All World Deadlift
Question please; I just started the AWDL routine and did 600 for a triple in week 1 fro my max. Do I add weight for each 3X max as I progress? Also, this training seems very lock-out centric. Does anyone have any feedback on how it helped them off the ground if it did at all.

Here's the program for anyone curious:

I'll have a look and let you know what I think.

The program looks like it states when you should try for PRs. For example, week 3 is:


reverse bands: 1x3 personal record (pr) attempt
Week 10 is a PR, etc. Not sure if this helps.

Let's take a close look.


Heavy = Specified repetition max for the day

Medium = 10-15% lighter load than “heavy” described above

Lighter = A load which would permit the completion of 4 or more reps more than that prescribed for the set (i.e. if the set calls for 10 reps you choose a load which you can get for 14+ reps)

I have purposely left the loads and routine in general somewhat vague as I firmly believe the reader must experiment within the parameters of the general template provided.
So it is a pretty general. I would probably go by feel each day while warming up, except when it states going to a PR.

The following weeks are PR attempts:


week 3 - reverse bands: 1x3 personal record (pr) attempt, then 1x3 medium

week 4 - against bands: 1x3 pr attempt, 1x3 lighter

week 10 - against bands: 1x3 pr attempt, then big single

week 13 - box pulls: pr attempt

week 14 - against bands: pr attempt, then 1x3 lighter

Thanks Boss,
This does make sense and, hopefully, the number will have to be pushed up each PR attempt. I will post how this does for my raw lifts off the floor as it seems to be very focused on the top end.

Best Regards,
