    Fear of breaking the floor makes me lower the bar under control;-)
    Seriously, the people in the apartment under my training room already suffer enough.

    Thanks again for your kind words, comrades!

    I prefer to lower the bar under control.

    "On the signal "Down" from the chief referee, accompanied by a downward movement of the hand and arm, the lifter must return the bar to the platform."

    Note the term "return" used instead of "drop".

    In my opinion, DLing triple bodyweight or more earns you the right to drop the bar from top. Until then, keep the unnecessary noise down and lower the bar with some control at least.

    Fair enough. I'm pretty new to this deadlifting malarky and I have been taking my time over the last 4 weeks just getting a feel for the lift. I have been dropping the bar for now but then I am in my garage, but also I'm using a girly weight lol so that's no excuse!

    Good physiques are not given. They are forged through time, effort, dedication and hard work.

    Reinhardt, watched the video, great job. That is not a one rep max. You have a lot more than that in you at this very moment. Get that hamstring thing sorted out and you're good for a lot more on that lift. Do you feel that on lighter weights, or was this the first time?

    I highly encourage you to get a lesson from an experienced powerlifter. You're at the point where it will make a huge difference. I posted a little while ago about how when I started working with my coach, she took me from a lifetime best of 350, which I had pulled several months previous, to two singles with 405 in one week. You could do similar with good coaching.

    Thank you Jason!

    Not at lighter weights. That was the first time.
    I'll do Good Mornings and/or RDLs to strenghten those hammies.

    I'm sure you're right, but poorly i don´t know any PLers or PL clubs/gyms in my area.
    I mailed to the German RAW Association, maybe they know someone.
