    how much are you deadlifting now?

    ever thought about using singles? my deadlift skyrocketed on singles.

    f*** thats strong lol... in that case dont take advice from me lol.

    i dont know im not experienced with weight like that, but maybe you need to drop back a bit and recycle your way up? give the body a bit of a break from high intensity and work your way back up, do some speed work etc.

    also work out where your weakness is, lock out, breaking it off the floor, then work on the weakness by doing lockouts, leg work etc.

    You say that have pulled 270k in the past? Why not adopt the same routine as you did then? If you have done that sort of weight, then you obviously know what you are doing, and I would come to you for advice.

    take 2 weeks off deadlifting and dont go crazy heavy on upper back work for 2 weeks then start back 5x5 and build back up to a decent weight again slowly over a couple of weeks!

    Sorry trev1, I just re-read my post and it may have come across as a bit sarky, certainly did'nt mean it to be! Sorry, can't offer any help.

    This works best for me..like a download cycle..at best maybe work on rows and such but not heavy, then pryamid back into heavier weights over course of a few weeks
