I was planning on adding spead deads into my training, done after DE squats. What is the general recommended number of sets? I assume all sets would be singles? Thanks in advance.

I've always done 8-12 singles when doing speed pulls. When we do these with a relatively light weight, we do at least 8 sets and sometimes up to 12+. We do work up once in while, in which case we probably do 5-6 singles with one or two of those sets at the top weight. I've found even with true speed pulls, if we keep the rest periods short (30-45 seconds) we still get a good training effect.
