Hey I was wondering, I’ve been doing a lot of researching on the deadlifts and what works for most people. Seems like a lot of people get gains from pulling heavy off the floor once, maybe twice a month. Other work is just heavy accessory -things like heavy back extensions, front squats seems to be up there as well, good mornings etc etc.
In a monthly cycle if they pull off the floor once a month, they will rotate (front squats, GM’s etc) and out of 4 weeks…one of the weeks they will pull for speed off of the floor…lets say for 10 singles (depending how much volume and work you will do afterwards) 10 singles…as fast as possible…100lbs or more below their max.
How many of you actually have found that speed deadlifts during a cycle actually help (THOSE OF YOU THAT TRAIN THIS WAY) cause I know I pull from the floor every week for so long and I get absolutely nowhere.
And I want to know how many of you does it really help. I’m talking sub-par deadlifters…it seems the stronger you are, the more speed work is beneficial…but for guys in the 500 range…and those who go below 500 because of improper training (pulling too heavy too often) does it help as much, or what?
