Congrats on achieving what you set out to do, even though you never update your fking log. Start a new one to get 1000kg total! And update it so we can gain some inspiration!

Sam was opening in 312.5 deadlift. Not sure if thst number had changed. I'd bet he has his mind on 1st place total and then 1000kg. He finished on his opening bench which probably puts more pressure on getting that 1000kg total but it's still possible.

Doesn't this make it a deficit deadlift? The plates still deform the mats underneath...

ChrisMcCarthy said:Your weight "changes" due to the way the scales settle differently on a soft surface - they are calibrated on a hard surface (generally) and even the tiny difference in distance (due to the way the physical structure of the scales bend) between the sensors add up to a large amount of difference on the display.


Would you say that there's any (more than 1%) difference in the actual energy require to shift a certain mass whilst on a soft surface? I mean will it affect my deads/squats?

Get a piece of wood and cut it 50cm long and have it lathed 50mm thick. This will allow you to make a poor man's loadable stone with plates.



This is also probably the last time in my life I wore a vest, so quit taking the piss.

93hopkinsonr said:Having this exact problem at the moment mate. The gym owner put 2 inches of a foam like thing under where we deadlift and then a piece of ply and rubber mat over that. Iíve badically had no joy at all deadlifting since he did that and 2 adductor injuries which could be due to the slight movement?

Iím also an explosive puller from the ground but seem to have lost that power and am more of a ďSavickasĒ slow type puller recently.

Iíve deadlifted a couple of times at different gym on a proper concrete floor and it feels better but Iíve lost strength.

So, my advice is to sort it out quickly and pull off something concrete if possible before you lose gains lol


I'm going to remove a few mats and lift off concrete the next time I'm doing heavy pulls.

LessThanLuke said:How soft are the mats?


Soft enough to make a significant difference to what the scales show when I'm weighing myself. They don't visibly squish at all. Here's a very similar product, the only difference is mine are 40x40cm.

I quite like the name of this website!

Energy lost going into said flooring.

Bodyweight on tiles - 88.7
Bodyweight on rubber mats - 78.7

12% difference due to flooring.

I'm thinking the energy I'm putting into the floor is lost from mats. My bench is the strongest it's been for a very long time and hitting PBs, but deadlift is lagging at "normal" levels for me. Could this be due to energy lost to compress the mats instead of it going to the bar?

Do I make any sense?

Should I take off some rubber mats and deadlift on concrete to see if there's any serious difference to the weights I'm lifting?

Love the way youíre casually strolling towards bench PB territory (who cares about body weight) 10? 15? years into training after having a few injuries too. Solid work.


Thanks. This is the best my benching has ever been whilst eligible for IPF comps. I did hit 160 for a casual single before, but that was whilst inly eligible for untested comps.

I want to see if deadlifting on concrete yields better results than pulling on 20mm rubber flooring, because the scales show about 15% less on the latter and I'm sure there's a fair bit of energy loss.

I'm still injured all over though.
