    'Lamar Gant' Deadlift Routine

    I saw this posted online and it looks like an interesting program, based on the intensity (percentages) it would obviously require you to use a somewhat conservative 'training max'. It could also be good for someone who maybe took a bit of a layoff and is looking to step up the intensity and revive their deadlift due to the high volume and intensity.

    http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/fil...%20Routine.pdf

    Week 1: 5x8 70%
    Week 2: 5x8 73%
    Week 3: 5x8 76%
    Week 4: 5x8 78%
    Week 5: 5x5 82%
    Week 6: 5x5 84%
    Week 7: 5x5 86%
    Week 8: 5x5 87%
    Week 9: 5x3 92%
    Week 10: 5x3 94%
    Week 11: 5x3 96%
    Week 12: 5x3 98%

    Has anyone tried this? I personally do not do well with weekly deadlifting but may look at using some of the percentages for other lifts, perhaps knocking weeks 10-12 down to singles or doubles.

    Lamar was built to pull and therefore I think he could handle greater volume etc. than someone with poorer leverage for the movement.

    I feel Ok DL everyweek, but I think the volume is too much.

    Especially at relatively high intensity (percentages), although if someone had been on a program that did not prioritize the deadlift and really wanted to focus there they could likely back off of other lifts and do more 'maintenance' with squat/bench then complete this program. It may also work well for someone who does not have very high strength levels but has a great deal of potential since it could accelerate their gains (beginner/intermediate - assuming that their technique is sound).
