    The Race to a Six-Plate Deadlift

    This will take well over a year - perhaps years - but this log will show what dedication and hard work can do. This will be just like any other log, but will only be about deadlifts.

    Welcome to our journey.

    The rules:
    -If you deadlift, you post.
    -If you think about deadlifting, you post.
    -If you are planning an awesome PR, you bring a camera.
    -If you fail a deadlift, you post.
    -If you win, you don't really win. Keep posting.
    -We will try to arrange for insane mod reps for winners.
    -Monetary prizes can be discussed at a later point in time.
    -For your six-plate deadlift, you may only use a belt, gloves and chalk. NO STRAPS.
    -Sumo deadlifts allowed.
    -Since this contest includes people with varying deadlift strength, we will judge a winner in the "most progress" category, the "strongest" category, and the "relatively strongest" category (using the Wilk's Coefficient: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilks_Coefficient).

    This image will be updated progressively:


    Starting PR's (5/30/10):
    _Jordo: 225
    The4thMan: 230x3
    -Lucifer: 300
    matt297: 308
    Basely: 375x2
    Ironlife: 420
    acm807: 425
    Musicality: 425
    400Lb Gorilla: 405x3
    Scurn: 440
    Jrahe: 450
    Blizzard589: 465
    Wick: 440x5
    Justin-27: 500

    Thinking about deadlifts:

    I pulled 425 on April 25, and I'm not sure it's gone up at all in the past month. Next Tuesday, I am going to give it my all again and see if I can pull 450 (a 6% increase).

    This thing was 110% effort:

    Uh oh there's real money on this? Sounds like fun. Count me in. My last max was 465 lbs (hopefully I didn't lose that yet... it's been a month).

    I'll probably deadlift very soon... I'll take a vid.

    im glad to see im in on this competition without ever giving my own consent lmao

    a few things:
    1) sumos allowed?
    2) Equipment wise- I suggest belt and chalk only no straps but its up to what everyone agrees upon.
    3) Side competition for Trap Bar dead lift? it is a dead lift after all. Weight suggestions for the race with a TB dead? 7 plates?

    whoever is in on this discuss these 3 matters por favor.

    3) I say we keep it to straight bars.

    That will shoot up in no time. Look at the graph for my deadlifts on my bodyspace:

    Apr 28, 2010 425.0 lb (193.2 kg) 20.0 lb (9.1 kg) 4.9 %
    Mar 4, 2010 405.0 lb (184.1 kg) 13.0 lb (5.9 kg) 3.3 %
    Dec 19, 2009 392.0 lb (178.2 kg) 7.0 lb (3.2 kg) 1.8 %
    Nov 29, 2009 385.0 lb (175.0 kg) 10.0 lb (4.5 kg) 2.7 %
    Oct 19, 2009 375.0 lb (170.5 kg) 20.0 lb (9.1 kg) 5.6 %
    Sep 20, 2009 355.0 lb (161.4 kg) 45.0 lb (20.5 kg) 14.5 %
    Aug 20, 2009 310.0 lb (140.9 kg) 0.0 lb (0.0 kg) 0.0 %
    Aug 5, 2009 310.0 lb (140.9 kg) 0.0 lb (0.0 kg) 0.0 %
    Jul 31, 2009 310.0 lb (140.9 kg) 80.0 lb (36.4 kg) 34.8 %
    Jul 10, 2009 230.0 lb (104.5 kg)

    To put it another way, my 1RM in August of '09 is my 12RM right now.

    I should have re-worded my statement lol, I'll have to check if LA fitness allows chalk, but somehow I doubt it.

    I'm signing up at an LA fitness when I get to Florida. The chalk sock is nice because it doesn't get all over the place. Just buy it and bring it and no one will comment.

    Fair enough. Not a huge fan of gloves, but I guess it's just as fair as chalk.

    I'm telling you, the thing is awesome. It doesn't leave any chalk on the ground, and at worst you get a cloud of chalk particles that require you told your breath.

    Yess, thanks for the support.

    My 500 was raw mans raw. No belt, no gloves, no straps, double overhand hook grip, not even any chalk. First time I locked it out and the bar literally fell to the floor. Regrouped, and hit it 5 min later.

    Gonna need some major grip work to hold six hundo though...that's for certain.

    Damn man way to go!


    As far as the rules, I agree so far, but the Sumo should compete against other sumo. The vast majority of big pullers use conventional around here (or so it seems).

    I think chalk, belt and gloves (if you're a weenie) are fine.
