How many days per week are you guys deadlifting. Right now I am DL'ing once a week on Monday and then squatting on Friday. Is this enough or should I DL twice a week?
Bench Raw 560 Equipped 725 single ply
I'd beat the tar out of myself deadlifting twice per week.
Finally ELITE @ SHW..
Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

powerlifting 30 yrs, i do squat and deads same day as that is what u do in meets, one week off the floor,next low pin in racks
I think once a week is plenty. If you are making progress keep doing what you are doing.

i pull full range of motion every week on my speed days and every other week on heavy days. the weeks i don't pull full range of motion on my heavy day i pull from pins just below my knees. and i change up my stance once or twice a month from sumo to conventional to make my muscles work differently.
Impossible is an option, not a fact.
