Really simple question here. I am trying to find a periodization template for deadlift. Basic, simple linear periodization. Right now the only one i can find is the coan peaking template which i will use if i have to but id like to see what my other options are.
Even a template with just percentages and rep ranges associated with the percentages would be great. Im still somewhat of a novice to powerlifting so i do not believe i am smart enough to come up with my own linear periodization model.
If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great.
There are excellent articles right here @ wanna be big... Just search the article section.
Also, check out texaspowerscene.com They have very basic PL'ing rountines w/ CAT calculator & % which is very conveniant. Just plug in your current 1RM and hit calculate.
Good luck Bro,
I used the Ed Coan one last year and I went from 265 to 315 doing the sumo deadlift. I stopped working out for 5 months and I just started it again recently. I have faith in it. It works well man.
Edit: I'm doing the conventional DL now, because sumo hurt my hips a lot.

When I die. I want to be frozen. And if they have to freeze me in pieces, so be it. I will wake up stronger than ever, because I will have used that time, to figure out exactly why I died. And what moves I could have used to defend myself better now that I know what hold he had me in.
thanks for the tip though, i think i checked every other place except the links at the top LOL
