Comments:

* I made 2 attempts and both times was able to break the weight free from the ground. I am going to have to learn how to round the back while I deadlift again since I haven’t done this movement on a regular basis in a long time. I have been doing a clean deadlift and Romain dealift in which the back is kept straight which is more safe for the back but doesn’t allow you to handle the same amount of weight as you can when you round your back.
