What's you best deadlift?
The Bear? The original called for a top set of 5, then another 5 at 90% of the first weight, then sets of 5 till failure with 80% of your top weight. I prefer the 532 variation and then a fixed weight for 10 sets of 5 with the backoff sets. Not too bad and you can cycle the weights this way.
Never done a deadlift max per se but I can hit a triple with 480. That 435 for 5 was meant to be a decent weight to start a cycle..can probably hit it for 7.
