    Welcome to the 2017 S&C deadlift competition.

    I'm going to get right down to business. The competition will officially start on JUNE 5TH and will continue through December 31st. This will be a team-based competition. The winning team will be the the one who can AVERAGE the most improvement in these coming months. Each participant must submit a video or official meet results to establish a starting 1 rep max BEFORE JUNE 5TH. Once all submissions have been entered, teams will be chosen at random. The number of teams is yet to be determined and will be established based on the final number of participants. Uneven teams will be compensated for by dividing the total lbs of improvement by the number of participants on the team.

    No straps, no hitching, no ramping, no dropping the bar. Whatever equipment is used for your starting 1rm (deadlift suit, deadlift bar, etc) MUST be used for your final 1rm.

    Dropping out of the competition can be done penalty-free until August 1st.
    If anyone is available to take your place, then a replacement can made.
    Starting on August 1st, withdrawal from the competition will not remove you from your team's average.
    Whatever improvement you've made up to that point, with video proof, is what will be figured into your team's score.

    I trust that our participants would never do such things, but ANY FLAMING OR DERAILING OF THIS THREAD WILL RESULT IN A BAN FROM THE COMPETITION.

    Not all of these rules are set in stone, so feel free to voice your opinion on anything you don't agree with.

    Here is the current list of participants:

    @NurseKnuckles
    @The_observer86 - 455 lbs

    Thank you.

    Cheers @MatterOverMind and thanks @NurseKnuckles for getting the ball rolling.

    That's a healthy list of participants, I'll get my 1RM posted before June 5th.

    I will use my all time-PR of 180kg/400lb. I have that on video since it was done in another comp on here, does that video count? I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull 180 again in just a few weeks, but starting with a lower max is pretty pointless.

    I'm out with the no straps rule. My bar is practically smooth, haven't gone strapless in months.

    @MatterOverMind , if you're allowing a Deadlift Suit, why not straps as well? I don't intend to use either, but as long as the competitor starts and finishes with the the same equipment, I don't have a problem with others using them.

    I don't view those as being comparable.

    Personally, I don't think straps should be allowed, but it can be open for discussion.

    I've never used a DL suit, but I suspect it would have far more effect on what one can lift than straps. It's a bit like saying, you can use a Slingshot in a Bench competition, but no wrist wraps.

    Like I said, I won't be using either. Only thing I'll be wearing is a Belt, so I have no dog in this fight. I just think it's a shame to lose a competitor because he can't use straps when someone else can compete in gear.

    It's not a deal breaker for me. Just my 2 cents worth.:)

    That's weird, bro. Do I need to add a rule that all genitalia must be blurred out?

    No straps. I thought we were going by IPF type rules. Let's not make this into a joke. Next hitching and ramping will be requested.

    Straps help you keep the bar in your hands when you might have otherwise dropped it and failed the lift. A deadlift suit doesn't.

    Your bench comparison doesn't make sense at all.

    I know it's 2017 and everyone wants to be included, but hell no to straps.

    I would say its more like allowing wrist wraps and not a slingshot, and that makes sense.

    It's obviously not that important, but I just don't see it as a valid comparison.

    Also, wrist wraps are allowed in just about all powerlifting meets, straps aren't allowed in any (SPF doesn't count).

    Consider the no straps rule set in stone.

    Deadshot has been removed from the list.
