The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Help me get my deadlift to 600

    Alright. As of last Monday I just hit an all time PR of 550 on my deadlift. My goal has always been to get into the 600's. Prior to this PR I've been using the 5/3/1 for my deadlift. This took me from 475 to 550. Assistance work has consisted off:

    Pull throughs
    Back Raises
    Step ups
    Leg Curls

    My question is should I restart the 5/3/1 again taking 10% off my maxing and basing the percentages off of 500, or switch to more ME approach with it work with singles in the 90% range. I feel as though I may be getting stale doing the 5/3/1 as I've been running it since September; then again the old saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix so I'm kind of confused as to what direction I should take.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks all.

    EDIT: If it helps any, I'm strong off the floor and usually stall about the knee or slightly below.
