3x Bodyweight Deadlift
 
A 660 pound deadlift at a 220 pound bodyweight is my next goal. If I get close I am going to compete just to bring this sucker home.

I am becoming obsessed about deadlifts.

Competition and a decent belt would get you a good 15-20kg's I reckon.

My best gym deadlift is 190kg's. Best meet DL is 215kg's and there was a little bit to spare there as well.

DO IT!!!!!!!!

I have been so obsessed with deadlifts that I have been thinking about giving them a heavy focus for the rest of 2011, and maybe just competing so I can deadlift.

My bench sucks right now, and my squats are squats. But my deadlift keeps going up.

I might start looking at non-raw feds so I can use a belt. I don't care what type of fed it is. It's time to get 700 while I can.

I think all RAW fed's allow you to use a belt and wrist wraps (not straps). Lots of the US ones allow you to use full on knee wraps as well it seems. None of the UK ones do.

I had actually forgotten that the raw feds allowed belts.

Yesterday's PR was my first 2x bodyweight deadlift. In fact, it was well beyond 2x bodyweight, thanks to Paleo :)

Son Light Power has DL only comps.

I'm easing up on deads for this 6 wk period to concentrate on squats. But, I bet I'll be back. I'm after 2.75 before I start thinking 3x.
