For some lifts, variation is a must - deadlifts. I found no value in frequent floor pulling. Squats on the other hand I could do daily if I wanted to.
Right now I still use a variation of this type of programming. It takes a lot of discipline. You can't go in trying to kill yourself each day.
So what did you do with the deadlifts BTB? Rotate high - low pulls, deficits, things like that?

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
