It seems like there are a million articles that say they can help raise your deadlift numbers.With all these articles are a plethora of different ways. So many I get overwhelmed. I have recently deadlifted 430. Not great but it is good ,no? I have not done anything fancy just deadlift and add weight on the bar periodically. I haven't really stalled in this manner but I am looking to start pulling with the big dogs.
I want to add a lot to my deadlift. Should I just keep slowly adding weight or is it necessary to do all this other stuff, such as partial assistance like Romanian deadlifts,stiff legged,and rack pulls? Or other stranger things such as using chains or pulling with giant rubber bands? Should I worry about these things when I am really stuck? I have been deadlifting twice a week, then once a week in a alternating fashio.
Now I am past 400, is that too much? Should I be doing speed work, whatever that is? I do really like keeping things simple, and feel that I have been able to build above average strength from it, but what should I do from here? Do you believe heavy squats will also help raise my other lifts? I mean do you get stronger in all the lifts simi-simultaneously?
