How is your lower back feeling? If you are feeling no ill effects from your current deadlift program, don't change. Especially if you're going up in weight.

I find that I need at least a few heavy singles each week to keep my strength up. I did 10 rest paused @ 405 for months, and my max didn't jump up. But when I add in a few singles, it goes up.

You are doing the right thing (IMHO) doing the lighter rep work last. It will feel lighter, and make the training feel like it's moving along.

bwys61 is more of a straight powerlifter then me, so don't hesitate to pick his brain.

Yea I was hoping he would throw some stuff out here but i may have to ask him directly, my lower back is sore, it feels stiff most of the time, and I know when I wake up tomorrow it will be very sore.

I also think that my body is still getting used to doing deadlifts so heavy. I have never done them this heavy on a consistent basis. But I do like what I am doing now and I will probably keep it this way for a while.

It sounds like your lower back is the weak part of the chain, which is great news. Being that up in strength, and your deadlift will go up.

My lower back never gets sore. It's always my upper back.

Maybe you could add in some good mornings on deadlift day every other week on a light deadlift day. Just thinking out loud. i am a huge fan of good mornings for both deads and squats. They really helped me.

But again, if your deadlift is going up...don't tweak anything just yet. Stick with what works

I will definitely wait a while, but i agree that my lower back is my weak part. It always has lacked a littel and I really struggle with good mornings so hopefully when my deads stop going up it will just be my back. I hardly ever feel deadlifts in my upper back

This evening I was messing around playing basketball with some friends and I forgot to tie my sneakers I wear them very lose and before I knew I completely rolled my ankle. It turned over pretty far, it has now swelled up like a balloon.

I didnt feel any popping or hear anything so hopefully it will just be sore for a couple days. I figure I can leave squats and deadlifts out of my workouts for a few days until it feels better.

Such terrible feeling though, hopefully only a minor setback. It is just feeling sore now, and I am able to put weight on it, so just a minor injury but a pain in my rear.

Hopefully it's just minor. Slap a cold pack on it, and hopefully you have no sharp pain in the morning. It you get sharp pain...well, time to visit the doc.

Good job Jwood. When's the next squat day for you? Hopefully you'll be ready to go by then.
