Hi, quick question about weight ramping on deadlifts.
Im doing rippetoes routine, so on deadlift day I warmup with a few sets then build to a working set of 1x5 reps. I wondered how I should break down the weights in my warm up sets?
Last workout I did:
working set: 1x5 297
I'm pretty tired by the time I hit my working set. Any advice on how to structure the warm ups?
Also, on my working set, it really is a max effort for 5 reps. I really struggle to get the first rep off the floor, then 2,3,4 are ok, with a huge effort for number 5. Is this usual? Or do most people find the first rep ok?
