    Congrats, Bro!

    I used to think you'd be one of those morons
    who only did arms, and just for the ladies!

    I'm glad to see the rest of you coming along well!

    Train Hard!

    Congrats on more weight than I ever plan to move even with a wheelbarrow. Is your form right? That looks like a ton of back. I'm not taunting I really don't know.

    Depends on the person. Once the knees get fully extended you have to pull with the back as you drive your hips forward. The "back" pull can be delayed by squatting into the deadlift if one wishes to (I do that when I lift "sumo").

    Also, some people lift better with an outward curve on the thoracic vertebraes. Emevas, do you feel that curve was good for you?

    Well, it was a ME movement, so form won't be picture perfect, but truthfully I felt a lot more tension on my hamstrings during the movement than my lower back. My lowerback is probably my strong point because I've never worn a belt while training and do a ton of low back accessory work.

    Regarding assistance gear: No compression shorts, just regular old boxer briefs. I'm too cheap to buy the stuff and too lazy to figure out how to use it.

    You just lifted 4 1/2 of me. Color me impressed. Outta curiousity, do you have a typical work out regimen posted somewhere I missed? Also it's hard to tell from the footage, how big a boy are ya'?

    I'm 5'9 and was 214 on the scale before the pull.

    I post my workout in the training log forums, but you can't access them without being a supporting memeber. I follow a Westside Barbell Powerlifting Template

    http://www.elitefts.com/documents/template.htm

    I've been making great gains on that for the past few months. Prior to that, I followed Pavel's 3-5 principle to create a decent strength foundation and 20 rep squats to put on some size.

    Plus usually you'd need someone to help you in and out of compression shorts or a lift shirt (and God forbids, a whole suit.)

    Well, my wife is always there for me to take off my shirt when my arms are too tired, so I'm sure she'd be there for me if I needed her, haha.
