2) 3 to 5" inch heavy deadlifts at least every other week for 1 to 2 years. I trained them exclusively for 2 years, really helped my lockout.

3) Low rack pull and shrug combo. This movement teaches you to pull explosively and can't be faked.

Do those for a year and report back.
I have versagripps, love them! I neglected rows and have recently added a day of training every other week or so just for rows and Kroc rows. I admit freely my rows need work.

What do you mean 3-5" deads? From blocks?

When would you fit in low rack pull and shrugs on a 4 day, dead, ohp, squat, bench split?

I kind of realized that most everybody who fails a deadlift does so in first few inches.
