I cleared a 190 lb. front squat for 5 reps today, and I still had more in me. Feels good to be nearing that 225 lb. mark.

I did the 275x5 with decent form. Slight round in upper back. Then I push presses and tweaked a muscle in my back. Kind of annoyed it happened.

Do you guys come to a complete stop when deadlifting?

After about 315 or so, my limiting factor is grip so after about two reps I need to readjust my grip due to sweat or it just slipping out. I use a regular overhand grip due to some bicep issues I've had in the past. If I could pull the weight smoothly without stopping, I think I'd get 5 reps without a problem....probably going to try some straps.

m3inline, it seems we have some similarities with this lift. I too started deadlifting just a few months ago, just use a overhand grip and moving similar weight at the moment.

Brief pause, yes. But I'd think you're okay as long as you're not bouncing the weight off the ground.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

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

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I re-set my grip a lot as I don't use straps or chalk so I slip a lot from sweating and stuff. Just don't be that guy and bounce it off the floor!

I don't bounce, either touch the ground or barely above the ground on some reps. A fluid movement in general helps me get more reps. Maybe if I had been deadlifting longer and didn't have to think about my form, then stopping/resetting wouldn't bother me as much.

Yes! When using heavier weight, I'll perform a rep, set it down, deep breath, grip hard/flex lats/take up the slack, squat, and then do it again (..rinse and repeat). My grip is unaffected by fatigue thus far, but I do have to wipe my hands due to sweat. I'm going for 350 lbs. on Thursday, so I'm excited about it. I really love the double-overhand grip. I feel confident and strong using it.

i find it easier to do a light tap and pull back up right away.

and get straps. it will help your situation

Lower but at the highest point. If that makes sense. Almost middle of the back. It hurts a lot when I move my head down

Sounds like a pulled/strained trap.

the circled part i where I feel the "pulling" and pain when I put my chin to my chest. To be honest, I usually feel a little discomfort in this area when I put my chin to my chest but I guess something just aggravated it even more.

Just put my chin to my chest, and experienced the exact same pain. Looks like we have the same injury lol
