    Nice lil pump sesh.

    Shoulders are feeling better than ever. Wider range of motion & less impingement since doing light (eg 10-15kg bar) behind the neck presses nearly every session.

    Is your zercher lift a zercher dl from the floor, ie crook of elbows and up to fully locked out?

    200 kg for a single is pretty impressive. BW at present?

    Best I ever got was 160kg for 3, although that was about a decade ago and when I had't actually done any deadlifting before (sweaty like rapist and uni gym not allowing chalk).

    Hey mate, that attempt @ 200kg was a fail, but I have hit 190. What I'm doing is deadlifting the weight, placing it on my thighs, then getting the bar in the crooks of my elbows & standing up. I don't have the mobility to get my arms under the bar from the floor. Is that what you were doing? Like Pavel? It's super impressive imo, wish I could do it. I haven't tried in ages though, might have to give it another crack. BW is 83kg atm

    Yeah that's what I was doing.

    It took some effort but ended up getting the flexibility in the end. There was a lot of rolling the bar down the forearms and getting it to the crook. I'm looking to start it again to assist overall strength and when I do I'll take a video.

    I think I was 85 or so when I was doing it. I'm not as of this morning 205lbs so somewhat heavier.

    edit- Have you had many people tell you it's bad for your back?
    I sis at the beginning, then when I got to reps at 140 for some reason people stopped. I think it was partly because I asked them what their dl was, what other training they were doing, thanked them for their concerned, then told them they were too weak/unfit/annoying to give me advice.

    Deadlift (conventional)
    60x8
    100x5
    120x3, 140x3, 160x3
    170x2, 180x2, 190x2, 200x2, 205x2
    220xF - surprised I missed this because I crushed all those doubles. Probably not enough rest between sets.

    Yeah nice, I'd like to see it. I've had a few people come up & chat but it's always been out of curiosity and something like "I can't believe you can do that without hurting your back" rather than "you're doing it wrong & will hurt your back". Even if they are actually thinking the latter. I think you're right though- when you start repping out zerchers that are heavier than most people in commercial gyms can deadlift others have the sense to mind their own business.

    Sorry, I've just read my post before and realise I was either tired, or using my phone (auto predict). Some of my post was gibberish.

    I didn't have it happen too often. I have a 'fuck off' look on my face in the gym at the best of times.
    I'll be intrigued what I can back up to, as my DL isn't too bad these days. Trying to increase my work capacity at the moment, so will get to 5's (3 sets) at 200kg before going back to increasing upper end of the lift.
    I'm now also 'training' for a marathon and other bits in the interim, so may have some negative impact to what numbers I consistently put up.

    I'll be following your progress if you decide to log it. :cool: Although I'm not running marathons I am trying to maintain some semblance of a gas tank.

    That was a long time coming. More volume did the trick (1 light day 7-10 sets, one medium day 5-8 sets, one heavy day 3-7 sets) Looking back it's obvious-- squatting/deadlifting 3-4 times a week (combined) vs only benching once, maybe twice. Of course the former both went up nicely while my bench stayed the same. Duh.
