I got 365 for 5 around christmas time but due to some issues with even accessing a gym and then an injury obtained from squatting that kept me out of the gym for a long time, I’ve been relegated to a 315 for 5 deadlift.
Strange thing is, I just can’t seem to get past that point. I’ve been embarassingly stuck here for about two months.
Still, I’m starting 5/3/1/ in a week or two and I’m looking forward to only focusing on only one lift each day. I got to my a 365x5 DL using Rippetoe’s SS and when my DL strength tapered off I felt that it was mainly because my legs and back were so fucked from squats(particularly high volume squats on the Texas Method) so I’m hoping for big things from now on.
I’ve always felt like a good deadlifter. I don’t know if I have beneficial anthropometry for it but I really enjoy deadlifting. This is a good thing 'cos I fucking hate squatting.
So yeah I gotta get in on this.
Best of luck to all.[/quote]
Something that I changed up, was I rack pull every other deadlift day. So since today I deadlifted, in 5 days I’ll rack pull instead. It’s weird because my sticking point is actually from the floor, but since I’ve been doing this, both my rack pull AND my regular deadlift have shot up. A month ago, or a little more, my 1RM deadlift was 350, but today I pulled 365 X 6. Try this out if you want

Haha, I think I’m built for deadlifts. My box squat is a weak 250 X 6, and today I deadlifted 365 X 6. Oh well, it’ll come around eventually
