185 lbs – almost but my grip was too weak

My previous deadlift PR was 152 lbs (August 10, 2010); I was working with a trainer once a week at that time and not training specifically for deadlifting.

This time I followed Pavel’s 10 week training program. The program actually took me longer than 10 weeks because I took a break after week 7 to work on my form. Then I started back on week 4. And I also had to cut the training short by one week because of my upcoming vacation.

I really liked Pavel’s program because it was simple. But, the program was not easy – especially week 7 when I was doing 5 x 5. I can honestly say though that I always looked forward to my deadlift training day (usually Wednesday).

My glutes have definitely gotten stronger along with my vastus medialis.

My weight today was 118.5 lbs.
