I cycle the volume of deadlifts.
Example week one = shooting for 1-2 rp max effort
week two = high reps with about 100 pounds less

I think deadlifting more than once a week is overboard for 90% of people.

So, when you guys are building up strength for deadlifts...do you think it's more beneficial to deadlift every week, or to alternate deadlifts with rack pulls?
Like I mentioned in your training journal, yesterday, Brad Gillingham has an excellent deadlift program which delivers PRs by alternating full ROM deadlifts from the floor and partial deadlifts in the rack, week by week. In my most humble opinion, it works VERY well. However, that's not to say it's always better than doing the deadlift every week. It will vary with the individual. If you, specifically, think your muscles (mostly posterior chain - lower back, glutes, and hams) and nervous system are getting too fatigued from pulling off the floor every week, then it's time to do partials (both under and over the knee) in the rack every other week. Also, another reason the latter method (deadlift and rack pull, alternated) is beneficial is because it hammers the lockout which is a problem for many lifters, myself included.

Simple answer. If your upper back rounds when you deadlift, then you alternate in rack pulls to strengthened your back so that it doesn't. If your have no problem deadlifting and it feels fine, you deadlift each weak. The 3 main stages of a training plan should be :

1.Establish a goal; whether it be a competition, lift or set of lifts you want to excel in, and give your self time to complete that goal, (6weeks to 3 months)
This chooses what main exercises you will do, i.e. Deadlifts.

2. Find your strengths, fix your weakness',refine your technique.
This defines your assistance movements as well as whether or not you need to get bigger, faster or just plain stronger.

3.Should be simple enough for you to understand what your doing, and why your doing it. This means you really need to know your body and closely analyze what types of training splits, days, frequency and volume is right for you,once you factor in your prior frequency.

Thoughts on good mornings for the back rounding issue?
