    Trap bar deadlift (hooks): 5x10x410# in 19:00

    I made the sets longer but I handled them reasonably well. I might try and get routine sets of 15 next.

    been wanting to give level 5 (2 x's bw) a go.... so i figured it was in the cards tonight.

    bw - 130 lbs.

    warmup: 135 x 6; 185 x 4; 235 x 4

    timed reps (10:00): 260 x 6, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1 = 23 total reps

    (all full stop reps.... no touch n go.......no chalk either since i forgot it)

    Level 2 (current bw = 251)

    warm up: 135x5

    25 reps @ level 2

    :D

    Level 2 (current bw = 234.6 lbs)

    timed reps (10:00): @ 235 lbs (100% full stops)

    75 reps @ level 2

    This was used as my second(and last) assistance exercise for deadlift day (5/3/1 week 3 day 4). Can I go home now? :cry:

    Level 2 (current bw = 205.2 lbs)

    Fully hydrated and slightly bloated from a dessert filled evening last night. ;)

    timed reps (10:00): @ 255 lbs (Alternating mixed grip, light chalk, and a mix of full stop sets and touch and go, i.e. anything goes)

    70 reps @ level 2

    Warm up was the rest of my workout(did front squats and bench press prior to deads). I unfortunately thought that level 3 was 1.25 x bw(which I calculated in my head... off as well, go figure. Either was, I think I'll remember this tomorrow. And the next day.

    These were all done in sets of ten except the last set. I only got 9 reps and then looked at the clock only to see 10 seconds left. I didn't want to end at 69 reps, so I grabbed it with a fairly uneven and awkward grip and powered it up for the last rep.

    Good times. :D

    This would be why. 69 x 255 would have been almost the exact same volume/density. Nearly a year later and no progress? Boo. Hiss.

    Regardless... I think I may go for 315 next time.

    BW today: 209.2lbs

    Decided to do a level 3 challenge today and loaded 315 lbs after my warms.

    315x8,8,8,8,8,8,4 in ten minutes.

    That last set got stopped short by the clock. I was really hoping for 57 reps, but fell short with only 52. Good showing, regardless. :tu:

    decided to just knock it out tonight even though i did a lot of back work earlier in the day. my scale was at 132 this morning in sweats and stuff so figure 260 was close enough.

    went for level 5 (bw x 2):

    dl: 130 x 6; 200 x 4
    started 10 min timer: 260 x 5, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 3 (24 reps)

    upped the last set to three so i could beat my previous best (two years ago) at this level lol.

    Once upon a time I did 72x325# in 10 minutes.

    Haven't come close since.

    Amazing how much of it is endurance based. I can deadlift 455#, but I can't do more than 30x325# in 10 minutes these days.

    Brutal. My cardio, by a mile, is my limitation on this challenge.


    Warmup: deadlifts: 45 x 10, 95 x 5, 135 x 5

    Timed Deadlift Challenge
    Level 1'ish: 185/229 = 81% for 10 minutes

    185 x 15, 11, 10, 8, 6, 5 = 55 reps

    --

    Notes: Here is some mathematical calculations to keep tabs on my progress....it will also be an easy way to compare level 1 to level 2.
    (Because for me, this was 100% absolutely limited to my cardio capacity...:nod:...which is what it will take for me to improve in this challenge)

    Top of bar at resting position: 8 inches (with 45 lb plates on it)
    Top of bar at my lockout position: 34 inches
    Bar travels 26 inches every rep. (2.17 feet)

    work = weight * height
    work = 185 lb * 2.17 ft = 401.45 ft-lb/rep
    work = 401.45 ft-lb/rep * 55 reps
    work = 22,079.75 ft-lb

    power = work/time
    power = 22,079.75 ft-lb / 600 seconds
    power = 36.8 ft-lb/s

    1 horsepower = 550 ft-lb/s

    my power = 0.06691 horsepower

    1 horse power = 745.7 watts

    my power = 49.9 watts

    ---

    This also shows why it is harder to lift weights when you are tall.
    Someone shorter that has, say an 18 inch bar travel distance would have to do the same number of reps with 267 lbs instead of 185 to generate the same amount of power in 10 minutes....so there!

    But long arms are bad for bench, pressing, rows, etc...:lol:

    --

    This made for the most brutal 10 minutes I have experienced in a long time...
    I had that mouth watering thing going for a good 20 minutes after I finished this....an indicator that I went all out....and my fitness capacity is just gawdawful....lol

    My goal is going to be to try and get as close to this total power output while increasing to level 2....:scared:

    I am going to try it in 4-6 weeks or so....I can't imagine doing this more than once a month....

    decided to try level 4 again three years later. lol bodyweight is still right around 130. added five lbs to the dl weight and had to give every last morsel of will i had in me to beat this.... but i did. probably should of gone a couple less reps on the first set. live n learn.

    level 4: 230 lbs (bw 130) x 11, 6, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 = 52 total reps.
