Deadlifters dont deadlift that much, preferring to do assistance exercises for speed, power and strength. Hopefully this works for me [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I wish I had that luxury. Can't do anything else because of my right knee.
The reason deadlifters don't deadlift much is because it takes everything out of you. My deadlift has gone up over the past couple months (deadlifting 1-2 times per week), and I'm still strong in the weight room, but the other 23 hours a day moving is a struggle.
Resting up for a couple weeks, deadlifting one last time, and then I'm done for at least a year.
"Do not make the mistake of limiting your practices to any one set of lifts...Practice everything...single and double-handed lifts, snatching and swinging, jerking and pressing, lying down with weights, supporting weights, lifting weights while laid on the back, ring weights, human weights, and, if possible, double-handed lifts to the knee, and harness lifts, also holding the bell aloft and bringing a weight after with the disengaged hand." ~ Arthur Saxon
