Still increasing the deadlift double-doubles. These were a bit harder than before but still progressing nicely. Next week will be a reps PR.

I have a bit of an abbreviated schedule this week since I’m going to LA for the weekend and working from home on Friday. Bench and Squat Volumes and Intensity are on the same day this week (maybe even deadlift, we’ll see) and will be the same next week since I’m taking off Monday. If all goes well I should hit my old Squat PR this thursday (415×3) and then it’s on to new PRs!

  1. I am interested in seeing how the doubles work for you on the deadlift. I got to a 500 deadlift using one all out set of 5+ reps pretty easy. And now that I have lost weight it seems alot harder to pull that off with squatting intensity before it.

    1. That’s pretty impressive, getting to 500 with 5s. I had technique issues for a while and my deadlift floundered while my Squat overtook it. Now it’s heavier again but they’re still pretty close. I like the doubles because it’s enough volume to garner progress but not as exhausting as a five-repper.
