There have been plenty of "Race to" threads on this board.  Most dedicated to grip and bending.  I participated in a few and they were great.  Is anyone interested in a deadlift "Race"?  I know many on here weight train pretty seriously.

 

I now weigh about 185.  I figure I am about 30 to 40#s away from this 2.5 x BW goal.  My body weight is slowly creeping up so this is gonna be a bit of a moving target.  As of now, I am shooting for 465.

Great thread idea. I think there's a lot to be said about total body strength as a limiting factor in grip. I'm working quite a bit myself to get stronger in the core lifts. Ill jump in this race too....
Current deadlift max: 395 @ 195 BW

I'm in.  That's my next goal on the way to 300 KG.  Bodyweight around 250 right now, so the goal is 625.  I have pulled 600 raw and 615 in a squat suit (about 2 months ago), but weighed about 20 lbs more than I do right now.  Just recently started back after a couple months off due to a nasty quad tear.  My max right now is probably only around 565-575.  If I can get to 625 at this bodyweight, when I go on my next bulking phase, I should be good for 660-700 (700 being the ultimate goal).

700 at any bodyweight would be pretty darn diesel, as would any 2.5x + number at 250!

 

I can't join, but I'll be watching this one.

BW: 128
PR: 275 DO
Goal: 325 DO

 

you do 2.5 x BW DO on an axle and you will be crowned king of this thread.  have you tried 2.5 x BW on a barbell with mixed grip?

glad to have you....please share your wisdom.  getting up to 600 regardless of BW takes a lot of time under tension.

Not much wisdom. Lol. I got there by pulling heavy singles and doubles. Just trying to set a pr every sessission. About 3 years of training it off and on while concentrating mostly on bending. When I'm training dl I pull once or twice a week, but with low volume / high intensity. The time I've actually spent over the bar is pretty minimal. At 45 yo, with a surgically repaired back, I can't handle marathon sessions. 30 minutes and I'm ready for food. :-)

I'll join, although I deadlift infrequently.  Current BW is ~90kg.  Max deadlift is 200kg x 2.

I should clarify that my 275 DO was on an oly bar, not my axle.

My best on the axle has been 230, and I managed to pull BW for 27 reps today.

 

My mixed grip max and DO max are identical. Right now, my back is limiting me and training it is the way I plan to get stronger.

 

If my back could pull 325, I'm sure my grip will hold up.

You're making good progress in a lot of areas.

Thanks Mike, it all feels like its coming together physically. I'm starting to finally figure out how my body responds to training.

i tweeked my back recently (not deadlifting).  i haven't been training for almost 2 weeks.  as a result, i am re assessing my programming to assure continued progress while reducing risk of injury.  this is still a goal of mine but i need to step back from conventional deadlifting for a bit.  i am going to play with jefferson and sumo deadlifts to strengthen myself through different ranges of motion. i am also going to work on strengthening my erector spinae through their ROM.  most everything i do is with a flat back which is for safety purposes but this doesn't help me when lifting atlas stones or sandbags off the ground.
