Deadlift 1 RM attempts

I have recently got to a 1RM of 150kg on deads but I am pretty sure I can go heavier. Problem is I dont wanna injure myself, but at teh same time I wanna break 160kg. The 150 went up pretty well, but I am not sure how often I should be doing 1RM's. Any advice on this lads/ladies would be much appreciated.

    I wouldn't get caught up in continously trying to top max lift. If your not competing, aim at getting the weight on your working sets up, then maybe every month or two try to improve max lift. Maxxing week in and week out and your asking for an injury.

    I hear ya man. Thanks,
    I just wanna hit the high 160's thats all. I guess I should concentrate on pushing at least 5 reps on lower weights and move up gradually.
    Cheers

    aye definately good advice.

    Try doing some 3/4 deads and barbell shrugs in a rack - these can help you acclimatise to the feel of the higher weight.
    also try partials at different heights using the pins at different heights.

    but maxing every week will burn you out sharpish.

    For those of you that aren't keen on the idea of working with one rep maxes, what do you think of Brooks Kubik's belief that doing singles on an on-going basis is the best way to achieve maximum strength gains?

    He's achieved some impressive results using only singles.

    Good point. Thats pretty much what I do. Either working up to a triple of a single in big movements. However, Brooks clearly states that you have to be an experienced trainer to do it, and you have to know your own body very well. You also have to get your connective tissues upto a high strength to be able to do it.

    Agree with all the above really once a month tries on 1rm fo novice or intermediated is plenty. once you are more experienced 1rm training can be increased to bi weekly or even weekly for short bursts, its the only way to go to gain ultimate strength imo. Mikey id be carefull doing to many 1rm attempts at your age give yourself time to get strong mate it dont happen overnight. you are still lifting fairly light at the moment(but alot more than i was lifting at your age) and as you move up with your weights the genuine 100% lifts can cause untold injury. good luck mte excellent stats at 19

    I think working triples or singles like M5 has mentioned is the best way. Work up to 90% of your current 1 rm for 4 singles. Begin by working in triples, then when you get to about the 120 mark, drop to singles and do 4 single reps at 135k. Do this for 3 weeks and then have another go at the 150's, then try the 155's or even 160's.
