Elated! I switched to OH/UH grip and got 405 lbs. up twice! I'm so happy with myself!!!! It was an unexpected achievement, so I didn't have anybody with me to videotape. I'll make up for it next week.

Congrats! Big milestone right there. The body won't lift what the hands can't hold. That's why over under helps and why people with straps can usually lift even more.

Good job man. I know that grip probably felt a little awkward at first.

Yeah it did! I felt off balance on the UH side at first.

I think I need to drop weight again and work on form. I need to get some videos for you guys to critique me. Too much rounding.

That's what I'm doing with my cleans. I set what little ego I have/had aside and focused on perfecting the movement.


edit:

I am totally wrecked today!

So... is it normal for everyone else after each rep of deadlift to "almost" pass out (lightheaded, woozy feeling... lasts 5-10 seconds). This was my workout yesterday...

Warmups (no rest between)
6x45
6x115
6x135
6x185
4x225

Rested 3 minutes... then worksets

265x8... 3 mins rest then
225x10... 2 mins rest then
190x12... 3 mins rest then some chins.

On the worksets, I do a rep... breathe out heavy as a lift, then set the bar down, step away from it... and deal with 5-10 seconds of dizziness / feeling like I'm going to pass out. It subsides, I get back in position and do next rep.

I see guys just doing one rep after the other (and I have before too) but that was how I hurt my back, fatigued and dizzy and lost form.

Perfectly normal! That's how you know that you're giving it your all. Resetting your breathing after each rep is the "right" way to do it.

I caught myself holding my breath during lift, so I was trying to exhale completely as I lifted... but I noticed keeping form was harder as my core wasn't as rigid etc.

Double edged sword, I'll keep working on it

I never breathe during the lift either... I found that relaxing the core just enough to breathe was enough to break my form a bit. Deep breath at the start of the lift, hold and execute.

^^^This! I do the same with my squats....only exhaling at the very top of the movement.

If you're stepping away and waiting 5-10 seconds those are more like a bunch or singles. I could my sets as setting the bar down without letting go and regrouping then going back up

A technical deadlift is setting it down and pulling from a dead... If you just touch it almost turns into a RDL.

Thats what it feels like... the part of my brain that goes "you aren't working hard enough" is definitely alert... it feels like I'm getting too much rest... but it seems to be working at least. I mean I step away from bar, collect my thoughts, then go right back at it... and I get really low (ass almost touching floor) for each rep. Back/abs/biceps all sore from it, and my form is great compared to if I wasn't taking a second after each rep.

I wouldn't leave the bar. Rest it down to a complete stop but don't walk away. Non other exercise would that count as reps. Also don't get too low. A common prob is people get their hips much mower than they need to.

It wouldn't be an rdl. An rdl is about the knee bend not how fast you're moving.
