Oh wow.  So you've gone back about 40lbs or so.  I'm sure if you put more focus on the deadlift, you will regain that strength back.

It has been my main focus for the entirety of the 2010 decade, but currently doing 100+ reps a week of pulling so hopefully things will start to click.  2014 was a bad year for the deadlift.  I pulled 555 raw and 580 in gear in 2013, just happened to miss critical attempts in 2014

The vast majority of my focus is on deadlift, so I am doing 1 light session of squats a week only.  Today though decided to go a little heavier.  This is my first time doing 2.5x BW for multiple reps in just wraps.  Not an absolute PR, but I have lost 5kg

I know I do not post much training detail in my log these days, because I am being coached and not doing my own programming.

But I have been unable to bench properly since early December and have learned that I have some structural issues with my chest occurring.  Despite having a big/strong back and rear deltoids they are apparently pretty loose and causing my chest musculature to tighten up which is why I am getting a popping sensation during all benches.  This I think will be an issue for a long time.

Can add lower back to list of quasi-injuries.  2015 has been brutal so far. 

Sumo and a conventional variation on Monday
200 or more for 40 working reps.
Felt fine during workout, hurt bad about 5 hours later.

Hopefully taking it easy this week will put me ready to go next week

It has been a while... my current schedule and injuries prevented me from training with a high volume approach this past season.  Still managed a total PR at nationals though.  Am thinking maybe I should re-evaluate my overall training ideology

Here is my training cycle's main equipped lifts.  It was close to the most total reps and volume I have done in my gear, but overall the lifts are way down because (due to the injuries) I did almost zero raw work

Then here is nationals

Is it poor grip strength or just no power in the last deadlift? Looks like you get it easy from the floor?

Congratz with PR!

I wouldn't say it was weak grip.  I pulled 265 without chalk on a smooth bar during the training cycle, but pulling on Eleiko bars really challenges me.  Needless to say this will be another year where deadlift is my main priority

Its just thicker and stiffer... I don't know why that makes it so I can pull less, because I don't lose grip on it but it forces me into bad position... maybe it is just nerves because I only ever have this issue when I'm pretty excited on a big pull at a big meet
