Stephanie Sanzo showed off her deadlifting prowess in the most recent clip on her Instagram page.
Dressed in a loose-fitting black longsleeved crop top and matching pants, the Australian fitness trainer assumed a wide-legged stance at the beginning of the video. Then she leaned her torso forward to pick up the barbell in front of her with an underhanded grip on one side and an overhanded one on the other. After that, she straightened her knees and lifted the weight with a grimace. After she lowered the barbell, Stephanie repeated the move six times before the video ended.
In her caption, Stephanie answered fans’ questions about the amount of weight one should use during a deadlift. Writing that the weight should change from session to session, she shared that her barbell was 330 pounds during a deadlift session three weeks ago. That changed to 352 pounds during week two and then she lifted 308 pounds on week three.
Adding variety to your barbell weight rep ranges helps to ensure that your body doesn’t plateau, she added.

How much weight should you lift ?? ???? A simple recommendation would be to “never lift the same weight that you did in your previous session” ???? For example – this was my last 3 weeks of deadlifts… Week 1: 150kg / 330lb x 5 Week 2: 160kg / 352lb x 3 (+10kg / 22lb) Week 3: 140kg / 308lb x 6 (-20kg / 44lb) (Today was Week 3) Varying your rep ranges and your weight ranges is so important in order to stimulate the body in a variety of different ways which is essential to make sure your body doesn’t plateau or accomodate to your training ???? #powerlift #sumodeadlift #powerliftingwomen
