    If you look a few post up you will see an example of training, I posted it for someone else. Read up on some dead lift training articles at Elite EFS or West Side Barbell. You will find lots of other training methods there that may fit what you want to do a little better.

    But yes, it all comes down to what each individual responds to. So I, nor anyone else, can tell you what will work for you. I am not a deadlift expert, nor do i claim to be one. All i can do is relay what has helped me add close to 200lbs on my deadlift over the last few years, over the 523 i pulled at my first comp.

    If you dont mind, I have a couple questions.

    Age?
    Weight?
    Number of years training?

    You know it man. I had just finished 4 years of school while working semi full time job AND helping run a family business. I was physically and mentally exhausted. I was having panic attacks, breakin out, having anger management issues ,put on 25 pounds of flub and was starting to feel my age........

    Deadlifts saved my life..........Well, excercise has totally changed me. I love it, AND i really do love deadlifts......Just did them 15 minutes ago..........I am high now....

    Deadlifts are my godsend.......:dl:
