As a lot of you guys know, my deadlift sucks bad. 355 was my last deadlift PR and 345 was my last squat PR.
I feel like I need to deadlift more often. My deadlift training goes in three waves:
Wave 1 is four weeks at 3x5
Wave 2 is four weeks at 3x3
Wave 3 is four weeks at 5x1 (usually I knock out as many of these reps as I can in one set then finish with the singles I have left.)
My squat training is the same except it goes 3x8, 3x5, 3x3. I dropped the reps on the deadlift to focus on technique.
My workouts look like this:
Klokov press (right now)
So to add more volume, how should I go about it? Backoff sets on the deadlift? An extra deadlift day?
Here's what I've come up with as far as options so far.
1) Backoff deadlift sets
2) Change the program to something like 5x5, 5x3, 10x1.
3) Use the squat template (don't like the sets of 8 but it won't kill me)
4) Run 2 deadlift days and 2 squat days per week (2 main lifts per session, squat+bench and probably deadlift+overhead) like a push-pull-squat layout.
