    65 deadlifts in one day? (5/3/1)


    So I've just begun 5/3/1 and everything is great. I chose to do the BBB assistance work and with deadlift day approaching I have my concerns. I've never had any luck with high volume deadlifts and all it seems to do is give me a sore back. I've also heard a lot of people advise against doing high volume deadlifts so I'm wondering how to approach this.

    I have the 5/3/1 book (2nd edition) and didn't see this answered anywhere within.

    Thanks for the help guys

    This is the main reason I advise against the BBB template. I'm not a fan of high rep deads or bench.

    Yes BBB is one of the templates you can use, and yes it will consist of the extra sets of deadlifts how Wendler prescribes. He wouldn't have put it in the book if you weren't supposed to do it. Keep in mind it's at a much lighter weight than your 5/3/1 sets.

    I would recommend looking at the Periodization Bible or the Triumviant.

    I've heard a lot of good things about Tate's but not so sure I understand it. Are there any good links to check it out? And the triumviant is just two assistance excercises correct?

    They're both well covered in the book.

    Look in the assistance template section. They're templates #2 and #4.

    Sounds like you're looking at the "5/3/1 for powerlifters" manual, not the "5/3/1 manual 2nd edition."

    I have been doing zercher squats as an accessory to deadlifts and having good results. I do five sets of five at a moderate weight.

    I've been thinking about these lately. What do you consider a moderate weight? Can't try them until my torn brachialis heals.

    As i had not done them since highschool, i started with 135 and added 10 lbs each session until i found a good weight. This way i could work on form, i try and get good reps concentrating on using lots of hip drive. I have been adding five lbs every mesocycle since finding my initial weight.

    I don't find them too hard on the biceps. I just use my arms as a cradle and try not to squeeze it to me as hard.
