I will add this to what BBG said. I've been doing heavy singles at 80-88%+ this past year, and my deadlift is suffering - it hasn't budged. I've performed them religiously, once a week. I was experimenting with "lighter" singles to see if it would benefit my deadlift total. In one year my max dropped 45 pounds.

I've found that the only times my deadlift goes up is when I do singles at 90%+ each week. Not many, mind you. But some. All the "under 90%" work doesn't seem to help me.

I've also found good mornings and front squats to be beneficial.

BTW, I prefer to do heavy deadlift singles in waves of 4 weeks. Something like 85, 90, 95, new max. Like I said, if I linger too low, my deadlift suffers.
