    Gerry, tbh, I don't think I have much mongrel in me, unless you happen to be a government agency.

    like all sports and activities, your ability to apply yourself to something is often shaped by practice and experience.

    I don't see deadlifting as that difficult to give near 100%.
    How dare I offer an opinion, because vonfram88 knows I did not do maths.

    Personally I find deadlifting to be a lot harder than squatting, and benching is even worse! Most people I know that compete do Sumo due to needing to move the bar less, and their leverages. I don't currently compete, and prefer to do conventional.

    I agree that heavy deadlifts take a lot out of you; but so do other exercises. I have been on the ground for 20 minutes after a set of kettle raises - most reps for two minutes.

    last comp i did in august 2015,i nominated 235 as my 2nd,pretty confident i would get it even tho it was an equal pb.missed it due to trying to anticipate the down call even tho i pulled it.my 3rd deadlift came around so quickly.i wasnt recovered and pulled the slowest hardest deadlift of my life.it took me weeks to become right again.lol @ "20 mins of recovery from kettlebells".deadlifts are far more taxing on your nervous system

    Gerry, anyone can do a deadlift flat out. easy as. if that is your claim to fame, I feel sad for you.

    i dont have a good deadlift sparty.i barely trained it in aussie and find it difficult to stay on track with it.leading into that competition i never touched any deadlifting for about 4-5 weeks because of smolovs,im just giving you a bit of my small experience.

    We had a few deadlift parties here in nz with workmates,i believe its a skill to keep pulling even though your body is telling you to put it down.you can see how much resolve someone has

    the difference between squatting and deadlifting is deadlift is a bigger grind.theres very little to no stretch reflex involved.with squats if you have got your dander up and are confident enough to hit the hole fast,you will bounce someway up.with deadlifting you dont have that luxury.its basically all you from the floor.
