Just something about the Chucks that hurt my feet.

I have a few different shoes that I'll wear lifting - Vibrams and Romaleos primarily.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

damn good job!! bet it felt like lightweight! u use chalk? Ive been fortunate on having good grip (used straps for like a month then threw em out) but i decided to use some chalk doing some heavy triples and wow. It felt like my hands became part of the barbell, no slip whatsoever.

I've had good luck just using an inverse grip, no chalk or straps yet. Im thinking i've got another 30-50 pounds before my grip starts to fail.

What would you guys recommend for a noob's first week with deadlifts? I've done them in the past and form is alright, just haven't done a lot of them.

3 or 4 sets of high reps low weight to get teh proper form down and not fk anything up?

Start with 135 and try to get 10. Should be no problem at all. You'd probably have no issues with 185 for work sets and try to add 15lbs a week after that. It will go up quickly don't worry.

I'd probably do about 2-3 sets of lightweight. this will get the form down. and Then do 10 sets of 3 reps or something with some good heavy weight. This is will help you learn good form with heavy weight. Your form usually fails when you lift heavy weight. When your form falters focus on where you are failing or putting too much strain.

Are you failing at the halfway point? Can you not get it off the floor? Lockout? This will tell you your weakpoints and what you should ultimately work on.

High reps you'll focus too much on getting all the reps, low reps you can do a few focus really hard then rest and re-evaluate.

If you decide to do higher reps there isnt really a need to do more than 12 reps (even 12 is high)

Pretty sure he means one palm facing toward, one away. Over/under grip, goofy grip, etc.

Roger that. I watched these videos a lot and try to focus on shin distance to bar and stance. I'm 6'2" and I'm still learning the best way to set up.

And what's your guys opinion on the deadlift platform? Not touching the weight to the ground, could make things awkward with heavy weight

if you want to get some more range of motion do it but be forewarned, the extended range of motion increases risk of injury IMO. It definitely has its place in a program if you need help off the floor. Another (better IMO) way would be to use bands and do like 10 sets by 3 using some light weight (55% of your max). This is going to help with your explosiveness off the floor as well as your lockout.
