift was 152.5kg's for 3 with HORRENDOUS back rounding, hitching, the lot. In the meet I completed in December I pulled an easy 200kg's. It came up so fast I think I could have gone 210-220!

Moral of the story: Try both but school yourself on the differences first.

Thanks ltl ill educate myself on both ways
