Hey guys what's up? I've never incorporated deadlifts into my routine but I will be doing so starting next session after doing some reading about the benefits of deadlifting. Seems like I've been missing out on quite a bit for quite some time! I came across an article on-line that suggested you don't perform the deadlift week after week because it is very taxing on the body. It also states that the squat targets similar muscles so that's another reason not to deadlift week in and week out. Here's the link: http://www.freetrainers.com/FT/jsp/M..._ix=23&t_ix=34 "The Top 10 Deadlift Mistakes Mistake #1: Training the deadlift heavy all the time Very few people can train the deadlift week after week and still make progress. I feel the only ones who can get away with this are the ones who're built to deadlift. If you're built to pull, then the stress on your system is going to be less than those who aren't built to deadlift. The deadlift is a very demanding movement and it takes a lot to recover from. This is compounded if you're also squatting every week. The squat and deadlift train many of the same muscles and this is another reason why you don't need to train the deadlift heavy all the time." Is the above referring to going to failure with deadlifts or what? What's you guy's feedback on this?
I don't nessairly agree. I think you have to know your own body. Most people can handle both in the same week.
I suggest you change it up. I do not know anyone who can kill it every week and make progress. It does not matter what type of training you are doing you got to change it up. We have Flex Bands at our gym so we can pull bands one week and then pull weight from the floor the next. If you do not know what I am talking about you can look on the instructional videos. My training partner Brett is on there doing sumo pulls and stiff legged deadlift with bands. I personally pull bands every 2 to 3 weeks. I do feel you can squat and deadlift in the same week. I just do not recommend doing squats or deadlift on consecutive days. That would be like training Chest on one day and then shoulders the next. I feel you benefit from doing both in the same week because when you compete you are going to be competing with muslces that were used on other events.
we pull every week.....and usally take off from pulling every 6 weeks or so.
I believe in pulling and squatting every week....and I have a physical job! You guys are young.....stop being so scientific.....just lift the damn weight!
I'm pretty new to powerlifting, but I'm doing sort of max effort one week, and speed lifts the following. You might want to look into some of the Westside stuff, so at least you can see the theory about why/how they change it up. It's been very helpful for me to learn.
I agree i am a heavyweight5 i pull 650lbs i train deads once every 2 weeks u need time to recover def esp if you squat too There is really no need to pull every week. You need to recover from pulling longer then bench and squat. I used to do it every week for a while then laid back a couple weeks came in and pullede and was stronger. Different strokes for different folks i guess.

well let me throw a wrench in the gears. i am just starting a dead routine that has me pulling 3xw. today will be my 3rd pull since thursday. bear in mind ea workout is a different variation of pull and intencity varies as well. we'll see what happens. i have also read that a lot of the finish lifters pull 3xw. this may be why they have huge deads compared w/americans but fall behind in the bench and occasionally the squat. i am a firm believer in, the more frequently you can lift without overtraining the faster youll improve your #s on any lift. finding that balance is a key to success.
