Hey Mr. Wendler,
I know you say that your grip strength improved greatly when you started training the deadlift for reps, but I have made good progress training the deadlift exclusively with singles. Also, I have injured my back training the deadlift for reps. I have just begun following your program, and I am following the BBB variation just like you have it laid out, but eventually I would like to try replacing the deadlift sets with singles. What do you think would be a good way to do this? My thought is this:
Week 1- 9 singles at 75% of TM
Week 2- 7 singles at 80% of TM
Week 3- 5 singles at 85% of TM
Deload- 10 singles at 70% of TM
Does this sound good? If not, how would you adjust it?
