Two comments:

at age 27, a lot more things about me were explosive! At age 45, things have a slower rhythm...

Seriously, the 2nd pull was as explosive as I think it can be when one is maxing out. I came up on my toes, etc. I thought the point was not to yank the bar off the ground. It came up slowly and steadily and accelerating until I had it to the belly button.

1. Apologies for mistyping your name

2. your comment was

"Clean Pull: 160
Deadlift: ? what's the difference with a clean pull?"

The difference is in the explosive nature of the second pull and the end position.

Deadlift - Slow off the floor, not much faster above the knee, feet remain flat and there is no shrug.

Clean pull - slow off the floor, maximal acceleration from just below the knee, up on the toes with a big shrug.

If you can get 160 to the top of a clean pull then the chances are you could deadlift significantly more.

Also, Yoon and I are going to a meet Sunday so expect increases in our lifts.
I talked the talk but did not walk the walk. Only made 80 and 100, my openers, to match my old best total.

Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen! Once I hit 40 or 50 observations I will do look into the data. All records are collected in a database, I just need the time to look into it in detail, which may take a few days or weeks, depending on my free time at hand...
