Deficit Deadlifts
 
Folks,

A few questions:

1) How much of a deficit is recommended here and why?

2) Rep ranges?

3) Conventional, Sumo?

4) Derp?

Discuss.

I don't like doing too many deficit pulls higher than 2" cos I find it changes my starting position too much and I find it hard to readjust.

I like to work in doubles to prevent going too heavy and get a bit more work in.

I have done both sumo and conventional, sumo is way harder on the hips which could be good if you're in gear.

Derp - I like to add bands to make it even harder.

1) For me some of this is dependent on body type, weight, sumo v conventional, etc. The bigger my belly gets the harder it is to do deficits without unwanted back rounding. With that said, most of you guys aren't a chub like me.

I Personally prefer 3-4 inches.

2) I hate any deadlift reps above singles. I would rather do timed singles than multiple rep sets.

3) Never tried them sumo so I won't comment.

4) Herp.

2 in or so, I have done 3-4in as well as I find it helps to cover all basis of my sticking point

2) Rep ranges?
1-3
3) Conventional, Sumo?
both
4) Derp?
Chains, bands, dead bodies...doesn't matter as long as it benefits my whole focal point and that is breaking my sticking point

I dont do them because I am really strong off the floor, but stick around the knees. Most people I see that train them stand on a 45lb bumper and do sets of 3.

I like doing them with stiff legs in a conventional stance. Normally stand on a wood block, about 3inches. Weights are normally not that heavy 50-70% of max. We work 3-5 sets of 6+ reps.
