Evis said:Still pretty far away from 340 but at least back to where I was before injury last year with this 300kg double. How many dead stop reps do you guys do with 300? Im assuming at least 5-6 reps for 340kg.

3 reps at 300kg with a 1 or 2 spare got me a 330kg pull.

Next deadlift cycle aiming for 300x5/6 should get me that 340kg!

John said:Sorry to hijack this thread with a question but thought it might be he best place, I was thinking would useing a deadlift suit help with my unequipt deadlift, to clarify Im thinking as variation for a couple of weeks and probably having it half up like no straps,would I have to use a diffrent technique would that hinder thing maybe anyway would like to hear your thoughts please Happy

Just try it and see. It might make your normal deadlift weaker or it could improve it. All depends where you are weak.

Wearing a suit will/could make the pull easier so in theory you could overload the movement...but if you've never worn one before it can take weeks to gets used too and some have to change the way they pull. Personally if you don't plan on wearing one for competitive reasons then don't.

I get the best carry over from beltless, paused and block pulls.

Thanks mate!

Here's a final bit of overload training before I attempt 340 in a few weeks.

Strong stuff, how often should one do block/rack pulls or would you do a few weeks then switch to of the floor or deficits? Question for everyone,did them exclusively for a around 5-6 weeks but felt sluggish off the floor.

I'd say its a very individual thing. For me I fail right below the knee, I do pause deadlifts and block pulls around that height to strength my weakest part, my lockout. I don't do any speed or deficit work.

My style makes me very fast from the floor but I sacrifice my lockout strength, this helps that. Also psychologically if I pull more and my body can feels it from height its a thousands times easier pulling from the floor.

I either rotate pulls from blocks and from the floor each session, or work from a block reducing the height each session until I'm back to the floor again. I also find block pulls beat me up less so I can train more frequently, it takes me a good two weeks to recover from normal deads these days!

Many ways to skin a cat, just my two cents....

Edit - oh yeah never ever do rack pulls!! just blocks or bumper plates if you want to pull from height.
