Theoretical Question

What would be the likely outcome of performing a one single deadlift every day, adding, say, 0.5 - 1 kg per day?

Of course, this is based on the assumption that you are well practiced at performing heavy deadlifts.

Any opinions on this?

    eventually you will get to a weight and will find it hard to improve. You need to add a variety of lifts in order to progress i.e. squats etc.

    Would you include warming-up in this theoretical session or just going straight into a single ?

    I would say for that to work, you'd need to start very very light and perform more than one single a day. It's a tough one really. It can work with curls but that's a whole diferent kettle of fish. The biceps are tiny in comparison to the other muscles in your body and recover very quickly. Deadlifting on the other hand uses the largest muscles in the body and these recover slower. So you increase the risk of overtraining the muscles AND the CNS/PNS.

    i can see a high risk of injury doing this as well. i beleive i read somewhere on the forum that the best mass building routine would be one set one rep but our bodies can't handle that without hurting itself. On the contrary, I have worked with some guys that go to the gym bench press 400-500 lbs. once and leave. these guys are pretty big guys(bouncers), no mistake but I have see this done.

    I tried some one rep maximum deadlifts the other day without injuring myself.

    If done frequently you would burn out your cns and probably get weaker, i did this in squat a while back.

    you mean 1RMaxing every day? well for one, you would never be able to fuly max without a warmup, and for two, as has been said, progress would cease from probably day 2.
