Just a touch off balance - looked good to me. Hows the other hand compare?

Thanks bro!

I got air with the right but couldn't hold it for the whole lift.

Nice lift 315 would be insane though

Is this done with or without hook though I couldn't tell, great either way.

With a hook 315 is certainly doable. 315# is a great lift without a hook. You're in rare air at that point!

Thanks Stephen!!

No Hook!!! I actually never lifted with hook.

Next time I will lift with inner arm showing with grip hand,wasn't paying attention to detail.

Thanks for taking a look.

Wanting to hit my grip hard for grippers so no hook here..

Don't get me wrong I believe 315 would be harder than hell,just a long term goal.

I believe I will get close anyway...

The bar you use makes quite a bit of difference also - my Eleiko training bar spins like crazy and is slick - much different than a Texas Power bar of similar. And a bar with a bit of bend in it can add a lot of weight to your lift.

Great lift David! Chris has some great points. Bar is EVERYTHING on a one-hand deadlift. Especially with no hook. I have done 275lbs on the thumbless-grip one-hand deadlift in competition (220lbs bodyweight in 2009) and I can tell you that within a few weeks of that same lift my highest lift on my training bar (slick, rotates well, but actually a cheapie bar) was about 220lbs. I have never lifted on another bar that this bar wouldn't allow me to add quite a bit of poundage to though. It is super hard. I've pulled 308lbs (no hook) on it some years ago in a one-hand deadlift. You will get to 315lbs - just keep the faith and persevere!

Thanks Ben!

Appreciate the support!

I probably should have waited till I put in more time with this lift before I threw out a 315lb goal lift.

I will keep at it and see what comes.

Thanks again for checking it out bro!

How do you guys feel this style compares with a more traditional facing the bar one handed dead? Setting up in a sumo like stance but with only one hand in the middle?

That was a great lift man, 315 should be well within your reach.

I'm only asking causw I have no idea but how does this differ from farmers walks?
