My Deadlift Query...

Hi all,

I am by no means a strong deadlifter but I could do with some advice from you strong people in this forum...

I am currently doing deadlifts at 5x4 (I was doing 5x5 but I had a problem and J5 recommended 5x4 to me, which I feel is more sensible).

(weights not including olympic bar)
Today I started with 110kg as a warmup and knocked out 4 reps easyish.

I then did 120kg and got these fine.

I then jumped (perhaps too high) to 140kg got 4 reps fine with the 4th really going up slowly.
Then I did another work set of 140kg and the bar slipped out of my hand on the 4th rep before I started (sweat). The third rep on this set almost done me in but I got it.

The same thing happened on my final work set except sweat got the better of me at on the 3rd rep before I started.

My question is are my jumps too high? And can anyone improve how I am tackling my current deadlift routine. Obviously I could use some chalk...

Many thanks all...

    i agree with si, it sounds like you are not confident in the grip and that is becoming your weak link in your chain

    yes use chalk, try hook grip or over hand undrer hand grip and whats wrong with the reps i do 3x3 2s and big singles mix the reps around higher reps 100-130k 6-10 reps or 130-160k 1-6 reps is probably what you would do at present

    Rusev,

    Thanks for your guidelines...

    What would you exactly recommend I do bearing in mind my whole pull routine for deadlifts? How many warmup sets in addition to work sets? How many reps for each set in my case...

    Deadlifts
    one arm db rows
    weighted underhand close grip chins

    i have to say for me personally my deadlift has improved when i work it on a non regular basis, every 3rd week now and i feel more confident with every heavy pull. i have tried to adopt a westside type approach to the lift utilising the box squat and lower back assiatnce work, even using rack deads from knee height which i find i can recover from quite quickly.

    DaveH, that's exactly the back/biceps routine I am starting.

    Sound like you are going to near failure. I would not recommend doing this for more than a few weeks consecutively. Mix it up with reps or accessory work now and then...or as someone suggested take a week off
    altogether. I personally will switch to rack pulls(partials) about once a month.

    What about doing Good Mornings say every 3 weeks instead of Deads would that help?

    I suppose any change would be sufficient.

    okay,

    Thanks.

    Nytol, I'll try your recommendation.

    Perhaps every so often as mentioned I'll drop the deads completely...
