Thought I would share a 7 week cycle I just ran of ROM progression resulting in a 50lb gain on my 12rm on deadlifts. 2 months ago, I pulled 445 for 12 reps off the floor, seen here
Right around that time I ended up injuring my hamstring, and had to start using partials instead of full ROM movements. I decided to use a trick that had worked for me in the past of using rubber patio pavers to do some ROM progression.
Found in most local hardware stores.
I stacked 7 per side under the plates at first, pulled once a week for one set of 12, and each week I would remove one paver. I took video of weeks 2-7, to include the end result of pulling 495 for 11 and a half reps (lost the final one due to falling forward)
Overall, it was a success, and I thought I’d share it with some folks looking for a different approach to train. It’s definitely not revolutionary, but Paul Anderson and Bob Peoples are still awesome.
