    Deadlift Weight?

    Ive just started dead lifting (fairly new to lifting generally) and I want to know what weights I should be looking at?
    Trouble for me is I'm not 100% confident with form, so i dont know whats too heavy/ too light.
    Im 170 pounds, I bench 160 and squat 200 pounds. Im just looking for a really rough idea about where I should be starting out?

    Thanks

    Start at your squat weight and go up from there as you get more confident with your form.

    Start with 95 pounds. and go from there.


    A good goal would be 225, then 315, then 405......after that your goals will be smaller increments as progress gets a bit harder.

    Start Very Light do 1 set of your target rep range, keep doing more sets while adding 10~20 pounds. Make sure you are practicing the perfect form every set. Once the bar speed slows down call it workout and start progressing from there.
