Its really up to you, but I think after a couple of reps I really start to lose my form.
My form is bad enough on my first rep and after that it really goes to hell. This is exactly why I want to do lower rep range stuff. I'll consider a 3x3 or something.

BUT, I see many, many multiple rep sets - if not most - where good form is lost after one rep.

If you want to do 2's or 3's, at least reset your form between each rep.

Kman, I have a challenge for you...last workout you did 15 reps with 285. Next time in the gym, I want you to do 20 singles with 285 in 10 minutes. After each single, rest only 15 seconds, take time and setup properly, then do another rep. Try this once. See how you like it.
I'm not a fan either.

I wil try that sometime, but i have to say i dont think i'll like it. I dont know if i could make myself keep going, or i may try to do it too fast and burn out too quickly.
I know it seems as simple as it gets, but i dont know how i'd like it... but sometime I will try it.

How do people do singles? what i mean by this is how do you progress ect. Is it the same where you just add 5lbs each time. or what?

currently i deadlift twice a week. Maybe what i could do is triples or singles 1 day and then what MAB (or btb, now that you changed your name) suggested the other day....?

thanks for the help guys
