Pause Deadlift Standards

Measured in lb

Pause deadlift strength standards help you to compare your one-rep max lift with other lifters at your bodyweight.

Our pause deadlift standards are new and we will be refining them over the next six months as we collect more data from lifters using Strength Level.
