Check this out mate and see what you think...



I filmed this video a few months back, there's an hours worth of deadlifting that's been cut down to a little over 11mins. I talk you through how I work through sets, how to structure your warmups sets in terms of reps and then we get into the bigger weights. I finished up on pulling 440lb (a little over 3 x bw) off a couple of 20kg plates :)

Next time you deadlift, imagine trying to push/drive your feet down into the floor. Once the bar is off the floor you'll be surprised at how much extra power this gives you.



Thanks for the amazing tips i am trying to soak in every word of it and maybe i should put up a small note on the leg drive thing so i always keep it in mind , i will try a slightly lower hip position in my next workout and will try and get the video for the same as well hopefully that will give me a better picture of what suits me better . Once again thanks for checking it out and you really rocked the 200kg Dead ! That is a huge no for anyone .
No mate i did not miss your feedback i started cheking out that monster video of you DeadLifting 200kgs :thumbright: :thumbright:

Haha, well I was pulling from a couple of plates. Still gotta work up being able to pull that weight from the floor, I have a meet in 1.5wks time so I reckon have about a 190kg in me right now, maybe 192.5kg if I'm really having a good day.

Looking forward to seeing your next video, keep up with the training.

Damn i have to miss my Stronglifts workout it seems this week , the hotel i am staying till weekend has only Dumbells and machines . no barbells so instead of trying to use dumbells for squats and deadlifts i'd rather do a small cardio session with a mix circuit workout kinda thing running through all the machines just to keep the body worked up , any suggestions ?

You could still squat with dumbbells mate, it may feel strange though since you've been using smith, why not try some dumbbell shoulder presses or bench :)

Dumbbell deadlifts are great as well.

Try one leg squats in your hotel, start against the wall before you try doing them standing though haha.

Okay so did a light workout some cross trainer , over 50 Push ups and just to give in a cheat workout i'd say i did some biceps curls and triceps extensions but with a very light weight . Will get back to my Stronglift workout on Monday where its a 50 kg Deads Day ( without barbell ) and have to try and recover from the stalled overhead press from last workout .
Enjoy your sunday everyone :)

27/11/12
WEEK 6
WORKOUT #14 B

SQUATS
1x5x Empty Barbell . 1x5x20kgs , 1x5x30kgs
5x5x42.5 kgs

OVERHEAD PRESS
5X5x20 kgs

DEADLIFT
1X5X20 , 1X5X30
1X5X50 kgs


I was having some trouble with the Overhead Press specially for the last 2 reps so for my 4th and 5th set i asked for a spot and i could complete my 5 reps easily .The Spotter just gave the initial push from the bottom position and i completed the rep from there . So now just a quick question or an opinion i'd say is it okay to lift with a light Support in OHP for a last set or two increasing weight every workout or simply repeat the same weight till i can get through all the weights comfortably myself ??

Here's the Deadlift video from today's workout , Total 67kgs ( 50kgs Plates + 17kgs Barbell ) , the entire set was going smooth until some jackass came right in front of me to pick up some plates i really wanted to give him left and right over there but decided to let go , you can see him in the end of the vid . Feedbacks feebacks now !

Good form mate, getting heavy now eh? :p how come you don't count the weight of the bar? Oh and that guy that walks in front of you is a bloody idiot, had similar problems with people in my gym before.
As for the shoulder press, I would say a light spot was fine, I use dumbbells for this and its quite difficult to get into lifting position when they're heavy so a spotter is essential.
Take care bud
