My deadlift is relatively the lowest of all my lifts. At my next meet (September), I plan on qualifying for nationals, and wasn’t planning on competing again till Nationals in July.
But I was thinking last night to maybe build up my other lifts and keep training them raw, but doing one or two meets single ply deadlift only to prioritize training for it and overload it.
I guess all this being said, do you think it would be advisable, or would I be better off spending most of this time doing off-season with more bodybuilding work?
Deadlift seems pretty straight forward for single-ply (compared to suited squatting or shirted benching). Do I risk any significant increase in risk of injury to reconsider this idea? I’d also do one lift only so I can go to another gym for my suited deadlift, and then do my other stuff at my main gym.
