Default How I FINALLY broke the 700lb Deadlift Barrier

Quote:
My deadlift has been my curse. Until recently I had pulled 650-675 every meet for 4 years! I tried everything I could think of, no lie. I pulled off the floor, from a deficit, rack pulls and got nowhere. My frustration was beyond describable. How could I squat 1000lbs multiple times in a meet and not pull 700lbs? I just could not find the answer for it.

Great read and thanks for sharing JB. I remember Steve, years ago, preaching the gospel about upper back strength, for many reasons, including deadlifts. I hated BOBR's, but found pendlay Rows, and fell in love with them. After hitting pendlays for awhile, I finally got my 500 milestone deadlift. No coincidence either.

The pendlay's also helped me get rid of a weak point - power off the floor.

For these 2 reasons, I have become the #1 fan of pendlay's. Getting better at pull ups and shrugs didn't hurt either.

I've been doing Pendlay rows recently. I hope I can grab some progress like you've had, Jim!

We both can row a fair amount of weight for reps.
Doing box pulls the last 2.5" off the floor I lose over a 100lbs off my pull. Have video's pulling off box 675, 695 & 705 some sets for reps.
Hips/ Hamstrings??

I've recently switched to Pendlay Rows. Liking them so far. Hopefully, they'll "carry over" to various other things, particularly deadlifts (of course, strength in general will do that, but y'know what I mean.)

And indeed, heavy shrugs and pullups/chins ftw as well.


Good article btw, JB. And congrats!

Hammies are my weak area, at least that is what I was told by a DLer recently.

I pulled off blocks for 10 weeks leading up to my first meet. Hit a 50lb pr and finally got 500 after years of misses
