    Just started to try these out, what percentage of my normal deadlift should i be able to lift with these?

    Cheers

    Everyone will have a different take on this since some find it harder than others, I ususally see around about 25 – 30% less weight being used on the snatch grip deadlift than the clean grip deadlift, but it is essentially trial and error, I have switched to a trap bar deadift for a few cycles of variation and first workout I was at 85% of my clean grip deadlift weight of the week before, ashley

    I agree with Ash, I personally would be looking at about 40-50% less because of the terrible leverage it creates with my body type. Very underrated exercise.

    Another great variation is the Snatch Grip Deadlift standing on a 50kg plate or 50mm Block.

    Along the same lines roughly what percentage of your max squat would be your max for a split squat, and what would it be for goodmornings. I read somewhere that dave tate said that a goodmorning should be around 60% of your max back squat. Has anyone found this accurate?

    Cheers

    Well that is a good question as with everyone there is some variations,
    but I have found Dave Tate’s assessment to be high for most rugby
    players although I have had a few that are 200kg back squatters who can
    good morning 120kg, split squat I would put at around 60% of back squat,
    cheers, ash

    thanks for the reply, just to clarify this is split squat both feet on floor apposed to the back foot elevated

    Also, i’ve found that i can goodmorning alot more weight after having done heavy back/box squats. Has anybody else found this, is it due to the same principal of holding a weight larger than your max before doing a work set?

    Hey there well a split squat is basically a static lunge position feet
    split forward and back, whereas the Sprinters or Bulgarian Squat is with
    the rear leg raised on a box, possibly the heavy box squats first have
    acted as a neuro primer and you can work heavier on the good morning
    because of a more arounsed neuro muscular activation, cheers,ash
