I was reading CT’s setup in his “Deadlift: Friend or Foe” article and was curious if a similar approach could be taken for the SG High Pull? I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be a good idea? Thoughts?

Just for reference, the split was as follows:

Here is the cycle I use… it is a 4 days cycle (so 4 days per week):

DAY 1. 60% of your max for 10 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 2. 60% of your max for 13 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 3: 60% of your max for 15 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 4. 60% + 40lbs for 10 sets of 1 done as fast as possible

Then restart the cycle with 20lbs more… so it would look like:

DAY 1. 60% of your max + 20lbs for 10 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 2. 60% of your max + 20lbs for 13 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 3: 60% of your max + 20lbs for 15 sets of 2 done as fast as possible

DAY 4. 60% + 60lbs for 10 sets of 1 done as fast as possible

You keep going until you start to have a form breakdown, this is normally after 3-4 cycles (some will extend it to 5-6) after that you stop deadlifting for a week, retest your max and start a new cycle.
