Once you know the breakdown you can target how you're eating to specifically address the problem.
You don't have any iron in any of your supplementation do you (obviously in your diet you do, but other than through normal food consumption)?
I'll see my doc in four weeks for another check up. I was taking centrum (which contains 18mg - 100% - iron) like, forever :dead:

He :) I think I could do the 405 with chalk alone... from a rack pull. No way from a DL, from the floor up and then down. I have very girly hands. :gay:

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Style: None currently
I do one whole egg plus however many whites fits my current goals (2-3 whites for cutting, more for a bulk or maintenance). It keeps the taste from being god-awful and one yolk isn't going to hurt you.
Or you could always just put ketchup on them. You'll never know there's no yolk in them.

Ah Wallsie!!! **** it!!! Can't take it anymore!!!!
Right now I'm having two whole eggs and 3/4 cup of egg whites with chopped tomatoes and feta cheese on top of it... and a big piece of turkey ham!!! God bless cheat days!!
I'll follow the ketchup or egg in egg whites advise dude... but not today. A man needs eggs!!!

God bless cheat days indeed. Otherwise, the beer I am about to drink tonight would be sacriligious.

Style: Man-ho Kung Fu
Take everything I say with a grain of salt, as I have never deadlifted over 200 pounds (don't train in it), but my father in law is a powerlifter, and I watch him lift at the nationals.
I think you can lift a stack more than you are, I don't think it is a strength issue but a form issue.
As you start the lift your butt should drop down way lower towards your calves, then push up through your thighs, your legs is where your strength is. Your back and shoulders must be mega strong to lift the weight you are, with the form you have, so with a bit of leg strengthening you will blast through too much higher weights.
Practice with much lower weights, just focusing on your form.
As for straps of course use them on your heavy strength training.
Good luck man, you are lifting heavy already well done.

I just had a look at the world records for single rep deadlifts, I think I read somewhere that you are about 160 pounds, so you could potentially be lifting up to 310kgs or 683 pounds, say you cut weight and lift at 148 pounds then 579.6 pound deadlift.
I think this shows the potential scope for improvement.
I honestly believe if you improve your technique and push through your legs than you will be lifting over 500 pounds within 6 months. Filming was a good idea man.
Maybe it is time to join a powerlifting association with some members who are lifting big weights with good coaches, they will let you know how your form is going in 10 seconds, and they will actually know.
Maybe even find a second hand suit to give you confidence on your heavy lift days, that you are not going to blow out your back.
