Looking for some advice. I’m trying to increase my deadlift. I’ve done 505, nothing great by any means. I’m 48 and played rugby for years. Retired from it at 43 and decided to get serious about my lifting. Lifting is something I feel I can do well into my 60’s, and it is a competitive outlet.
I’ve been stuck around 500 pounds for some time now. I’ve done a number of things to increase my core, lower back, and leg strength (Westside Protocal); however, I just can’t seem to jack my deadlift. I can do standing Good Mornings up to 315 pounds for a set of three reps. I can squat 500 parallel (everything is raw). Lately I’ve done a lot of single leg action like the Bulgarian Squats, straight leg deadlifts, etc.
I know there are folks out there who have been there and done that with similar problems. I’d be very interested and appreciative in anyone’s advice.
Thanks in advance…
