Given that getting it off the floor isn’t really a problem, would pulling from a disadvantage really help?
I suspect it IS my hamstrings that are holding me back (in my squat too I think), although I have been doing romanian deadlifts with 65-70% of my deadlift 1RM for reps for a good while. Should I think about upping the weight and dropping the reps perhaps?
My rep range is usually 2-3 on my work sets, although I do drop in singles once in a while. I am training deadlift every week though (I can’t help it if it’s my favourite lift) so I might switch to every two weeks and see how that feels.
I’ve added some heavy grip work in the last couple of weeks, just loading up a bar with 4 plates a side and holding it until I drop it back onto the rack, and I stick farmer’s walks in there once in a while. I don’t think my grip is a problem though - I do use straps on my heaviest set, but that’s more to do with sweaty palms and lack of chalk than actual grip strength.
I was wondering whether it would be worth dropping the weight and working on my speed for a while as that’s certainly an area I feel I’m lacking in.
