what you say has alot of merit…
but as far as I know (which isn’t much) there are three major ways to increase strength:
dynamic effort method, max effort method, and sub-max effort method (i.e. reps)…
so why not incorporate all three into a decent training program?
there are alot of guys that have busted through deadlifting plateaus using various higher rep schemes in their training…[/quote]
That’s a fair point, all 3 have their place in stregth training.
I personally prefer to use something less taxing for my sub-max work, pull throughs, rev hypers, GHRs, even…gasp leg presses.
My vote is that the original poster, cvb, work the deadlift in all 3 types to see what she gets the most out of, then press that kind of training for her DL.
Smash that 300!
