This. I can train with 90%+ on both bench and squat on a regular basis (usually once a week), but pulling percentages like that tears me up. My deadlift has progressed with a focus on 70-80% and sticking almost exclusively to regular pulls from the floor.

But I'm going to start messing with variations. I've never trained deficit deads, and I think I could really benefit from them, so they'll become a regular part of my training soon. Anything I can do to get stronger with less strain on my back is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
