Thread: Whaddya Deadlift?

Are you sure it's 3000lbs?
It would depend on how high he lifted it, but initially you'd have to lift nearly all of the weight.

Here's a link to one Camaro
I don't think you'd have to lift the whole 3000 to get one end off the ground. I would assume getting all four tyres in the air would be a 3000lbs deadlift, whereas one end would be less.
I'm thinking it's something to do with the equation
T (torque) = F (force) * R (axis of rotation)
and you'd have to know the width of the Camaro and where its center of gravity lay compared to where you were applying the force.
but really I'm reaching here.
Sorry for the thread hijack.

Yeah, but at first you'd be lifting all of the weight. As you get higher up, you're lifting less of it, but that's still a shitload.

The car deadlifts you see on TV sometimes are about 700 pounds in the hands and not the whole deal. It woul probably be maybe 600-800 pounds that way.

I put the question to my dad, who's a civil engineer. Here's his reply:
If the car was sitting level he had to lift half the weight, 1,680 lbs
If the car was sitting on a cross-slant he has to lift half the weight times cos theta where theta is the angle of the slant.
This will be slightly less than half. For instance
Slant Degrees Percentage Lift Lbs
0 100.0 1,680
5 99.6 1,674
10 98.5 1,654
15 96.6 1,623
20 94.0 1,579
25 90.6 1,523
30 86.6 1,455
35 81.9 1,376
40 76.6 1,287
45 70.7 1,188
So even at a big angle it's quite a lift. Though he wouldn't really have to lift it, just shift it enough for someone to get out.

Have you tried using a mixed grip? If not do an overhand grip till you feel like you can't do anymore, then on your next rep use one hand under and one hand over.
Like Phrost, I can also reccomend the captain of crush grippers. I got one a while ago and was impressed, but the rest of my grippers are made by heavygrips as I got a good deal on a full set. I really like using a chin-up bar for grip work too: chin then take one hand off and switch your grip then repeat, grip a towel draped over the bar, wrap the towel around the bar to make it thicker, etc.

i pull a lot of concentric only deads
i pulled 355lbs at a bodyweight of 148lbs. But DL is definitely my main squeeze. I can only squat about 265lbs. I won't even say what my bench is...

About 160-170 pounds if it's just beer. You can add stuff like sand though to make it heavier.

I carried one down some stairs saturday. That was pretty hard. Does that count as a deadlift?
