My deadlift hasn't improved throughout the year. I been pulling heavy once a week and it doesn't seem to workout for me now. I decided to make changes to my lowerbody days. No GHR is available at my gym. My plan is to pull heavy bi-weekly. This will all be done raw. Here is an example layout:

Week 1 - ME: pull off floor with bands and/or chains
Week 2 - DE: box squat followed by speed pulls
Week 3 - ME: rack pulls straight weight
Week 4 - DE: box squats followed by speed pulls
Week 5 - ME: pull off floor, reverse band
Week 6 - take this week off, repeat cycle next week

Followed will be secondary/assistance movements like: rope pull through's, abduction/adduction machine work, hyper extension, etc. Then lastly some ab work.

Let me know what you think. What changes could make it better and whatnot.

Where do you live? There's a few powerlifting gyms in the bay area.
