Might be a stupid question but hey. So Starting Strength specifically prescribes only one working set of deadlifts, saying that any more would be too taxing (even for a beginner). I’m currently only using a single work set as well, but I’m wondering if this is enough. I certainly don’t feel too smashed afterwards… which is probably for the better, but I digress.
I know that deadlifts are taxing on the CNS etc., but I can’t think of any other exercise where one set twice a week would cut it. Are deadlifts just too taxing to mess around with, or can you add more volume? Should you add more volume, or do the risks outweigh the rewards?
