By the early-to-mid 1950s he recommended that experienced trainees only work up to one top set of Deadlifts and that should be done only once or twice a week - not three times as the routine seems to imply. It looks to me as though this routine came from possibly an old Reg Park Journal and the original presenter left out the special considerations Park added in about the Deadlifts, or the details just got lost over the years.
Thanks Casey for this post. It really shines a light on the reality that I need (and want) to study these guys more. I am just beginning to tap into the lifting habits of old school lifters and had no clue that Reg rarely deadlifted.
