Big increase in a year, well done fella! Do you still do any pulling "traditional" style, if so what's the differance in your max?

No, but i do SLDs cycling chains, bands and straight weight and that makes my LO super strong. For bottom power I do box squats and that is pretty much the only tools I use for my deadlift. Im not too sure what the differece would be in max.. Im guessing 50-70 lbs though

Although I can't see the video (blocked @ work), 520 is a big pull. Nice work.

How are your joints holding up at this point? Since you've gone from 290 a year ago till now. Anything changed recup wise? Be it icing or mssage or heat or triflex.

Joints are fine Ironman. Never had a problem with them.

Nice pull, you look like you've got good technique for sumo.

I find breaking the bar is the hardest part of that lift, if it moves even an inch it's going to get locked out - I noticed you dipped down and kept your torso more upright which when I've tried it makes the initial pull from the floor even harder. Any suggestions on making that first inch easier? I've been pulling sumo for a couple of months now as I find it doesnt irritate my injuries much, if at all

If you're weak off the bottom box squats will fix it right away. Also, what screwed up the bottom for me was forgetting to flare my knees . Speed work can help too. othern than that box squats and SLDLs w/ chains/str8 weight and bands took it up 50 lbs in like 8 weeks or so
