Hey guys, i’m not a competitive powerlifter but i am looking to bring up my lifts. I am currently squatting and deadlifting once a week (sometimes even squatting twice a week) and i have been seeing linear progression in weight everytime i go in. Obviously this is fun to see and super motivating but i’m pretty sure that the linear progression is coming to a hault and i am curious about how often i should max out on deadlift after i am no longer setting PR’s each session.
I have been adding atleast 10 pounds a week to my deadlift up until last week when i got 455 for a single. This week i went for a max single again (maybe a bad idea) and the 455 felt just as heavy as last time/ no PR. Maybe i just had a bad day or maybe i am burning myself out but any thoughts and personal experience concerning the deadlift that can be shared would be greatly appreciated. (PS. i have no access to bands)
