Off The Floor: A Manual for Deadlift Domination
David Dellanave has been featured in:
My name is David Dellanave and just a few years ago I was a pretty average lifter. My deadlift numbers were stuck and didn’t seem to be going up at all.
And it’s not like I wasn’t trying – in fact, TRYING was all I did! I tried every single deadlift program under the sun, religiously following the instructions, just hoping to get a little stronger, a little bigger, a little better. I tried…
But no matter what I tried, I would always just end up injured and in the same place that I was before. I always thought I was making a little bit of progress, but then I would end up “tweaking” something and my progress was immediately STOPPED.
I went on this “roller coaster” for a number of years before stumbling upon a little known secret that skyrocketed my deadlift and my muscle gains…
This secret has allowed me to take my deadlift from 245 pounds to 605 pounds, and become a world record holder in my weight class for the deadlift (And in case you’re wondering, the secret I am talking about is NOT steroids. I am all natural and have the blood tests to prove it.)
I was asked to take a steroid test on the day I set my Jefferson Deadlift World Record.
And on top of that, as my deadlift numbers shot up, I started to pack on pounds and pounds of rock-solid muscle to all of my weakest body parts.
My arms, shoulders and back blew up practically overnight. I went from a skinny 168 pounds to a jacked 205 pounds and 10 percent body fat in the blink of an eye.
Since then I’ve achieved triple-bodyweight deadlifts in four variations and gone over a thousand pounds in partial-range deadlifts. I can deadlift 365 pounds with one hand or one leg. I’ve pulled 225 pounds for 50 reps in under a minute. My training logs track over 30 variations of deadlifts, and I sometimes deadlift five days per week. I’ve never been beaten in a deadlift event in contest.
I’ve shared some of my deadlift secrets with major publications like T-Nation & Men’s Health, helping guys all over the world add pounds to their deadlift and mass to their frames.
And these miracle results haven’t just been a one-time thing. I’ve been able to replicate these shocking improvements with all of my male and female clients.
You see, in addition to my own lifting, I also run two gyms in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
And since discovering these deadlifting secrets, I’ve been able to skyrocket the deadlifts of “everyday” men and women in just a few weeks.
These men and women aren’t genetically gifted or even athletes for that matter. Most of them are between the ages of 20 and 60 and they work normal jobs while lifting with me just a few times each week.
The men continue to pack on more muscle in all of the toughest areas to get bigger in: Bigger shoulders, bigger backs and bigger arms start to pop up practically overnight.
And for the ladies, they can’t believe the difference in how much better their arms, legs and butts look after a few weeks using these deadlifting secrets.
Just take a look at some of the MASSIVE improvements I’ve helped lifters just like you make:
I spent a good deal of time chasing a double bodyweight deadlift, but when I finally got it, I got something else I wasn’t exactly going for-a nasty groin injury. This injury left me sidelined from not only deadlifts, but a host of other exercises, as well. As you can imagine, it was quite frustrating, and I gave up deadlifting for a long time. It wasn’t until lifting with David did I consider letting the deadlift back into my life. After introducing me to Biofeedback Testing, David suggested I switch from conventional to sumo, and although I was dubious, I eventually acquiesced. He adjusted my stance and gave me some pointers before sending me off to load the bar.
The result? A 10-pound deadlift PR in one day, after not deadlifting for about 6 months. I’ve since gone on to add 35 more pounds to my deadlift with no injuries, all thanks to Dave and his deadlift wisdom!
Several years ago, after buying and following a 90-day exercise program, I was left with significant shoulder pain that made it difficult for me to raise one of my arms over my head. Since I am a surgeon, I could not continue with this or any exercise regimen that had a significant chance for injury. I learned the biofeedback techniques and followed David Dellanave’s instruction and guidance, and began deadlifting. The first time I ever did a deadlift in my life was in October 2010, when I was almost 41 years old. I was deadlifting 135 pounds, and it was not pretty. I have continued to benefit from David’s guidance, and about four years later at the age of 44, I have a PR deadlift of 475
pounds. More importantly, I have not suffered any injuries. My goal is to deadlift more than 500 pounds, and with David’s program I am confident I will reach that goal, injury free.
David Dellanave is a world-class guy and trainer who personally took me under his wing and helped me tremendously. I don’t think I was sore once, I looked forward to the workouts immensely, and I noticed a huge difference in the way that I felt. My deadlift went from 280 pounds to 430 pounds (at 185 bodyweight) in less then two months. I went from doing a few full pull-ups to 18 strict pull-ups. I learned the hang clean and went from 135 to 205.
I came to Dave after almost two years of CrossFit, which resulted in three injuries and a deadlift stuck at 285 pounds for over 6 months. My sole goal when I first met Dave: deadlift 300 pounds. I spent the next two months walking into the gym and having Dave tell me to do something that I thought was impossible. Sure enough, just like that, my deadlift went from 285 pounds to over double bodyweight at 325 pounds.
My frustation with being stuck, injured and not making progress changed literally overnight, on a cold Saturday in the middle of a Minnesota winter. In circumstances reminiscent of a spy movie, I was introduced to something that I would never have believed if I didn’t experience it for myself. This was a moment like something out of The Matrix. Just like Neo, I was being offered two choices. I could either take the leap and see how deep the rabbit hole went, or wake up in my bed believing whatever I wanted to believe. Lucky for you and me, I took the red pill and my training changed forever.
I was invited to an exclusive underground seminar where experimental techniques were being discussed. These shadowy figures were on the very cutting edge of the science of training. And during this seminar, they demonstrated to me that there is a way to figure out exactly the type of training stimulus your body needs at any given time.
Imagine knowing without a shred of doubt the exact weight, the exact reps, and the exact sets you should use for optimal progress. Beyond that, this technique can also be used to help you train around injuries and keep making progress. (In fact, it can help you avoid injury or resolve existing injuries, too.)
I know, it sounds impossible. It sounds too good to be true; it even sounds like magic – but it’s not magic, it’s science.
The technique I learned at that underground seminar is all related to a little-known concept called Biofeedback Training.
Now, if you want the technical definition of biofeedback training, it’s:
“Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will.”
A more basic definition of Biofeedback Training is a method that collects information from the body, and then uses that information to teach the body how to perform more effectively.
At the time, Biofeedback Training sounded great in theory, but I was still skeptical. I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I hadn’t taken the plunge and tried it.
I saw the results for myself — and then again and again — with clients and others who had applied the principles. Using these Biofeedback Training principles I had learned, I was able to add almost 200 pounds to my deadlift in the first year alone. The next year was almost as impressive, adding another 150 pounds taking me all the way up to a 605-pound deadlift at a bodyweight of 185.
I don’t just help regular guys, though. Even best-selling authors like John Romaniello and seasoned fitness professionals like Bret Contreras call me when they want deadlift advice.
Within the highest-level circles of the fitness industry, my name is pretty much synonymous with the deadlift. Sure, my reputation is partly based on the impressive results I’ve produced for myself and my clients; but the real reason I’ve become so highly regarded is that I’ve made myself a student of the deadlift. I’ve studied classic powerlifters and strongmen from as far back as the 1800s, and in doing so, I’ve rediscovered many of their long-forgotten secrets. In fact, in recent years I’ve helped to revive old school deadlift variations and bring them back to the mainstream – helping people get stronger and pack on muscle like never before.
On a recent trip to New York City, I had the chance to hit the gym with my buddy John “Roman” Romaniello of Roman Fitness Systems. And although we were excited to train together, our session got off to a slow start…
Now, John’s no fitness slouch. He’s a best-selling author, a veteran of the fitness industry for over a decade and one of the biggest names in fitness right now. But, like anyone else, he’s human. Even fitness experts hit a rut — which is what happened to John. Not only had he hit a strength plateau, he’d been experiencing extreme pain in his low back. As a result, he’d basically given up deadlifts!
Because he’s my friend, I really wanted to help. Although I normally keep the recipe for my Secret Sauce close to the vest, I suggested he try some Biofeedback Training. When I explained it, he probably thought I was crazy…but he was desperate and willing to try anything. I coached him through the process, first testing his range of motion, then making adjustments and re-testing him.
In just 10 minutes, we figured out the exact stance he should be using for deadlifts, and the exact rep range he should be training with. Long story short, over the course of our session, John had an incredible first experience with Biofeedback Training. Not only was he able to pull more weight than he typically uses, it was the first time he was able to deadlift pain-free in almost 8 months!
In his words: “Mind. Blown.”
The funny thing is, over the course of our training session, John got angry with me. By the end, he was legitimately pissed off.
John wasn’t mad about his deadlift PR, he was mad that I hadn’t told him about Biofeedback Training before.
You see, I’ve kept mostly quiet about this information and these techniques over the past several years. While I was quietly using this information to train hundreds of clients at my gym, The Movement Minneapolis, for a long time I refused to share any of this information – even with my close friends. John couldn’t believe I was hoarding all this information about the deadlift – much less about the Biofeedback Training concept. He admonished me for it, and told me that I needed to write a book by the end of the summer because “it’s a book that needs to be written.”
After a few months of procrastinating, I set out to create the book John insisted I write. In the end, I wrote dozens of pages about the deadlift, including every variation you need to know about to level up your deadlift and put on massive slabs of thick muscle.
I compiled all of this information and organized it into a comprehensive program that I am excited to introduce. That program is Off The Floor: A Manual For Deadlift Domination.
Here are some of the secrets revealed in the program:
When I finished writing it, there was so much information that covered so many topics I knew I needed help making it more cohesive. In other words, I needed an editor – badly. Lucky for me, I happen to be marrying Ms. Jen Sinkler, one of the most badass fitness editors in the world. Upon reading it, she remarked, “You wrote fifty-freaking-three single-spaced, 12-point-font Word document pages about deadlifting. You’re insane.” “Insane” may be too strong a word, but it’s certainly not the worst thing I’ve been called. So, I took it as a compliment. The fact is, I simply love deadlifting, and I poured everything I have into the program. Jen was kind enough to edit it for me, and the final product is a tightly edited, beautifully photographed manual full of high-level information – a manual that you can download instantly right now.
And, to be quite honest, I wanted to make that knowledge more affordable.
When you pick up Off The Floor today you’re going to get an amazing amount of information for an unbelievably low price. But you’re not just going to get the manual. In the package, I’m going to include quite a bit more. In the 9-Component System you’ll also receive:
One thing I want to point out that is new since the very first release of Off The Floor in 2013: This book now includes 3 entirely new 8 to 12-week programs for a total of FOUR complete programs for beginner, intermediate, and advanced lifters as well as the original Off The Floor program which has put tens of thousands of pounds on the deadlifts of lifters in 2014. That’s right, you get four complete programs in one.
That’s less than the cost of a personal-training session at a run-of-the-mill commercial gym with a regular trainer who doesn’t have access to the information or experience that I do – and knows nothing about the deadlift or Biofeedback Training.
If you don’t want to get stronger, and you don’t want to be an impressive deadlifter, and you don’t want to pack on muscle then by all means do not buy Off The Floor. But if any of those things arent’t true then you can’t afford not to make the small investment.
Look, I’m going to guarantee you results because I believe it is my duty to deliver what I promise. If I am going to tell you that you are going to achieve massive improvements in your deadlift, I better deliver. Test drive this program, and if you’re not satisfied within the first 60 days (that’s two months!) you can get a full refund, and keep the information.
I’m offering this generous guarantee because I 100% believe in this manual, and I know you’re going to see amazing results with it.

P.P.S. Two months from now, are you going to be stuck in the same rut you’ve been in, or are you going to be throwing another four wheels on the bar for your deadlift sessions? Even worse, you could be not lifting at all because you got hurt following the usual deadlift advice. This is your chance to change that.
