I want to retest my DL 1RM this Friday. Last best single was an even 500lbs w/ double overhand hook grip + chalk. (About 4 months ago)
It wasn’t a total max attempt, probably 95% of max.
I have been training DL in my HP Mass routine usually 3x / week at 80% 3RM calculated at 475.
Today I worked up to 415, most days I just go up to 395 (started at 375 3 months ago). 400 comes off the ground very well, especially on 2nd rep - I do dead stop at bottom.
Could you advise for Wednesday’s session and then Friday’s max attempt day please?
I have been training double overhand with straps since so frequent - does it take much away from the lift if I do max single with straps?
Not doubting I can hold on to 515 or 525 with hook grip - but, would like your point of view.
