Ok so did my first dead lift session on this program today. I worked off 90% of my max to get the numbers. This had me pulling 395 for 5 as my top set. I had planned to get 7-8 reps like I had done for bench and military press so far. Not so.
I only managed 3 reps! This is from a dead stop mind you. I pulled 518 only a couple weeks ago for 1 rep.
Does anyone else find it hard to go over say, 3 reps on the deadlift?
I guess in the past I have only done either very heavy singles/doubles or weights closer to 60% for higher reps.
Not sure what to do. Should I lower my max down to say 440, then plug the numbers? Or just do like what I did today and do 2 sets of 3 on my top set?
Does anyone else have great disparity between their max dead lift and reps?
On a side note, I did the Boring But Big and it was brutal but I enjoyed it.
