    Deadlift frequency

    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?

    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.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    I think once a week is plenty. If you are making progress keep doing what you are doing.
    750/500/690 APF Elite @ 242

    Bench Only - Multi Ply SPF - 600 @ 275 (251)

    Bench Only - Single Ply USAPL - 501 @ 275 (255)

    Bench Only - Single Ply SPF - 550 @ 259 (257)

    Monday: Heavy Squat
    Wed: Deadlift variants (RDLS, Stiff leg sumos, conventional band pulls, pulls off blocks) Try for competition style PR every 6 weeks
    Friday: Light squat with special bar (ssb, cambered bar, front squat harness)

    Most weeks I deadlift twice. It's rarely a competition style deadlift though. I use a lot of deadlift variants and reps. There's a huge difference between a competition style max and SLDL for sets of 5.

    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.
