Some more incredible numbers to ponder when we take a look at max weight for the Deadlift. For males, the competitor average is 454 pounds, with three athletes lifting over 600. Jerome Perryman is ranked number one in this category with 606lbs, while Lance Mosley is close with 601.

On the female side, the average is 273. Cyndi Frieling dominates this category with 365lbs. Caity Matter is next in line with 330.

Wow! Quite a few guys have at least a 3 times bodyweight deadlift.

i think 1rm deadlift will be the least predictive of the eventual winner. just too static of a lift. clean and jerk is a far more athletic movement.

When were all these stats given?

I don't feel like some of the lifts and times are current.

name, gender, age, height, weight, clean and jerk, Cindy, Fran, deadlift, 2007 games ranking (if applicable), and 2008 games ranking (if applicable).

Lots of variables to consider in predicting 2009 winners.

It is interesting how much less the max C&J is for many of these competitors. I speculate that those with the largest discrepancies have untapped potential in their Olympic lifts. If this is indeed the case, it's mind boggling to think what these athletes could achieve with more efficient technique, given that their improved O-lifting technique would improve so many other lifts, too.

1RM deadlift isn't that related to max C+J. The record holders for C+J do not deadlift a whole lot heavier than their max clean (e.g. they are not WR holders for deadlifts). It's more about speed strength/skill in the C+J versus pure brute strength in the deadlift.
