    I hate polls that don't close. They come back more than Jason or Freddie.

    Any new PR's?

    edit...

    I DL my 300lb set for reps so my max is probably around 450. Which would be awesome except that I'm 300lbs.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I weigh in at 168lbs.

    ATM I deadlift 275lbs x 5 reps. My 1RM is about 300lbs.

    Deadlifts generally piss me off. My legs and back can hande way more than my grip can so I end up dropping the weight way before my legs or back give out.
    Dedicated to legs and the disrespecting thereof.

    It's been a while, but I broke 400 (1 rep) a few months after my first post in this thread. Haven't really done deadlifts at all lately.

    The Captains of Crush are the ****. Im closing the number 2 consistantly so i think im going to order the number 3.If you are lacking in grip this is absolutely the way to go.

    Best way to help your grips for deadlifts is to do power holds. Set up a barbell in the power rack with the pins a few inches below where you would lock it out. With a double overhand grip, pick the sucker up and hold for time. It's a killer.

    You can also do power hangs. Set up a barbell in the power rack as high as it can go, then just hang from it like a pull-up bar. It rolls slightly so it's a lot harder than just hanging from a pull-up bar.

    Farmer's walking, double overhand grips, and other stuff like that is also a good option.

    As for my deadlift, 2.5x+ without straps or a belt. Not sure of the actual max because I haven't tried in a while to be honest. I'll keep ya'll posted.
