5 Exercises to Build a 900lbs Deadlift | Cailer Woolam

Video taken from the channel:

Completely shatter your current deadlift personal record by performing these 4 exercises! Learn which exercises to perform to make your deadlift max jump! I will admit that early on, I fell in love with the deadlift. Snatch grip deadlift 3 sets 4-6 reps. 1B.

Leg curl variation 3 sets 8-12 reps. Wrapping up. Strengthening your weakness and improving your technique will lead to a safer and stronger deadlift while hopefully smashing through your PR’s. Because deadlifts are awesome. Few exercises compare with the deadlift when it comes to building size and strength, specifically in the traps, lower back, glutes, and hamstrings.Strengthening those muscles helps promote better posture and a lowered risk of exercise-related injury.

However, you’ll reap those rewards only if you’re deadlifting correctly.. And if you catch yourself doing any of the five common mistakes. A new deadlift PR requires a program with a progressive loading scheme that also focuses on becoming more explosive.

This program uses snatch-grip deadlifts, deficit deadlifts, deadlifts from blocks, and conventional deadlifts to train weak points without detraining the specific motor pattern. We’ve assembled four exercises that are variations of the basic deadlift that all have the essential elements of the dead but with striking differences. Because the deadlift is a full-body move, being as much of a press as it is a pull, you can insert these variations into a mixed routine that hits different bodyparts on the same day. 1.

These 5 Deadlift Variations Are The Best Exercises You’re (Probably) Not Doing The best full body exercise to add to your gym routine, pronto By Abbi Henderson. Rack pulls, or heavy partial deadlifts, are my preferred way to build a heavy deadlift. But they are also chronically misused when heavy full deads are the goal. If you can use a metric ass-load of weight on your rack pulls you’re doing them wrong. You shouldn’t be able to pull any more than about 10 percent your deadlift max on a rack pull.

Form and strength are both key for developing a better Power Clean, which is one of the big five exercises used in strength and conditioning programs. Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Presses and. Snatch grip deadlift, 3 sets of 4 to 6 reps 1B. Leg curl variation, 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps Other useful exercises for the upper back: Double kettlebell front squat, single arm row variation. This just goes to show that if you put the work in, anything is possible.

Yes i did set a new personal record but with that being said it doesnt mean i can actualy handle 335 with ease. I look.

To recap: place the feet and grip shoulder-width apart, grip the bar like the bench press, keep the back neutral, descend straight to the clavicles, tilt the head back while looking forward, raise the bar along the same path, shift the torso forward slightly, squeeze the glutes, and lock out.

The first pull, transition and second pull actions for the clean are practically identical to those for the snatch (with the major difference being a higher starting position of the hips caused by a narrower grip on the bar).

  • Thank you a lot for this great videos! And is possible to break scar tissue from an old muscle tear? Could you do a video about untreated muscle tears that got scar tissue formed? A lot of people have this issue, they didnt knew the bill starr protocol to rehab the teear early, and they formed this adhession/scar tissue

  • 545 SUMO Deadlift…. huge difference. Which is why sumo doesnt count for competition. Why not have her straight deadlift 400? Still impressive as hell.

  • Sad to say Jeff is about as strong as me. Sad because I’m a lot bigger than him. I solely work out as a bodybuilder with reps between 6 to 20, but that’s just excuses. He’s a strong guy for a small dude.

  • I’m 44 years old and I work out with 425lbs every week. Is this considered to be a heavy load? It honestly doesn’t feel all the heavy and its taken me 3 years to get up to this slowly. Hmm? should I be using lighter weight? I mean, I want to be in this for the long run, but it honestly doesn’t feel all that heavy on my back and I could go higher.

  • trust me what they do is pretty important, I already increased my deadlift by 35lb in 2 weeks. I weight 158 pounds my deadlift is 385pounds. Thanks 2 them I’ll hit 405 soon

  • He’s not that big, if I was rowing 500lbs (let alone deadlifting 900) I’d want to have giant arms. His shoulders are impressive, he’s in great shape (looks more like a personal trainer than a world class deadlifter.) The only thing that makes him look amateur is his shins are all cut up, he needs those shin guards that Eddie Hall uses (I think it was him, like stone sleeves; but for your shins.) My best deadlift was 500lbs, both times it got up that high; calluses ripped off my hand. My best squat for reps was 20 reps at 405lbs.

  • This to me is more impressive then Eddie halls world record just because of his size..I mean look at how small this guy is..he is a super human.

  • I have to respectfully disagree. Non specific “functional” mobility exercises have little to no translation to the main movement. Best way to warm up if you will, for any particular movement pattern is to perform that movement pattern.

  • That’s life…. injuries ruin our plans in life
    Only a small percentage of athletes are able to achieve their goals and injuries not hindering them
    That’s why u should love what u do.. not what u gain from it

  • Regarding the deep squat stretch, is it more appropriate to go deep and regardless of what the spine does or to go only as deep as one can with a neutral spine? Part of why I deadlift is because I lack the ankle mobility for a good deep squat ��

  • OK someone explain to me whats going on here… Eddie hall lifts 1,100lbs and basically almosts dies… Comes this guy a FRACTION of his weigh pulling 900? Someone explain this…

  • I love your content but am still confused by your squat stance (parallel), which you said applies to most people.. is there any research to support this claim? from anecdotal evidence I feel like 99.99% lifters can’t squat with their toes straight

  • I got my nan to do some rows like Cailer, she then performed a 900lbs deadlift, but his advice is bullshit as once you stop doing the rows she’s straight back to lifting only 45lbs.

  • Man can I divide a full body workout into a push pull split that means 6 workouts a week,3 push days and 3 pull days with 6 sets per muscle group per workout ( quads on push and hams on pull)

  • They should have mixed competition according to ratio (weight lifted/ body weight). Pound for pound she is probably one of the strongest people in the world.

  • I think you should always go until you fail, UNLESS you have a reason to believe you’re going to get hurt. Your form is good, and you use spotters, so I think full send them.

  • My son conventional deadlifts 920 but he weighs 285 lbs. He attributes Hermon Volume training to the weight gain and hypertrophy progress. He completed a 4 week 10×10, 4 week 6x 10, and 6 week 5-4-3 x 10 cycle. In weeks one and two he incorporated a 4 to five acclamation sets with five sets at 67% 72% and up to 86% of his one rep max. In weeks three and four acclamation sets dropped back to two and three sets and primary set poundages increased by 5-15 lbs depending on the lift performed. Bench and shoulder press numbers sky rocketed. Squat and deadlift numbers soared collectively at nearly the same rate of progress adding 125 lbs to the one rep maxes. Striking and grappling power and stamina also doubled in just 14 weeks

  • I used this routine pre deadlift I was so primed and ready crushed my lifts. “Why not warm up with deadlift?” That’s what I’d normally do, but there’s so many muscles in the legs you need to prime that assist the deadlift that just don’t wake the same with the dead’s. Especially if you lift heavy. Your cns wil start being taxed before you got the entire leg warm

  • OmarIsuf, I spoke to an online trainer and he said the following: In general, the hook grip is used primarily for those in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. Where the lift lasts just for a fleeting moment. Using the Hook Grip for Deads is a different story…not that it can’t be done, or that it’s not appropriate, but your time under compression forces on the thumb are so significantly longer than with a Clean or a Snatch.

  • Dont dig the bar so deep into your hand for PLing. I have a whole video on this but cliff notes no matter what the bar is going to slip until a certain point this is what causes tears and pain. This doesnt actually weaken your grip either, if it did the bar would drop out of your hands every time it reaches this point but it never does. Also where ever you train your grip that will become your strongest grip.

    Also starting with a looser grip will shorten the ROM (the larger your hands the shorter the ROM will get).

  • can you demonstrate DLs workout itself and DOs and Donts. i recently filmed myself and my mid back rounds a lot to pick up the bar. Thank you Dr.

  • Hi doc. Thank you so much for your deadlift warm up vid. It’s been a massive help. I have a specific problem and that is a sharp stabbing pain in the middle of my right glute and right hamstring tightness, which becomes excessive during high volume deadlift sessions. What can I do specifically to address this issue. Thanks. David

  • Steffi is one of those humans that I say can keep records like this, haha call me weak I think it sucks enough pulling this at 161 BW. Props

  • Pulled 611 for a single without any grip issues back in January, but more recently low 500’s have been difficult due to hookgrip issues. Hookgrip is a skill that needs to be revisited whenever there’s a failure. A good rule of thumb for me is the ability to pull 3-5 reps with hookgrip with 80-90% of my estimated 1RM. If I can do that, singles at maximal load aren’t typically an issue.

    Hope that helps dude!

  • 1) Deep goblet squat stretch for hip mobility 0:23
    2) Hip Airplane for hip coordination and rotation stability 1:51
    3) Bridges for priming glute strength/activation 3:55
    4) Bird Dog for core stability 6:03

  • Stefi is a genuine champion and heroine. Every single workout for me begins on the bike watching clips of Stefi’s deadlifts and competitive performances. Her face alone when she’s in the zone, reflecting all her drive, ambition, motivation, focus, the dogged determination in her eyes, just getting to it and getting it done despite the pressure, the nerves, the fears, the naysayers… Yeah Stefi Cohen doing her thing is all I need to see to fire me up to have full blown 100% effort, 100% muscle contraction and failure workouts every day. Love you Stefi, you’re my hero!

  • Cailer once judged one my powerlifting meets ���� I was the last person to go on the deadlift and struggled bad, and when the meet was over he just walked up to it, lifted it like it was 100lbs ���� and had the people strip the weight

  • Stefi I need you to spank me I’ve been a bas boy!! Seriously Impressive my max is 60 lbs more than that but I am a man who outweighs her by 90lbs! I think she is hot as fuck too!

  • That’s what I’m talking about. Even though everyone’s body is different, if you are a female power lifter, then your muscles should be thick and developed like Stefi’s. She’s an inspiration.

  • Your four warm up exercises are yoga poses. Chair pose, warrior 3, bridge pose and bird dog. I guess I’ve been doing the right thing by doing my yoga class then immediately go into the weight room for my deadlifts. Seemed to be common sense to me. Mark Rippitoe of Starting Strength thinks yoga is useless.

  • I am a SIck Badass Mozepacker will stick a knife iN youR back TWIST TWIST TWIST TWIST TWIST IT NO CHICK WILL OUTPERFORM ME PERIOD.

  • 15lbs extra on the DL to pull 500 would’ve been more of a confidence boost (seeing as you bring up confidence multiple times in the video) to ones’ overall max out recap. But that’s just me.

  • This is beast for a woman but it was still a sumo with wrist straps.

    I don’t get this culture of using straps still being considered raw. I mean if you lack the grip strength to lift the weight then that means you lack the strength to lift the weight. If the tendons in your wrist can’t handle the weight then you can’t handle the weight. Straps are assistance. Imagine claiming to be able to lift the millennium dumbell but only with a strap.

  • Man.. that knee wobble scares me. Lol also you getting down on your knees on the wood. Killing me just watching let alone doing this before we hit deads�� what would you recommend for proper and safe neck stretching and warm ups? ����

  • So I also have an issue with 405 mentally. I’ve deadlifted into the 500s and squatted in the high 400s but every time 4 plates go on each side i have to sit there and think a little.

  • The best warm up for deadlifts is to do light deads getting progressively heavier, using good form….lowering the number of reps as the weight increases…just like Mark Rippetoe says….

  • Any woman using anabolics is going to HATE their life when they get older and are no longer using anabolics. Their bodies will turn to slum, hormones FUCKED and irreversible, thyroids all over the place, not to mention the mental annihilation. Feel sorry for any woman that is dumb enough to use gear for just for a a few years of “Fame”. Life is all about making your own choices though right? and then regretting them later lmao.

  • For anyone wondering, eating fruit before a lift is helpful because of the natural sugars in them, it’s quick healthy energy for your body

  • no one agrees that the first guy failed. they all agree that his solid steel bar failed him after he became stronger than it. he needs a solid tungsten bar to transcend his plateau

  • Could you please guide me about which shoes to use for deads. I am not comfortable with my weight lifting shoes for deads. I recently hit a new pr 495×3. Used flat vans and felt their good. Do suggest some please.

  • hi, last session was a hard deadlift session.after that day i felt a pain in my right lower back and i want to fix it quickly hhh.hope you answer me

  • Great video! I’m going to try this next time I do deadlifts. But I’m wondering if it’s safe to push the knees out so they are lateral to the feet? I thought they were supposed to stay in line with the feet to prevent injury. Can you shed some light?

  • Since I’ve started squatting with squat shoes, I often feel a painless compression inside my knees during squat sessions, which I did not experience when I used to squat barefoot. I noticed that when I get in the bottom position, I feel that I usually lose tension in the point between my glutes and hamstrings (even if there’s no visible butt wink in the video checks), so I guessed I am not engaging the hamstrings to neutralize the forces acting on the knee, and get that compression feeling.
    Would you say my idea makes sense? Would you have any clarification about this issue?
    Thank you in advance if you can answer me, and good luck:)

  • Another excellent video and it came just on the same day as my new training block deadlift workout. Felt really good as I usually have tight hips during/after. Balance is tough on the hinge movement but I’ll get there. Thanks for everything, you’re Awesomeness ����

  • my mental barrier is 405 on the bench. I’ve tried it twice and hurt my pec twice when trying to do it. going to try it again near the end of the year though.

  • I got a deadlift question the bar feels like it’s about to roll out of my hands I’m only doing 205 1×5 it makes it hard to lock out properly what can I do?

  • Finally something I can use consistently. I’m always doing lunges, stretching calfs, hams, leg swings, treadmill, planks, etc. This makes sense and simple. Thank you Dr. Aaron.

  • Hey guys! I keep getting a lot of questions about my next high frequency Full Body Program. I decided I’m going to run the new program myself for about a month before releasing it on my website. Starting it tomorrow. This, of course, means I’m officially finished my 9 week Upper/Lower program and I have to say, it’s definitely my favorite program I’ve released publicly. I set a bunch of 3-year PRs after finishing it and I believe I have achieved a significant body recomposition effect as well. So for those of you eager for a new program to run, you can give my Push Pull Legs or Upper/Lower program a shot (or another run through) while I perfect the next plan and get it ready for launch. They can all be found here: Hope everyone’s having a great weekend so far!

  • Am I the only one who was disappointed by the early shut down on the sumo? Feels rather disingenuous on a video where the title states he’s testing his maxes on the big three.

  • if i’m honest here, it annoys the fuck out of me when i see people that haven’t done much power lifting thinking they’re hot shit, and attempting to jump in without knowing anything about what they’re doing and expecting to be able to squat 500 lbs…

  • Astounding Work, I enjoyed it a lot!, See this channel for a lot of gaming videos, SEXY Movie clips, channel link, you can try:)

  • I’m a hook grip user myself, and i see that you use hook grip for almost everything. That might not be bad at all, but when this happened, although your hook grip might feel okay it might be a little torn out from all the reps. Usually i use straps for the sets where I’m above 4 reps and actually when I know I’m going for a PR that day, I use straps in my warm up sets all the way up till the last 2 or 3 sets leading up to the PR. That’s just what I do, hope it helps:D

  • I’ve been lifting for between 3 to 4 years and I just 315 on bench and 500 on squat deadlift a month ago. My overhead press is 225.

    Granted I weigh more than Jeff and I’m a little bit taller, but still. What gives? His bench is so high and he’s been lifting a lot longer and being more strict with programming and diet.

  • Thank you for your video, normally I do them at the end of my program and feel like I am already warmed up. For some reason last month that wasn’t the case and it was hard to reach the floor just after being in the gym haha this is going to help me.


  • Never had an issue with hook grip on any rep or load. I let the bar hang down into my fingers, instead of squeezing it tight into my palm. I just let the bar go to the place it naturally wants to roll down to, and then I lock in that hook grip’s fangs on the bar.

  • As a dude with long hair, I never lift with it down or in a ponytail, get something to push it up above your shoulders or at least just a man bun

  • she using straps, that clearly means she is deficient in grip strength, she failed a COC 0.5 which is another sign she needs grip work. impressive hamstring strength for sure.

  • Yo Omar TF bro you look and clarence colibe and the thing is you both look like papa franku you 3 should make a video together and teach our sensei papa franku how to perform powerlifting movements and weightlifting movements I would pay for this to happen DO IT

  • is the tear on the boney part of your thumb? Is that part of your thumb actively pulling when you hook grip? I watched a video about doing the hook grip where only the fatty part of the thumb (the first segment of the thumb finger) is the only part of the thumb that is actually gripping the bar. The video is “PainLESS hookgrip” by Clint Darden.

  • Its a one time thing Omar! This has happened to myself, its the way you grip the bar…in this case you gripped the bar higher in your palm where the bar would roll it applied a large shear force lower down your thumb as a result ripped away the callus/skin

  • I was wondering if there’s any additional exercises you would suggest if we are sumo deadlifting. I follow your squat warm up routine with a few additional movements for the hips for now.

  • I can’t wrap my head around how his body is shaped lol long skinny arms, super wide shoulders, muscular chest shoulders and back with skinny bird legs

  • That’s why I was always skeptical about this hook grip. My working weights are around your PRs so switching to it is already a problem so I never bothered. Looks like for a good reason.

  • hook grip is great but often I see guys tearing skin using hook. In a lot of videos, guy use straps on initial lifts leading upto their PR lift. They say “we are saving the skin for the final lift”. Which made me to believe that doing more reps with heavier weight takes a lot of toll on the thumbs using the hook grip.

  • Ive been powerlifting for 4 years now and i found that the best warm up before deadlifts is the whole workout first. i always start with rows, t bar rows and barbell rows as basic warm up exercises and leave the bench and deadlifts last. every time i did my deadlifts at the start i couldnt perform the rest of my workout efficiently but when i switched deadlifts in the end i executed them more efficiently. just before my deadlifts though i perform single leg reverse kettlebell lunges and that completely transformed my deadlifts. i read one of your books about squatting, i changed my foot placement and its all perfect now. youre the man.

  • Did the thumb open at the top or after the decent cause your decent speed compared to your 8 rep was alot faster. Maybe the skin nipped when hitting the floor

  • Omar, I noticed your shoulders and arms have gotten much much better in the past 2 years or so. As someone who is also torso dominant can you give us some tips or even small stuff you did to make them grow?

  • Very nicely done warm-up video! A lot of these exercises I do already! I recently featured your channel on my much smaller channel. If you have the time I would like for you to come to watch it and tell me what you thoughts in my comments section.

  • Is there a reason why you dont tape your thumbs when you are doing hookgrip while lifting heavy weights? I see alot of the toplevel weightlifters do this aswell

  • HOW do you get strong like that though?????????? I’ve been stuck on 195kg for months and instead of getting stronger I get weaker. Tried everything.

  • When Cailer takes his shirt off and turns his back on you, you definitely see he is definitely a good deadlifter. There’s a serious muscle shield there.

  • i had the same thing when holding my max for 10 seconds with hook (220kg). Just started hook for 2 weeks so i had a callus with free space underneath that ripped. So i think the callus was already somewhat loose?

  • 600lb by the end of the year? Hmm, lets see who gets it first I just did 550 on half an hour of sleep and after squatting to 420lb yesterday, and block pulled (just under the knees) 617lb while fresher (but still post squat sesh) so I have a feeling I can make it hey…

  • Omar how did u reprogram after Injury I had a lower back injury that set me backs years and still suffer minor to moderate nerve pain from left lower butt back of leg (not sciatica) mostly from improper pasture. I worked around it and my max also 585 I took a hiatus and lost strength but Idk where to start off my cardio shit and my other lifts down mostly my bench. Plz help

  • Sorry,but all serious deadlifters out there know that first thing you do is,,,,,,,taking your shoes of. Never ever do deadlifts with shoes. Its making you unbalanced and shifting your load forwards and making your back work unbalanced. Sorry,but hard to take this seriously.

  • The McGill Big 3 has worked super well for me in my deadlifts and squats. I can see how this warmup routine will add on to that even more. Thanks love the videos and the podcasts, the last one with Chris Duffin was one of my favorites!!

  • Clickbaited me with the 340/750 on the bar lol. Even more deceiving that they are red 20’s and not 25’s. Still great lifts! Congrats!

  • Jeff you’re pretty strong for your weight don’t ruin a BP clip by showing form like that. I hope that part was meant as a joke….

  • Here’s my warmup.

    10 min stairmaster.
    5×10 hyper extensions
    5 x 1 min planks
    Stretch legs then some upper body


    Then go deadlift

  • I am always nervous and scared before leg day and some times i skip it
    Also should just have some heavy days and some light days
    Or always 12 rep max more like take like five breaths after 5 reps for every rest of 2 reps i guess but it still counts cuz u can get muscle fatigued before the heart and lungs,
    Also i train about 2 times a week for legs

  • “Strongest lifters in world pull conventional”
    Well yes and no….
    Strongman are not allowed to pull sumo. So even if they were stronger at that it wouldn’t matter because it isn’t allowed.
    Secondly the strongest deadlifts in powerlifting are almost all sumo……

    So I don’t agree with your statement of them being similair.

  • I watched a video from 4 years ago that showed Jeff Cavalier casually deadlift 493 2 reps for his workout and say he wasn’t feeling good that day.

  • It’s my gratitude to thank you so much for the aspiring video and to respond my request Doctor. I really appreciate your support Doctor. Thanks!

  • Out for 16 months b/c of an injury? Was that the SI joint deal? That scares me. I have had SI problems ever since coming back from Airborne training, which was in August. I haven’t been able to do anything that puts pressure on the lower back since (squats, DL, cleans, etc.) I have been feeling good not lifting, but every time I load weight on my back or in a front rack position, I def. feel it in my lower back, so I take it easy. Am I going to be a year + out from fully recovering?

  • Whenever I put 445 on the bench it gets in my head, I have done 465 but in the past two years anytime I put 445 on the bar I get nervous and lose all technique.

  • #SquatulUclub

    Excellent video, will be implementing these as part of my DL warm up to help improve my mobility. Definitely something I need to improve on before pushing much further.

  • You talk about being very comp specific during the offseason, how comp specific do you believe the ssb is in regards to improving low bar squat? I would love to add it in as a “squat day” in my training?

  • Ya dirty sumo cheater! Already short, and ya gotta throw it in us tall guys faces and cheat with sumo! Just messing, nice pull man, technique was solid, sometimes you gotta call it at that especially if you felt good doing it and might lose position with a higher weight.

  • You’re doing sumo which shortens your range of motion. You’re already what 5’4 5’5 at most? Lol short arms even more of a shorter range of motion. I think you should do conventional more as a better test of deadlift strength because really dude your range of motion is so short that matters so much it really does so you are getting away with a considerable amount of weight. Conventional FTW!!!!

  • I saw an experiment on the Science Channel about how much pressure it would take to break a workout bar. They put almost 2000 pounds of pressure on it before it broke. So these people must be using Chinese made bars or something

  • Jeff: I left it at 485 deadlift because 500 is an arbitrary number
    Also Jeff: I want to hit a 405 squat because it’s not an arbitrary number

  • Heels need to be down and stay down in the IPF. Not even a little bit of movement off the floor.
    It’s a stupid rule that doesn’t really do much but it’s there.

    In most other feds, no one cares.

  • Is weighing 155lbs with a 405lbs deadlift with three months of powerlifting training any good? I’m 6’1 and deadlift sumo, no wrist wraps or chalk. I get a lot of looks in the gym when I approach a bar in the gym to squat, deadlift or bench. I don’t have much muscle mass but I’ve always been rather strong despite my size. Deadlifting is really easy for me because I have long arms but this affects my bench because I have to move the weight so far. I also have really long legs. I have a shitty bench (270lbs) and squat (315lbs).

  • None of this is specific to the actual fucking deadlift. Do a couple reps with 45s or less on each side every minute on the minute for as long as you need to in order to feel “warmed up”. That’s it. All of this is silly bullshit is a complete waste of time.

  • I thought your decent was too fast, sure wasn’t too slow good lord. you could have gotten 450 no problem if you slowed it down more

  • Straight up, guy doesn’t have the size to pull 500kg. And given his conditioning, he never will. Also, keep in mind, Eddie had a brain bleed after doing his.

  • Hey squat university, I have been doing deadlifts again after rehabbing from a lower back injury from half a year ago (I am actually stronger now than before the injury lol), but as I have been doing my deadlifts, everything feels perfect while doing the sets, CNS is firing properly, everything is tight. But after I am done with the set and especially at home, I start feeling some tailbone pain like I fel on it or something, it goes away after 1 or 2 days but then comes back when I do my deadlifts.

    Is there a mobility problem, a weakness somewhere? Are my squats not on point (I do squats 3 times per week for 3×5) (the squats feel strong and powerfull) Please help my out here, I am starting to get concerned:(

  • Good to only go to 485 on the deadlift, would’ve probably waited longer since the injury but focus on deadlifts a little bit more for maybe a slightly higher PR

  • Man seeing all these comments �� this guys is a Physical therapist and he has talked to Olympic athletes first hand I think he knows what he is taking about and if you listen to his podcast it’s clear he knows what he is talking about lol not only that if your body doesn’t have a full range of motion it isn’t going to fire correctly and other muscles will compensate hence the mobility work and in his podcast he talked about athletes failing a lift because their coordination gives out(muscles failing to fire in the correct portion of the lift ) before the specific muscle being worked fails so workouts that improve coordination are really going to help your muscles fire in the correct pattern making the movement easier. Anyways I appreciate your content a lot I just found your podcast and I listen to it while I delivery pizza lol I’m a certified personal trainer and I’m trying to learn as much as I can before practicing on clients lol Nasm only goes over so much. Keep doing your thing man ����

  • Not everyone is going to be this big refrigerator dude there’s this guy I call him my uncle and he weighed 185 he benched 485 squated between 7-900 lbs and deadlifted that at 185 bodyweight most people can’t do that

  • It’s absolutely brutal, but I don’t think she weighs 123 pounds. I think she weighs about 140-150 pounds; her complexion is robust, although she was short, she doesn’t weigh less than 140 pounds. Still it is absolutely amazing.

  • I have to say, Omar, the way you reacted so quickly and overcame the tear is highly commendable. Most people would have taken a step back, looked at the tear or even carried on lifting with hookgrip exacerbating the tear even more. Props to you! And give me some damn weightlifting content!!!

  • Hi Doc, do you have any content yet on the best daily stretches / movements for sedentary office workers? Something to combat the negative effects of sitting? Thank you so much.

  • Making simple complex, there is so much kinesiologysts today that over-analize, go so much in the detail that they don’t see big picture.
    Not to mention giving people kinesiphobia, but that’s brilliant bussines model every person have dissbalance or pain of some sort, EVERY, tell them they have it with serious face, tell them they need to start going to physio-teraphy if they want to walk in 10 years and they will go.
    Speaking from my personal experience, fitness today is about giving people kinesyphobia and scaring them they will have big troubles in their life because their back hurts a little (so that they can charge money for therapies).

  • If I ever become a manager and she is angry and wants to talk to me for a problem with a a product or service we provided her, I am quitting my job immediately and running home, then I lock the doors up and I survive with my dog and both of us eating canned dogfood in the basement for a month. Then I will eventually return to the surface world but with caution and hope that she is not still looking for me.

  • Everytime I watch this guy lift I am astonished at how he weighs so little and looks so jacked (yes i know hes short) and now I am also astonished at how fucking strong he is, jesus.

  • It’s amazing how much this woman’s facial structure has changed from then till now, which is approximately 2 years. I used to find her extremely attractive with a good balance between muscle definition and feminine features. Now, not so much.

  • At first I thought: “pshh that’s only half of eddie hall’s record”
    Then I realized: shes only a third of his weight

    tfw she’s lifting more pound-for-pound than the worlds strongest man

  • What is with all the fucktards setting the stops so low? Where did this lack of respect for gravity come from??? I never did a squat heavy in a cage that didn’t have them set to just a couple inches below the bottom of the descent.


  • Watching this gave me chills! I hit my max deadlift yesterday of 235! I weigh 143. Someday I’ll hopefully be where you are! Keep it up!!

  • Omar can you please tell me what weightlifting belt you’re using this video, or one that you have been using these days? i want to buy my first weightlifting belt, but I want to buy a belt that I could use for both weightlifting and powerlifting and not a super wide one that could be good for powerlifting but not olympic weightlifting.

    Thanks for the great info and videos these days!

  • She is suppose to be one the strongest deadlifters why is she using straps? I know that it’s over 500lbs. she needs to work on her grip, straps makes a big difference than w/o them. This is by no means being a hater its just my opinion.
