Yesterday I pulled 435 with 4 heavy 5/8" chains, roughly 500lbs at the top. Any big deadlifters in here?

I can really only think of cable resistance exercises and 6 inch killers, but those don't really isolate your hips.

Best thing you can do for hip explosion is cleans from a hang. Don't shrug the bar off the bat. Drop your hips a few inches and use hip explosion to get the bar moving, then follow through with the traps after full hip extension. Keep the weight light until you find a good groove.

Not even close to that.. I think max I do is 350lbs..
Do love deadlift but it isn't a huge focus at the moment. Don't want to go too heavy and hurt my back in rugby season.

Whatever, you'll feel like an idiot when it gets you nowhere. For your own sake, seriously consider what I said in my previous post- i'm qualified to give this kind of advice.

This is where I was about seven months ago at 176lbs. I'm currently 210lbs, cutting down to a similar bodyfat%. I should be there at 195-200lbs.
I don't feel like an idiot.

Even female bodybuilders tend not to be particularly muscular, due to much lower levels of testosterone. So long as you maintain a healthy amount of body fat, you shouldn't become ripped or anything.
I would, however, recommend building muscle in certain areas, particularly legs. Increased muscularity in the lower body can help create disparity between the two halves, making your upper body appear slimmer by contrast.

Deadlift for the booty, squats for quads, calf raises for calves (lol), etc. Lunges and whatnot aren't a bad idea, either.

Don't worry about becoming too muscular. If it were that easy, every guy would be buff!
