Thanks, KD! I use a double over. My fingers are too short to use the hook grip and the mixed grip hurts my shoulders/elbows. I believe this is because of my extra girth around the midsection.

I listened to btb about pulling movements and grip strength. Back controls your grip strength! I've yet to have an issue with grip even though I do all my work with versa grips ! Keep smashing it!
Thanks, Hunter! I had read where BTB said that. That is why I started concentrating on rows vs pulldowns. I am hoping my grip will come up to speed. Since I added in the rows and power shrugs my forearms have been getting sore, so I hope that is a good sign.

I am so used to doing 5x5 work sets on three exercises that this pure strength training feels like I am undertraining. Being able to use heavier weights does help the confidence level, though.
Great Job TDawg.
I just moved away from the 5x5 myself. It's fine for getting your strength up, but it's tough to maintain for too long.

Stay strong!

Thanks, Booch! I ran a 5x5 for 7 months. I really enjoyed it, but this lower volume stuff is a nice change.

Here are two videos for comparison. One is from three weeks ago when I maxed out on all my lifts. It is 350 x 1. The other is from today's workout (after 2 de-load weeks and during week two of JByrd's peak routine) and is 365 x 2. I believe the difference is noticeable. I didn't realize I movee the 365 as fast as I did until I watched the video myself. It felt a lot heavier than it looked in the video, lol. Any critique of my form is welcomed. I need mucho work.

350 x 1


365 x 2

Well you improved, so good job, but there's lots of room to do even better. Hopefully btb can look at this and tell you some really good info! I'm NOT a good deadlifter, but some things I noticed. Grip that bar with a death grip! It looks like at the top the only reason you've got the bar is the straps. The way you double/triple heave the weight up will probably get called for hitching at a meet. Which I believe you're doing in the future.
You have improved, so please don't get discouraged! I'm sure you know that every session is a chance to do better at something you'll never get perfect! Hope some better dead lifters than me will chime in and help you out!

Overall your form wasn't too mad. Just make sure when you are ready to take your time and get set up properly before you pull. Sink your hips, stick your chest out, take a deep breath, then pull.

To lock out drive your hips forward.

The ease with which you yanked those weights off the ground leads me to think that you might be able to pull even more when you smoothen your technique a bit! Definitely not your strength holding you back there, those weights where moving like they were warmup sets. Very nice!

Thanks, Hunter! I am far from discouraged. I will be doing a competition in March. That's what I'm preparing for now. And, yes, my grip is nearly non-existent right now. I was barely able to hold the weight even with the straps. My girly grip is probably going to be my biggest obstacle.

Thanks, BTB! I've got about three months for "refinements" before my first meet. I know I was in a hurry on these. I wasn't real sure I could pick it up, so I just gritted my teeth and pulled. I really should have paid more attention to my form.

Thanks, KP! I'm hoping to make some progress on my dl before my meet. It is a little harder for me to grasp than bench and squat.
