    Deadlift help!

    My dead lift is 520 pounds.

    I would like to raise that number in about 3 weeks to 1 month.

    What would be the best way to do that??

    Try something like this. Anthony goes about every 8 days I think. I've been using his 3-5 rep max thing and I can just about rep my old max 3 times now after about 3 weeks.

    seems like a good idea. Just to clarify:
    Pull your 5 RM. Add 5 lbs the next week and pull for 5 again. Repeat until you can't get 5 reps, at which point you drop to triples. Keep adding weight until you can't pull 3 reps, then do singles.

    I've seen something very similar in a bench program. Seems to work well for a lot of things.
    5'9" 195 lbs
    DL 600x1
    SQ 490x1 (raw)
    BP 430x1 (shirted), 320x1 (raw)

    A good deadlift plan should attack your weaknesses. I can't look at your videos yet... do you have problems off the floor/lockout? What style to do you lift? These are questions that might help you change your focus with DL training.
