i hit 365 DL
got 375 past my knees but my left hand grip failed before i could try to power through it and lock out

don't think i can get 4 plates by thanksgiving which was my goal
but i'm making good progress toward it
especially considering that my DL max was only 275 back in May or so

My Ride: Too many to list
FINALLY broke past my plateau of 415lbs. Hit 425lbs on the first try last week. Been having trouble getting past with getting sick, being to busy to get to the gym (with two jobs some days, and 45 min drives each way makes for like 16 hours of work/driving)

Basic training really put a damper on my DL numbers. Currently I'm back to 305 x 1. I could probably muster up 315 but I don't want to hurt myself. I'm just barely 3 weeks back into lifting after not touching a weight for 2 months.

It will come back quick, I took pretty much all of August and September off and my numbers are now better than they were before I took time off.

For a good pull, the weight should not be on the "mid foot" like described above. You should be driving through your heels

I think you misunderstood the point of that description... Yes, you should be driving through your heels in order to have an good pull. However, the weight should still be evenly distributed and balanced across the mid-foot in order to have the bar travel through the most efficient vertical path. Just like you don't want shift the weight forward causing the heels to come up off the floor, you don't want the weight to be shifted too far back causing the balls /toes of your feet to come up either. Doing so would just cause an imbalance.

i disagree. You should have your weight back far enough that your heels are the point in which the most power comes in contact with the ground when starting the lift. This prevents your ass from coming up first, this also loads your hamstrings and glutes before the initial pull from the ground. To each their own, but that is the way i prefer to deadlift and how i teach all my clients/powerlifters

You're still misunderstanding that point I tried to make. I completely agree with everything you said in both of your last 2 posts... For both force production and posterior chain activation. I was simply referring to bar setup / position in relation to one's feet. A person's heels, balls and toes should never come up off the ground.

Re: Dead lift inquiry!

Those that are using the over-under grip, are you noticing any long term asymmetries in your shoulders and/or arms? Should the grip hands be alternated every now and then?

It may be my imagination, but after deadlifting for more than a year now, I think that my left shoulder is wider than the right ("over" grip on left hand) . And my left bicep is noticeably smaller.

Not at all, although I use over/over until I get upwards of 315 lbs. For the heavy stuff I always use over/under.

It has nothing to do with deadlifting. A plus from dating doctors you get to learn all of this cool stuff. The left side in humans tend to be bigger (pecs, traps, etc...) due to organ placement (heart, etc...). In smokers the right lungs gets damaged way more than the left because of the way the lungs are wired.

Actually, humans are not symmetrical at all. Left eye is slightly larger than the right one. Left testicle is larger than the right one, etc... there is a reason behind all of this.

I alternate my DL over/under grip on lighter weights, keep the same grip on heavier weights with dominant hand under the BB.

Oh stop with the "dating doctor" stuff already. It really is old and tiresome, and nobody considers you credible. Stop trying so hard.

As for bigger appendages, that's totally dependent on what your dominant side is. All of my right side appendages are bigger (..but I'm fairly symmetrical; my right leg is only a half pound heavier.....right arm is only a tenth of a pound heavier, so insignificant), while I have more flexibility on my left side (..because I'm a right side kicker). Making definitive "left side" statements only serve to make you look like a fool. I'm sure that everybody here could post, and there would be variances regarding which side is larger (..from arms, to legs to feet...).

Re: Dead lift inquiry!

Zoo, that theory doesn't correlate well with the fact that I have a smaller bicep on my left side. I am right dominant.

M3inline6, the fact that you're using over/over up to 315 might be helping you with the symmetry. I never use over/over, seems like I should.
