it's not so much the weight after all, one man's 350kg is another man's 150kg. it's more how long the lift takes x weight.
which sadly is a double whammy as weight increases so does time to complete the lift. so the failure develops quite suddenly over a smallish increase.
for my typical weights this happens with a hook grip:
290kg - easily held on to
305kg - fail.

As long as it goes up, doesn't matter how!

What's your max again Matthew? About 320?

matthewvc said:it's great position to pull from but I do think you need reasonably big hands to get best out of it -
i have dropped too many 300+ deadlifts torn thumb many times not being able to wrap it fully under bar.

switched back to mix recently and grip feels so much stronger.

Probably different when you pull real weights, but I like it. I guess I have pretty big paws. That definitely helps!

Just practice with moderate lifts, it will soon catch up.

I have been hook gripping for ages now. Granted I'm a sub 250 puller, but I don't feel any pain now. Or at least very little.

Imo a far better option than alternate when mastered.

I agree! I think he's going to win big comps this year!

At the moment it's all speculation but I've done 370 in sleeves on calibrated plates(it was a gym lift), but this SHOULD give me 400 in wraps. 260 and 340 should be possible to round the total off. 260 is there or thereabouts for me. 340 is the hard bit, I am not a great deadlifter.

I have seen most of your videos and the 370 was huge! Well most get around 10% from wraps, so you should get 400, if your confidence is high.

I'm not doubting a 260 bench either.

Wouldn't call 340 a s**te deadlift.

I'm competing in 4 weeks and using wraps

I hope you or Tom are the first. Didn't know you where wearing wraps. If/when you squat 400, you probably will hit 1000

Depends who next competes. It's either Tom or Loz. Loz wore sleeves and his lifts looked effortless.

Tom looked like he probably already had a 1000 in him. Hope it's Tom as it's awesome weighing under 110!

Not be long until a few gentlemen hit 1000.

Ed please stay away from powerlifting. We don't want to create a thread for 1100/1200 totals!!
» 800 and 900 totals in britain (Go to post)13-11-2017 @ 21:03 
Soon need to edit the title to 900 and 1000. Tom and Loz are going there soon.

Definitely had more on the squat and probably deadlift too.

The man is something else. He will smash 1000 in his next comp!
