Ep 91: How to Hit a 100 lbs Deadlift PR in 12 Weeks with Ian Titus

Do you have a hard time separating pain and performance? Both can be extremely tricky to navigate, particularly when you’re trying to crush your performance without also crushing your back, hips, knees, etc. This is why I wanted to bring Ian Titus, a rock star client of Rebel Performance, on to discuss how we got his performance skyrocketing while staying pain-free.

Not too long ago, Ian set a goal for himself to hit a 500 lb deadlift before he was 50 years old; however, he couldn’t quite master the most important part – adding weight to the bar. What kept stopping him was the excruciating back pain he would get each time he would lift the bar. That’s when Ian decided it was time for a change and joined the Rebel fam. Fast forward to 12 weeks later, and Ian just smashed a massive 100+ lb deadlift PR of 560 lbs, 100% pain-free.

This episode is all about Ian and I unpacking the exact steps we followed to make it happen. The two of us dive into the importance of having somebody else program for you, the implements and exercise selection you should choose and why utilizing different training phases is good for your training. Listen in to discover how you can PR your deadlift by 100 lbs in just 12 weeks, while still feeling your absolute best.
