    In! Let's let @Perrin Aybara and @Worf make the rules. I don't know what goes and what doesn't.

    How’s this work? Video posts? What’s the rules for starting point?

    What’s hitching?

    Shrugging and leveraging the weight against your quads. It’s a motion to Jack the weight up when you just can’t get that lockout.

    Yes video proof, starting point? The weight must be still on the ground. Or did you mean something else?

    Best way to anonymously post a video? I've tried from phone wont load. YouTube may have too much info

    I think @Perrin Aybara uses a secondary youtube account and edits his face

    I mean is there a max that we have pulled so far to qualify for this? I’m not close to 500 but in the low 4’s

    You fit the criteria perfectly. I believe the ideal candidate for the challenges is for those who need to add 50-100 lbs to achieve the number.

    At 450 now. I deadlifted 500 a few years back and posted a video on Facebook. Got roasted pretty bad for my form.

    Okay decided to get in on this too. Just left the gym only did some dead’s and reverse hypers today.

    Have videos but need to edit my face out.

    Did the following
    135x6 fast
    225x4 fast
    315x3
    405x1
    455x1

    Then after that I dropped to 315 and did 3 sets of 3.
    I set up pulled then reset and pulled again for 3 times total working on my form.

    Only had wrist wraps and belt
    This was my first time going past 315 in a year or so.

    I need to work on my form for sure looking at the videos I start at 45 degree but soon as a start the pull I push up with my legs which in turn pushes my butt up and then it’s like I’m doing a straight leg dead lift. So I need to work on my form these next few weeks.

    And I thought I could bench more than deadlift it’s amazing what competition does to the mindset!
