3s Pro + Rep PRs for Deadlifts


#1

What do you think of using 3s progression for the first 2 sets on deadlifts, but still going for rep records on the third set? This way you can still have fun and train grip on the third set, but you have less volume and fatigue on the first 2 sets. Good idea or bad idea?

I only would do this if you are either horribly out of shape, lifting some serious weight or are hurt in some way. I’d rather have your body adapt.

Thank you for the response. I’ll definitely wait until I’m deadlifting over 500 pounds for reps before I try this out. I’ve been doing good with the regular rep prs format so far.
