Deadlifts and Car Deadlift

I am currently training for The 2013 North American Strongman National Championship that will be held on October 18th and 19th in Denison, Texas. I’ll be competing in the Lightweight 200# division.

Today’s training went much better than Monday. Today was deadlift day. After my raw work sets I added in my Metal Jack Deadlift suit to try to break it in some. Today was only the second time I’ve pulled in it. I worked up to roughly 90% of my best suited pull for a single. I still haven’t got the feel for the suit, but it’s getting better. My lockout isn’t the best, but this has to do with my set up I believe. And Nationals only has a car deadlift – so I’m not too worried about my suited pull at the moment. I am planning to do a strongman push/pull meet this December though, so after Nationals I plan to spend quite a bit more time in the suit.
