So WBB1 has deadlift (and squat) at 2 sets of 6-8. More often than not, though, I see recommendations for much shorter heavy sets since form tends to degrade over a long set. I know that the best thing to do is to try something different and see if it works, so last week I moved deads to 3x5 but went heavier than I did the week before.
I liked the lift more with the shorter sets, and I'm thinking I may do something similar for squat.
I'd like to vary the routine some, so I'm thinking of using some weeks for form/endurance and doing 3x5 or 5x5 with lighter weights and then having other weeks go for more of a heavy singles/doubles. Think it'll work?
Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.
Sounds alright. Give it a try and see if it works for you.

The first changes I made to WBB1, a routine I did for more than a year, was alter the big three's set/rep scheme. I say go for it!
