Ok, so the training cycle before this last one, I hammered the shit out of romanian deadlifts (as a supplemental exercise in a westside template) and it put 35 pounds on my squat, and 55 pounds on my deadlift.
So I switched up the rep ranges and hammered the shit out of romanian deadlits in the same manner this cycle and it put 40 pounds on my squat this time around but I wasn't even able to hit my PR from last cycle of 500 lbs.
I deadlift conventional and I'm just barely able to pop the weight off the floor. The only thing I noticed about this training cycle was that I didn't do as much quad work this cycle as I did in the last one and I think weak quads might be responsible for me not being able to get the weight off the floor. My posterior chain is obviously stronger because I hit a rather large PR in the squat.
Anyone suspect that my quads might be holding me back?
