Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

I GOT 2ND PLACE! 100% Raw Federation, Zion Crossroads VA, June 8th, I totaled 1040lbs and took second place out of, I think it was 11 guys total in the 181 class! The only thing I don't understand....on my third attempt I went for 485lb deadlift, only ten pounds more than I have pulled in the gym, y...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

New best as of last night. Took the advice, and after the end of my standard workout that I would otherwise do on wednesday I did three deadlift singles with 315lb, 405lb, and 475lb, setting a PR for this year :) so I guess the training works quite well since I've lifted nothing heavier than 295lb i...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

I don't think there's any ratio. These still are two quite different movements. I wouldn't guess anything. I haven't been on meets yet, but I'll say what the expert's say. I would hit my opener Deadlift two or three weeks before the meet. Build up to your opening single. Louie Simmons has said that...

What do you mean, what is the best deadlift prior to starting no deadlift training?

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

What is the approximate ratio that ones power clean has to ones deadlift? I know, yes it's different for different people, but in general is it around 50% of ones deadlift, or should it be closer to 60% or 70% of deadlift? I just don't want to over estimate my deadlift for the meet coming up in 3 we...

Re: Results of "No Deadlift" Powerlifting Training

that's fine with me, maybe it's easier to follow all in one long thread for future reference

Results of "No Deadlift" Powerlifting Training

Hey guys, figured I'd start a separate thread for this topic so it would be easier to track. Nothing too extraordinary to tell about, but power cleans hit my upper back and traps like nothing I've ever done before, which I imagine is a great thing. Squats are sooooo much more enjoyable, I don't feel...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

Also, recently I made a good effort to increase good morning strength and got no carryover to my squat. However, my technique needed/needs some work so I may not of tapped into the carryover from good mornings yet (or they just don't benefit me, time will tell). Are you aware there are at least thr...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

same lifts benefit everybody. Some people are built for squatting, others for deadlifting, but we all benefit from the same lifts. You are overthinking. I'm scared now that all this time I've been ignoring my adaptive responses and recovery propensities. Not all lifts benefit all people equally, an...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

Some people can just squat, and make great gains, so adding other exercises won't make them gain any faster or any more. They can still use the alternatives as a form of periodization if they so desired, but generally, assistance exercises are for improving stubborn lifts. If the lift is growing by ...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

Well, for instance, if your disadvantaged in the squat then goodmornings, glute-ham-raises, and sumo deadlifts can be great at building up the squat. I found glute-ham-raises to be awesome, and I credit them with the one time i was able to squat 405lb. I then moved across the country and my current ...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

It seams to vary from individual to individual...i mean if training the deadlift didn't work, powerlifters wouldn't do it, so it clearly works for a lot of people. Again i think it comes to body mechanics. There was a reason that all the Russian powerlifters all looked like different sized versions ...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

because there's nothing you can do to change it so it's not worth considering. Come again? Understanding your unique leverages is key to maximizing your performance in a lift. Ignoring it because you can't change it is as foolish as ignoring your adaptive response and recovery propensities...unless...

Re: Question about no deadlift training for the deadlift

hoosegow, your body mechanics must also be taken into consideration. It's something that is critical to a lift, but I hear so few people talk about it. When I first tried my hand at deadlifting, having done nothing but bodyweight exercise and weighing some where in the neighborhood of 155lb i was ab...
