I can't seem to get to my goal of 500 on deads. I've been around 400 for a set of 5 for 3 months. Maxed at 450 a month ago.I just can't seem to get anything over 400 up more than 1 or 2 times. Some days I cant get 400 x 5 on my last set. I need help.
my stats are:
I've been lifting for 15 months now, doing starting strength for 8 months.(Great program)
37 years old 5'10" 255 pounds 30% body fat by scale
Bench 275x5 x3 sets 315 max
back squat 380x5 x3 sets, haven't tried to max yet.
over head press 155x5 3 sets
dead lift 400x5 450 max
From my other lifts I feel my dl is lacking.I don't know if it's a mental thing or what.
Thanks for any help you can offer on training ideas.
