As they say, gorillas deadlift, t-rex's bench! I'm a t-rex. But my deadlift is finally improving. I think its come from strengthening my overhead press and as such my traps too, from doing power cleans and snatches so my leg and trap power is far higher now, and from laying off squats and legs for a while to allow me to focus and recover.
yeah i am a t-rex with long torso and short arms (add to this I have high inserting lats which dont stabilise the lowerback as much) - so all in all my favourite lift I am mechanically screwed for

but then again maybe all this is just excuses  Grin

Another great effort by Mon. How tall are you mon?

Personally I think people who are a little taller are always going to look a bit uglier form wise when it comes to this lift.

Alex have you tried doing trap bar deadlifts? If developing trap strength in that lower position is a factor I think its a great alternative to build up.

No I havent used the trap bar in a while, ill have to give that a cycle! cheers

Right, as opposed to the squatting which I think will take me longer to progress to/succeed at, I'm hopefully going to be able to get a score up here in the next few months. Started on weds, currently topping out at 100kg x 6. Aim to add 5kg/week to that, so in about 2 or 3 months ought to have 140kg for at least a few reps!!  Grin

I'm doing stiff leg to get my hams to boost - presumably regular ones are easier?

I know its a tough target but think its doable

once your above 25 reps its more mental than anything else anyway

eric cressey supposedly done 69 reps with 140kg not using straps so 50 with straps should be a breeze Roll Eyes

Well, the best deadlifters on this forum all topped out at between 30 and 35 reps, so I think it will take something special to get up to 50.

What strategy shall you use to add reps?

initially just getting my deadlift top end up so i am repping with 220kg+. eric cressy is a 600lb deadlifter so 315 is nearly fifty percent of max, 315lbs for me is closer to 60-70% of max, so getting my top end up more will help

then will probably do 3x20 cutting the rest periods down between sets until its minimal - then just sucking it up and go for it

in that set I kind of gave up at 30 reps as that was the target I had in my mind - I was doing it in tens and counting down each time, once i was getting close to thirty I slowed down and started to struggle but I think that was alot of self fulfilling - if I had targeted forty i probably would have gone past thirty

for me higher rep work is unenjoyable but I do tend to do better at it (as long as its a single effort - repeated effort muscular endurance I suck at but again think is more mindset)

I found that doing 180 for max reps built up my 140s nicely. They kind of complemented each other as the 140s build the stamina/endurance and the 180s build the strength base.

Agree on the "un-enjoyable" comment!
