At long last, I have deadlifted 200kg!
It’s not the greatest achievement ever, but it’s the next big milestone along my way to attempting to deadlift three times my own body weight (225kg).
You’ll notice a couple of plates underneath the bar; this is because the diameter of the Technogym 20kg plates is ridiculously small compared to Olympic 25kg plates. I have therefore started raising them off the ground slightly, to compensate for the extra range of motion that would otherwise make this lift much harder.
With it raised slightly off the ground and a little chalk on my hands, it went up quite easily really!
