Exactly. I think of attacking the bar with the same power I would when trying to clean it.

Before I practiced any Olympic lifts I assumed my deadlifting was fine. Olympic lifts changed my approach. They are about power off the floor. I applied this to deadlifting and it helped.

Hmm... you're probably around Pike Co. I'm in Boyd Co. and in school in Rowan Co. I don't think it's a problem to give my general locations on here.

A speed deadlift is usually referred to as a deadlift 50-60% of your 1RM being pulled as fast as possible.

I forgot to mention that thinking in terms of cleaning the deadlift also helps me with hip drive and lockout. When the bar is 6 inches off the ground I think "clean it".

I'm in Letcher Co.

Do you do any hunting up that way? I may come up for a PL meet in Morehead this spring.

Very, very bad idea. You wont be able to do this mentally. Wayyy to hard on the system.

Try this: Do your normal full deads then drop to 60% of working weight and do 8 sets of 3 off a 1 inch deficit. Standing on a plate works very well. Do these reps as explosively as you can while maintaining form. I used to be very weak off the floor, did this for 4 months, now my weakness is at the lockout.

Also a video of you deadlifting would be very helpful, as I am guessing that you pop your hips too early when deadlifting.

monday Likely 80% for 8x3
wednesday 50-60% for 8x2 focused on speed from the floor
friday ~90% for 7x1

looking for 465-505 by end of semester.

excellent thread. this applies to all three lifts i think. once proper technique has been well established, trust your technique and lift powerfully. heavy weights won't hurt you, improper technique with heavy weights probably will.

That is a ridiculous amount of volume. That looks more like a three week rotation rolled into one week. I would strongly advise against this.

Whether your weak of the floor or not I always recommend pulls against bands. They teach you to be fast. Read Tannhauser's comments again.

back to what the thread is about..everyone has been giving great advice. But another thing that I've found that helped me alot was more technical especially when weight gets heavier. I believe guys who can deadlift alot not only are very strong but have the technique down.

I've learned that when I deadlift, not every set is the same technique wise. When the weight is lighter I'm not focusing too much on technique because like i said it's light. But as you work up to heavier weight, it's really important you have your technique in check.

Main points I check while going heavy are:
1. Tension in Hamstrings and Glutes
2. Lats pulldown and tight
3. Core tight
4. Head neutral
5. chest up

The biggest point I make sure to have is tension in my hamstrings and glutes.
