>>35507885
That's pretty weak desu. Starting your DL around 2pl8 (maybe a bit under if you were totally unathletic before you began lifting) is not a case of /fit/ trolling, it's the truth.

Starting low is fine to get your form down, and that is part of the goal in SL. Since you are adding 10lbs every DL workout, it doesn't matter much that you started low, but you likely did not need to start that low.
>>
>>35507534
I'm eighteen and I started at 120kg
>>
>>35507885
>5x5
yeah you're not going to make any progress doing that

novice programs have you doing 1 set of 5 reps

you should actually read the sticky.
>>
>>35507895
3pl8 DL for 1 rep isn't that big. Also, volume with decent weight is what will make you "look like you lift," not hitting a single for strength.

E.g. you could bench 2pl8 for five sets, and get stronger and little bigger, or bench >1.5pl8 for five sets of 8 and get bigger and a little stronger.
>>
>Be me

>250 bench, 425 squat, 495 DL

>look skinnyfat

Ok.
>>
>>35507942
Sorry, I meant doing 5 reps out of that weight.

It's still shitty tho (I wanna get that 4 pl8). Does the "3x8" thing actually work for beginners like me, or do I have to wait until I hit the 1/2/3/4 before changing to it?
>>
>>35507956
Oh, gotcha. 3pl8 x 5 is pretty solid. My 1 RM is a touch over 4pl8, so you may not want to take advice from me, as my strength levels are not much higher.

You are putting up enough weight for volume to help you pack on size, definitely. 1/2/3/4 is just recommended because it is an easy benchmark to remember.

Adding volume may also help you up your lifts (increased size means more capacity for strength, and doing an exercise more makes you better [form and efficiency]).

I went from SL to Boring But Big 5/3/1. You follow a 5/3/1 template for strength, and do 5 sets of at 50-70% of your 1RM. The added volume helped my lifts immensely, especially press and bench (SL is obviously leg heavy, BBB is comparatively way more balanced).

Hitting DL 5x10, squatting 5x10, pressing 5x10, etc. definitely helped my lifts immensely, and I packed on ~15lbs over the past 3 months.

If size is your goal, you need to add a volume component to your routine. If strength is your goal, you may or may not want the volume depending on your specific goals. I wanted to continue to increase my main lifts while adding mass, so BBB was simpler for me coming off of something basic like SL. You may find that PPL type routines or some random bro split fits your needs better.

>>
>>35507956
>>35508047

So bottom line is if you are not satisfied with your size, go ahead and add volume, no need to wait.

One thing I will say about high volume DL sets: if you are at a gym without bumpers, pulling with smaller plates can be taxing depending on your body (angle might be awkward).

I came home from college during my 5x10 at 70% of 1RM month, and pulling 255lbs that many times with small plates felt awkward. My back was stiff like never before. Just something to watch if you choose to do DLs for volume. It is a taxing lift. I don't know how much it was worth doing 5x10 DLs.

Ignore the e-staters. Nobody starts DLing 4 pl8 a month out the gate. Nobody gives a shit about their 3 pl8 cat back diddlys. Just keep at it and you'll be moving daddy weights in time.
>>
>>35507913
>Starting your DL around 2pl8 is not a case of /fit/ trolling
Yeah, nah. Maybe, if you're physical worker. For an adult, untrained male 1pl8 without exploding their back is normal. Though you can pretty quickly up it to 3pl8s. A matter of few months.

Your trolling right? Back when my bro got a barbell set I was 14(18 going on 19 now) and I just loaded 225 (all the weights he had at that point) on the bar and ripped it off the ground fairly easily... had never been athletic before. BW was around 140lbs, kinda chubby.

How the fuck do I improve my DL?

Been lifting kind of casually for 3 years (big breaks due to work ect)

BP: 100kg
Squat: 100kg
DL: 110kg

I feel like I should be able to DL more but I completely max out at 110. Any suggestions on how to improve my DL? I want to be DLing 150.

I brought my stonehead roomate to the gym, he is like a gremlins with 0 muscle and he did 5x5 at 220 with a flat back the first time ever he touched a barbell. He has never done any sport his whole life and weight less than 150lbs

Another guy from my rugby team pulled 405 the first time ever he deadlifted but he weights 300 lbs so not a big deal

Doesn't matter where I look, everyone lifts more than me. Only just hit 2.5pl8 DL the other week (2.5 months), my squat is atrocious, and I compare myself to others too often to not think I'm inferior to even someone picking up a barbell for the first time.

OP, you will always face people bringing you down, we all start somewhere. But don't brag about someone mirin your 100 kg deadlift. It's just that he doesn't know shit about working out.

I started at 100kg, 5x5 and pulled 230 last month. But I don't feel like bragging about it anyway, there are a lot of people out there stronger than me
>>
>>35507534
I started at 80kg when I was 16

If your roommate was that skinny and untrained he wouldn't have been able to grip the barbell at the least- don't bullshit.

>>35510852
If you were kinda chubby at 140lbs, dl 225 first time as a teenager and think that I'll believe you, you're probably kinda stupid too. Unless you were catbacking like a mofo and grinded that shit. Then maybe. Still doubtful though.

I worked in a Gravel pit shoveling rocks for 12 hours a day for 4 months straight. I managed 3 pl8 diddly after 1 month in the gym.


Fast forward 4 Years, I'm an office worker and go back to the gym. I can pull 180 for reps or 225 for 1rm.


Depends on ur fitness
>>
I can do 140kg for 5 reps on deadlift, 3 months in, I still look small, might a technique thing op, just keep going up higher
>>
>>35507534
i know you won't believe me
but i am a NYRfag, and my first time establishing a 1-rep max on deadlift, i pulled 230 pounds (This was 3 days ago)

did that for 8 sets.

if i understand my progression correctly, tomorrow i should be able to do 240lb?

i would have to say you are not impressive, as you are on par with me, and i am DYEL
>>
Not really making it, but I managed to touch my toes for the first time today. Always used to be like 5 inches off but today I suddenly into flexibility.
>>
>>35512761
flexibility training is legit

practice your flexibility 3x a day every day, and i guarantee you that you will touching the ground with flat palms, and locked knees within 2 weeks.

you will probably also be able to touch your forehead to your knees with locked knees in about a week or two.

doing the splits is hard, though...
>>
>>35512761
Congrats, aim for knuckles then palms bro, once you can get palms on the ground with ankles touching, your pretty flexible
>>
>>35512781
knuckles then fist then palm
work on touching the toes, then the ground just in front of the toes.

don't be afraid to bounce, just make sure you do so gently.

ostrich walks are GOAT once you have a little bit more flexibility.


fucking awesome way to start the morning, by warming up your back and getting all limber and flexible.

back bends, toe touches, pic related, pancake stretch, and splits-training FTW

also, once you can touch your head to your knees, work on putting your head in between your legs, and also work on bringing your head higher up on the thigh... sounds homo as fuck, but you really feel the stretch in your spine.

laying on your back and kicking your feet over your head works well too - especially once you can touch the ground with your toes (keeping locked knees)
>>
>>35512730
You're either fat or your form is God awful and you're gonna snap some shit up
>>
>>35512730
Why are you wanting to establish your 1rm as a rank novice? Why would you start with 230 right off the bat, you're gonna stall pretty hard it always happens with guys that make far too big of starts or jumps.

Personal trainer here:
That's not even your bodyweight, most men can do a 1rm of their body weight 1 week in (after learning form in the first week), you either misread the guy's face or he was being positive about your commitment to training.
You might be training wrong, get someone to check your form for stupid shit like:
>poor foot positioning
>bar not being over your toes
>arching of the lower back
>looking at yourself in the mirror/ahead instead of maintaining a neutral spine
>not pulling in your core
>knees pointing in or flaring out (connected to foot positioning)
>shitty rep timing/dropping the bar at the top of the movement

That said, your dedication to training is good, just aim for weight you can do 5 reps of (use a 1rm calculator) and try and beat 6 reps, when you hit 8 you can increase the weight to something you can manage 5 reps of.
4 minutes rest between sets (you are aiming to build strength)
Try and put the weight down counting to 4 to ensure you are putting your muscles under tension

Keep up the enthusiasm OP!

it sums up to that, really no easy way, if you can find any youtube video of martial arts stretches it's good.

How do you look bad with those stats? Just cut. I bet you'll look sick once you get rid of some body fat.

Not him, but I went from ICF to TM for a while, but now I'm on 5/3/1.

TM is shit for upperbody from my experience, and it doesn't have enough deadlift volume once you get pretty high up. It made my squat shoot up like 70 lbs in the 3 months I was on it though.

I can't speak for madcow, but TM is another rippetoe program designed to make you even more of a Trex.

Trex mode isn't all bad. I just added a 5th day on my 5/3/1 routine where I do a ton of bench and OHP. I'm slowly getting out of trex mode. In 2-3 months I should have a 1.5x bodyweight bench.
