That is a good healthy protein intake if you are lifting weights.

Much of my protein comes from shakes as i dont want the calories. Getting rid of the last stubborn bits of fat.

Just my crippled old man stuff.  I do like protein shakes though.  Max two 25 gram protein scoops a day - afraid I might irritate my stomach.  GNC Pure isolate micro-filtered whey protein isolate chocolate frosting - hope nothing toxic in this - heavy metals?  I looked up each ingredient and it looks like all are okay.

I tend to go for the Isolate as it is usually lower carbs, however many sellers seem to use the word isolate to bump up the cost.
I am currently on about 250 grms of protein per day, 100 of which come from shakes.

Done incorrectly, there are all kinds of dangers.
You will note my loss of form on the 3rd rep. That is why i was not asked for a 4th and why these types of lifts should be supervized.
Inhope to post a video of a 500 in due course.

Wow, that's an awesome dead lift, and you're doing it raw, no compression shirt or straps.

I see you use the alternate grip.  When I did dead lifts last I went to a hook grip or the weight would just roll out of my hands.  No more weights for me, but I do chin-ups and dips with a light weight on my belt (to make up for the fat I've lost).

I think if I were going to do a lot of dead lifting for my health now I'd buy a trap bar.  The US army is using that in their new Combat Fitness Test and it looks a lot safer for someone not skilled in the fine points of form.  Some of the other new test events look a little less safe, you should youtube it.  (ACFT)

The trap bar allows one to take pressure off the lower back, so i guess it is safer.

Sure good for them glutes.

So, Thal, serious question.  How do you push things when you don't feel like it?

I'm thinking the answer is to wait, heal up, stretch/massage things out, still do something but not the max weight, and then.... probably start building up from a lower weight I guess.  Agree?

Depends why you dont feel like it old chap.

If i wake up tired but otherwise OK, i drag myself to the gym.

If i have pain or injury, then what you suggested.
