    About training heavy deadlifts

    Just as an example, here's how my last Deadlifting session went:

    -45 x 10
    -95 x 5
    -135 x 4
    -185 x 3
    -225 x 2
    -275 x 1
    -315 x 1
    -355 x 1
    -390 x 1
    -315 x 3
    -275 x 5

    My lower back was pretty toast for squats two days later. I mainly wanted to hit the 390 but decided to do extra sets after that. My question though is: if I had stopped after the 390 x 1, could that have been considered a productive workout? The sets preceding 390 (my current 1RM) were considered warming up I suppose, but at the same time it's not like they are really easy things to lift starting at the 275-315 area.

    So I don't know what to really consider work sets, were the 315 and 355 "work sets?" And I don't know if I'm supposed to be done after I max or if I should do a couple extra sets. I am deadlifting every 4-5 days at the moment, with squats inbetween those.
