The 1RM Deadlift Test
As a serious lifter, you should be able to pass this test:
Set up a trap latch of 2.5 times Your body weight. Get a good repeat now. That's it. A 200-pound man should try to hit a 500-pound deadlift.
Deadlift deadlifts are not inherently "better" to test for strength than traditional squats or deadlifts, but they have a number of unique advantages.
Squats are mostly knee-dominant, with some help from the back chain. Deadlift is usually hip-dominant, with some help from the front chain. There's definitely some overlap between the two, but it's hard to determine who's stronger: a guy with a 500-pound squat and a 400-pound deadlift, or a guy with a 400-pound squat and a 500-pound -Cross raises can govern the debate. It's a hybrid movement that combines the best of the squatting pattern with the best of the hinge pattern.
Instead of focusing on one side of the body, it requires a lot of power from both the rear and the front chain. In addition to recruiting all of the muscles in the lower half, deadlifts with temples require significant upper back and grip strength.
In addition, no lift means more sportiness and performance than the deadlift with catch bars. For example, a vertical jump requires the exercise of maximum force in the ground. This is exactly what is required to lift a maximum loaded folding rod from the ground.
Is not that possible?
Make Folding Deadlift your primary focus on lower body days. Squats and conventional deadlifts naturally help, but nothing increases your deadlift more than the elevator. Heavy singles, sets of 3 to 5 repetitions, and dynamic sets of ribbons or chains will go a long way.
