Over the past few weeks there have been a few opportunities to set new weightlifting PRs (a 1RM Front Squat, 3RM Push Press). There have also been even more weightlifting days dedicated to training where we build to a submaximal load and hold for a given number of reps and sets. Some strictly dedicated to one movement and others with a barbell lift mixed in with some other strength work going every other minute or every three minutes. This workout is dedicated solely to training the deadlift with volume sets of 3. Ideally, you’ll get 7 sets or 3 reps at the same load, but some athletes may need to tinker up or down after a couple sets to get the right load. Rest 2-3 minutes between sets. These 7 sets should take about 20 minutes to complete. A good goal for many to shoot for is around 80% 1RM.
