I’ve recently started 531, on the 3rd week right now but my deadlift reps are extremely low and difficult to complete.
Before i started I tested my 1rms, deadlift was 147kg and I’ve been working off an 85% tm for all my lifts.
1st week last set was 5x+ at 106kg and I was expecting to get at least 10 easy reps as this was relatively light. Only managed 6 and it was very hard, I genuinely thought I was just having an off day as a few weeks back I did 125x5 after squats so that was that and I moved on.
Next week was 3x+ at 112kg, got four reps and again it was shit. This week 1x+ at 118kg and got 3 reps… these are all lower than my working weights that i was previously doing on stronglifts after squats so I know I can complete them especially fresh.
So what I’m getting at is why has my deadlift dropped so much and should I on my next cycle change my deadlift tm to the first weeks weight where I got 6 reps at 106?
All other lifts are about 8-12 reps depending on lift and week.
Hopefully it’s in the correct section, didn’t want to post in the 531 specific as it’s not about the program but instead me sucking
