Video: Axle Deadlifts up to 545lbs - Pretty much the complete opposite of a DL bar..

Last Wednesday for Event Day we did Axle Deadlifts up to 545lbs, followed by several sets of Farmer’s Walks w. 220lbs per hand. Definitely a different feel on starting the pull with the axle not having any bend/whip. I also took 565 and missed at lockout, before realizing that in Strongman I'm allowed to ramp/hitch the bar..

I'm going to start doing more Farmers Walks on the weekends (and heavy) to work on improving that as well - Chipping away...
