So I started doing dead lifting this week...since Im tall and a beginner Im using a trap bar so I don't tear my back up..whats a good starting point to do sets with? I started with body weight and I was able to do 8 reps easy. I bumped up to 260lbs and it was still fairly easy but I had some soreness the next day...2 days later (today) I started with 1X6 @ 260 and worked up to 2X3 @ 310..should I lower the weight and do more reps/sets? I feel like I could probably max around 350 is this respectable for a beginner at a body weight of 240?
I appreciate your input
