I never even attempted a deadlift until 4 months ago. Now, I look forward to deadlift day. I can't believe how weak I was at first. I even strained my lower back the second time I deadlifted, when I attemped 155, lol. Here is my progress so far. Very first deadlift workout: 95x5, 115x5, 135x5. This week's workout: 135x6, 155x6, 205x3, 225x3, 245x2. I weigh 145. My bench was more than my pull when I started 135 seemed so heavy that first time; now it feels like nothing. I can't wait until I can pull 300+!! Should be getting that in less than a month. All with double overhand grip.
