Eric Lilliebridge – 381kgs/840lbs Raw Beltless Deadlift off a 2 inch deficit PR
This is the most I’ve ever pulled without a belt and also off of a deficit. I ended up doing 2 sets with 840lbs because I missed the first one at the top. As I was warming up, I could feel there was something slippery on the bar, but I didn’t really think anything of it. I just chalked my hands good and it worked fine up until my last warm up. When I tried 840lbs the first time, it blew right out of my hands at the top. So I had my dad clean and wipe down the bar good and I re tried it again shortly after and ended up pulling it faster and easier than the first try. Felt like I probably could have gotten 850 for this training session, but I was very happy to come back and make the lift after missing it the first time. After this training session though I’m now curious to see what I can pull off the floor without a belt since I’ve never tried before. So I will probably try a heavy beltless single off the floor in a couple weeks. Anything over 840lbs will be a PR Beltless.
