The quest an 800 (900?) deadlift and specialization
I want your thoughts on deadlift specialization. I have been tossing this around for months and think I am to the point where I need to either "sh*t or get off the pot" with this idea. Primarily I am trying to decide if it's worth it.
Right now my raw deadlift is close to 675. I am fairly certain by year's end my raw deadlift will be around 700.
After this meet I am going to start using a suit and belt. I was talking with Jonathan Byrd and believe I can add at least 50 pounds with this combo. Looking at 2012 I have a chance of hitting 800 if I work hard. I plan on working hard with the gear, and moving up if I can, even if it's only for a chance at 10-20 more pounds.
My point in all this is that right now all I care about is the deadlift. Time is not on my side and I want to make sure I don't miss any opportunities. If I can get 800 at the age of 45, which I really believe is a possibility, I "might" have a real chance at 900 before age catches up to me. At least I will be making a run at it. Perhaps I will fail in an epic manner.
So, with all this said, do you believe specialization is worth is? It's not like I won't train heavy bench and squat, but I am simply wondering if limiting squat and bench heavy sessions to once a week would be of benefit in the long run?
