    Kettlebell How to maintain/build deadlift strength, train KBs, and BJJ simultaneously?

    I hope the KB forum is the appropriate section for this... I'm switching from doing 5/3/1 with lots of added volume and accessories four times a week to Simple and Sinister in an effort to simplify my training and life. I also got back into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I realized time and energy-wise...

    Barbell Strong swing, weak deadlift - how to bridge the gap?

    Starting a new thread here to pick up from an interesting conversation on this thread in the kettlebell forum. I have a fairly strong kettlebell swing - 10×10 one handed with a 40kg bell at 145lbs body weight - but a fairly weak deadlift - 100kg/220lbs seems to be my max, I can just about get...

    Barbell Why not RSR?

    Here is the link to Brett Jones's article on the Russian Squat Routine (RSR). I have been doing PTTP for the last 4 months. I have gone from a 5RM of 255 lbs. to 275 lbs., and hopefully 285 lbs. this week. My deadlift has increased 5-10lbs per month. I have a rare, clear training window of 3-5...

    Barbell 1 REP MAX?

    Tonight during training I worked on my deadlift. I lifted 136Kg with good form, then 60 second rest. I did this for a total of 12 reps, setting up, maintaining form and controlled descent. I did not go to failure and probably could have done several more. My 1 rep max calculator shows a...

    Barbell 2018 Delaware Senior Olympics

    Just completed the 2018 Delaware Senior Olympics at Crossfit Dover in Delaware....brought home 3 more gold medals! My 380# deadlift is a new DSO record in my class. (But not my PR385#) I asked for 380#, then feeling good I changed to 400#. Somehow they missed my change and my last lift was...

    Barbell PTTP with 10lb increments?

    I have a weird problem. I am doing PTTP and the gym I go to has several barbells and lots of plates. However, for some strange reason they only have four (!) 2.5lb plates. Usually this is not an issue at all - I only need two at most on any given session and I am always the first one at the gym...

    About half way through a 40 workout (easy strength) challenge created by Dan John off T nation. The daily “practice” sessions and pretty much everyday frequency has really progressed my deadlift which I’ll need for the fall tsc in which I’m entering elite.

    Barbell Deadlift Resources

    Are there any deadlift lift resources that you guys like? @Anna C I'm tagging you on here since the program you recommended by @aciampa has deadlifts. Ideally I would go get a form check (which I plan to do) but I'd like to start educating myself with tutorials and visual aids.

  17. Barbell Form check - deadlift and back squat

    Hey guys, I would like to ask you to check my form on deadlift and back squat. J just moved to low-bar squat. It's much more comfortable then high-bar in terms on hips movement and body position. As you see I struggle to get into position at both exercises. While getting everything prepered...

    has anyone experienced a compliment between the 2? I've read Karen Smith say that healthy deadlifts are good for pullups Geoff Neupert says they are complimentary exercises in Strength Shortcuts yet I've always thought they are too much of the same thing.. i wonder why
