    Hi there!

    I was just thinking the other day, that if I added 1.5kg to my DL every month I'd get it to 136kg (~300lb) in about one year's time. Is it possible? Maybe, but probably not but I'll give it a go anyway!

    Some numbers to start with:
    Female, 38yo, 5'4", 62ish kg, current DL 1RM 120kg.

    I'll only post here my workouts that include deadlifts of some kind.

    Today's workout wasn't the best - I had mild headache when leaving for the gym in the morning, decided to ignore it but it got worse when I got there and I had to drop intensity to get anything done... (lighter weights, longer rest periods to keep heart rate low). Below is the copy-paste from the phone app I use to log my workouts.

    Sundays' easy spin. What else there to do when weather is like this!
    I do conventional deadlift on my upper body training days. Nothing too heavy today. I'm following Omar Isuf's simple program on how to get stronger (on youtube) - when you can hit 8reps, go up +2.5%.

    I had an awful day at the gym today. Squats finally beat me. I had to dump the weight on the safeties twice because I just couldn't get up, all in my head though, not my legs. I think I need professional help to fix my squat form at this stage :( I resorted to doing some leg extensions and other funny stuff to work those legs out...

    PR for reps, I should've added that, thanks anyway :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    I have to remind myself to do single-leg RDLs next time - I feel my right hamstring is taking more weight than left. Experimented with walking lunges max weight, 40kg is manageable, 42.5kg - not yet... Walking lunges is one of few leg exercises that leaves me sore the next day, mostly in my glutes ;)

    Last Friday's fun in the gym. I opted for 5x3 instead of 3x5 for DL - I didn't feel like I could manage 5 reps with 110kg but I'll try to get there by doing 3x4 or 4x4 next time and so on.

    I didn't plan to do any DLs yesterday but that Trap-bar looked so sad and lonely there in the corner... so, I decided to have some fun with it, here it is:

    Yeah i was stuck on 47.5 for ages before i went mad last year in a determined effort to get to 60! Just about got it but not in comp! Smolov and allllll the assistance work helped.
    Oh you're basically at bodyweight bench though that's awesome 😍


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    Competing isn't on my to do list, so I'm not pushing myself too hard, no special programming etc, I've heard about Smolov's protocol but I've never tried it... But still it motivates me seeing numbers creeping up, lifting heavy weights is fun!

    I took some days off lifting this week because I wasn't feeling well - I had the sore throat for couple days at the start and then it turned into this nasty chesty cough and blocked nose, I felt cold and zero energy. Today I'm still coughing but feeling better, so here we go again...

    Can I just say I am beyond sick with jealousy of your OHPing? You must have unreal shoulders... 35.5kg for 5. Jaysus :eek: Fair play.

    Thanks for that! My shoulders look normal, I've got nothing impressive on me at all, I'm just fat all around :D ps. my OHP PR is 40kg x1 but I'd swap that for a good squat anytime!
    Talking about squats - I'm going back to high bar squat, I haven't done it for almost a year and that means I'm back to the weights I was working with a year ago :(

    Hurray! Deadlift PR!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    Thanks blue! I'll be hitting 300 pounds in two months time that's for sure!!! Haha, only joking, I don't think so, I must stall sometime soon... I just checked my notes - my DL max was at 85kg a year ago, that's +40kg in one year, it can't keep going up at this rate forever.

    2x bw is awesome. How long are you lifting


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    Two years now with few short breaks (holidays, illness) and setbacks (did my back in twice). And yeah, 2x bw was my original target but my bw is going up faster than the weight on the bar, so I better chase the fixed number :D

    Hurray! Deadlift PR!

    That OHP PR though :eek: #shouldaz

    Are you using fractional plates? Must get some if only for the extra gains whilst having to carry them when walking to the gym (and for my teeny shoulders that can't handle a 2.5kg jump obvs)

    I didn't cop that one! Holy moly

    I do have a set of fractional plates 0.25kg x4 but I haven't used them for a while now, but maybe I should pull them out again. We have 18kg barbells in addition to normal 20kg bars in our gym, so I can work out combinations like 20.5kg, 23kg or 25.5kg etc. I'm not focusing on my OHP that much and all shoulder work in general - my right shoulder is quite dodgy (rotator injury) and can't take much beating and a lot of shoulder exercises hurt my wrists and elbows too.

    I forgot to mention this gym hack I "invented" the other day: when doing OHP I tied 1.25kg plate to the middle of the bar with the rubber band - it worked just perfect, it didn't get in the way or hit me on the head :D And it's half on minimum 2.5kg (1.25x2) jump available in the gym.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,463 ✭✭✭caviardreams


    An 18kg bar - that makes sense! I was wondering why so many of your weights were "funny" totals!

    Nice idea with the 1.25 hanging from the middle - might give it a try!

    Look, I even found a picture of my genius :D

    It adds a small bit of weight to the bar. Rather than having to put both weights on and there aren't 0.625kg fractionals.

    These are serious numbers for your size and gender. Honestly these would put you in the top 20% of my gym for big dutch men.

    Most Dutch men in my town just cycle around the place

    Thanks, but I don't think it's something unusual - most girls get there if they're serious into lifting heavy stuff. There is a few stronger women in our gym, I'm talking (with envy) about ones that can squat a lot.
