Yeah thats what I am saying, its on a lever so its a guesstimate to how heavy it really is I find a starting point and just work on getting better from there and don't worry about what weight it says it will be on the contest for events that are on a lever. How I train all my online clients when they have car deadlift, viking press, etc it seems to work well.

Sounds like a solid plan. Should I shoot for a number of reps before adding weight, or just go up every week? And would you jump up 5 or 10lbs, or more?

Work up to a "heavy 3" on week 1 to establish a rough max estimate

week 2 follow standard 5/3/1 style progressions

Love training it like this
