welcome to /dlg/
5'5" 20m 138lbs. In before "manlet kys" and the like.
Here are my lifts, all 3x5:
285lbs squat, 190lbs bench, 120lbs ohp
so WHY cant i do more than 3x 300lbs dead lift!!??
L M B OOOOO
git gud ass master
pic related its you
What happened to me?
2 weeks ago I pulled 140kg for 5 reps, which was a 5kg jump from my previous 5 rep max the week before.
I had 2 deadlift sessions the week after that and failed to break 130kg off the floor on the first session after and then only got 130kg for a single the session after that.
So I took a week off and now I can't even break 130kg of the floor again and my 5 rep max is now about 120kg.
What the fuck happened?
I'm eat 4000 calories a day on average
I sleep 8 hours on average
I eat 1000 calories of oats before lifting to carb up
I wasn't even fatigued when doing these deadlifts, I did them after overhead press or overhead press and light front squats as I'm practising and not going heavy yet.
The only thing that may of constituted to it in heinsight is my squat.
I dropped squatting 3 weeks ago and lost anywhere from 40kg to 20kg off my squat and ice forgotten how to do low bar completely.
Maybe the strength from my legs to break the floor off the ground is gone?
But that doesn't make sense because people like George seegar have shitty baby squats and big boy deadlifts???
you either had a sesh in wich your form and execution (pushing with legs, pullign wiht back etc) was really good, or you are having sessions now where youre just frustrated and not paying attention to form and execution
Just a shit session most likely. Everyone has them. Deadlifts are a big mind game too, one little thing in your head and it fuck up a session easily. Just gotta get your head back in to it.
Happened to me a few weeks back, hit a PR, moved fast so added 5kg and could hardly budge it. Took a week off and maxxed again and got +10kg on the previous PR.
Tl;dr, A lot of it can be put down to mindset on the day.
fellow manlet here at 5'7 150lbs
Got these numbers in under a year
Only got 2 rep 365 deadlift, but my excuse is I've been cutting for the past couple months so my numbers apart from squat and bench havent really gone up. Fellow manlet gym partner has similar stats but a weaker squat and bench and OHP, that fucker deadlifts about 405 on a good day.
The thing is though his grip is stupid strong and he tends to cheat as well with some really ugly form to get those numbers he does. So my recommendation would be work on your grip strength as well as deficit dead lifts, Deficits really helped me get over my plateau. Squatting has a great carry over so keep doing that OP.
Apart from that I'd also recommend doing less volume with more emphasis on 3x5 with extremely heavy numbers, thats something that really helped my bench as well
Damn anon I'm flattered! I always hope someone gets some kinda good feeling and motivation even if its
>"if this fucking manlet can lift this much than I should too!"
after I tell them how much I can lift
Dont let your height be an issue man, hard work perseveres.
Deadlifting is all raw strength, CNS, mentality and grip strength.
I deadlift 5 plates at 178, my favourite lift desu. Barbell rowing is a must accessory, and heavy duty squats will also increase your deadlift.
The deadlift squat. It's actually really simple to setup for too. You just rack the barbell in the squat rack, walk up to it like you're going to squat, then take it off, load it with weight then do deadlifts.
Doing more deadlift (variations) will help immensly more than any type of squat.
>I don't want to DL on pull day because i'm trying to use that day to target biceps and lats/traps
So do deadlifts and then do lats/traps/biceps lifts? I don't see the problem tbch
1 rep maxes
295 lb bench
385 lb deadlift
315 lb squat
195 lb overhead press (THE PRESS)
5'11 345 lbs landwhale mode :(, some guy I know from hs recognized me at the gym and said something like "those resolutions eh?" And I saw him benching 115 lbs for reps
end me now
