    Default How many members here pull over 500lbs?

    I`m feeling terrible right now with a cold. I just don`t feel like pulling tomorrow but I`m going to any way. It makes me wonder how many people on this forum can pull over 500lbs. It seems every 30 seconds I suck up snot and wonder how much fortitude it takes to pull 700 pounds!

    Not me, only 2x BW on a good day. (I weigh about 170). I'd like to get to 400 which I think is easily attainable as I'm just starting to put some more focus on it. 500? Guess I'll think about that down the road. 700? Way down a different road.

    I'm sorry what do you mean by saying Pull?

    I think he means deadlift

    If that's the case, 460 @ 165 here. Deadlift goal is at least 530 by the end of the year.

    To be honest, the deadlift is such a total body lift, that if you have a cold you're probably better off getting the rest and having a go at it another day.

    I have pulled 425, back in September. I haven't maxed recently, but I'm guessing I could hit 450. I'd like to hit 475~500 by the end of the year. I recently started a new approach. I'm alternating 2 weeks of PTTP with 2 weeks of Dimel pulls, sometimes I do the Dimels with chains as well. The fast pulls have made a big difference in my power. Sumos used to be brutally slow for me, and now they go right up. I should mention I alternate sumos and conventional. stances.

    Hi Treesmasher,
    In 2009 I was able to get to 605 after 2 years of focused work (on the DL). Mostly used Pavel's PTTP program with partials (above and below the knee). Since then my focus has been on endurance type work (ala Tough Mudder), so haven't been doing any DL'ing. I've dropped 45 pounds so am probably back in the low to mid 400's. I think you might be better off not pushing it while your sick. You won't lose anything if you hold off for a week or two. Sometimes it might actually help for recovery.
    Hope this helps.

    I can - 230kg at 87kg bw in raw (Belt only) competition ( 507lbs at 192lbs ). I've done 235kg whilst weighing a shade over 90kg in the gym. I regularly hit 230kg in training.

    I barely pull 300, but that's the price I pay for training the one armed chin up. Once I get multiple reps of that, I intend to work up to 400+ pounds.

    If you're on the verge of getting sick, deadlifting/heavy lifts in general make it more likely that you will get sick. If you're already sick, they may delay your recovery. Sometimes, the most productive thing you can do for your training is not train for a week or two. Either way, drink a lot of water and make sure you're getting some vitamin C.

    And to answer your original question, I pull over 500 as well.
