Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Why Did My Deadlift Weight Drop Dramatically Today? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: At the gym tonight, and my deadlift weight just dropped. I was shocked, and totally let down. Especially because I was hoping to break a PB today. So, here's a little backround information... The last time I deadlifted was about 18,19 days ago. I'm a Marine so sometimes my schedule gets hectic and I can't afford to go to the gym.

    Why Did My Deadlift Weight Drop Dramatically Today?

    At the gym tonight, and my deadlift weight just dropped. I was shocked, and totally let down. Especially because I was hoping to break a PB today. So, here's a little backround information...

    The last time I deadlifted was about 18,19 days ago. I'm a Marine so sometimes my schedule gets hectic and I can't afford to go to the gym. However, I did have to other workouts in those 18 to 19 days that were back thickness workouts. T-bar rows and bent over db rows I believe.

    Also, I've cut out carbs completely during the week in order to try to slim down a bit. I'm still staying around the same weight.. but all my lifts are still increasing for the most part, so I'm content.

    Anyways, last time I hit 455x6, so tonight I was going for 485 and hoping to get 4 or 5. I only got 2, then I went down to 455 and only got 3. What gives? Do you think it's because I haven't hit them in almost 3 weeks, or because I've cut out the carbs? All my other lifts were fine.. what gives?

    I think it has to do with you cutting carbs plus dead lifting so high then jumping down you used a lot of energy up in your first attempt no big deal man still a good deadlift

    agree with this.
    on days i deadlift, of course i'm deadlifting less than you OP, but still relative for my size and goals...i try to eat a little more.

    deads, squats and cardio = eat a little more

    you should be stoked with your deadlift, that's REALLY STRONG!

    plus, there are subtle things that happen. not every session you'll go up in weight.

    keep it up, the next time you'll nail it!

    Less than peak days have to come. Otherwise you'd constantly keep progressing which just doesn't happen.
