    How many reps for Deadlift?

    I want to know how many reps and sets I should be doing for deadlift.

    My current program is a 5x5:
    135 lbs
    155 lbs
    175 lbs
    185 lbs
    190 lbs

    Should I be on the 5x5, 4x6, or 3x8 for deadlifts? Should I be focusing on high reps, low weight or low reps, high weight?

    I think it depends on your goals...whether it is to gain mass or gain strength. According to Starting Strength, if your goal is strength, you should do 3 x 5 with the warm up sets not heavy enough to interfere with your max weight at 3 x 5.

    In other words, the DL workout might look like this for you if you were following Starting Strength:

    135 x 10 reps
    155 x 2
    175 x 2
    190 x 5 x 3

    I've done everything from 3 reps to 10 reps (well, more for specific sets, but I've never planned a workout for more than 10). I prefer lower reps with higher weight. Higher reps with lower weight seem to take more out of me, and don't seem like they'd help strength as much anyway. For deadlifts, I pretty much only care about strength. Also, I feel like I can keep more control over form for just a few reps. My mind tends to wander more as the reps add up and exhaustion takes hold. I've thrown my back out twice on deadlifts. It was years ago, before I learned proper form, but it still scares me and I remain cautious.

    Walk in gym
    work up to 1RM deadlift
    drop the weight, make a loud noise
    walk out like the ****in man.


    When I deadlift I either superset it with pullups and do 4 sets of 8, or I start my back workout with them and work up to a max followed by no particular rep/set scheme (intuitive). I find that my performance on deadlifts is highly dependent on a lot of things, especially how much I'm feelin it that day. So say I work up to 455, I'll then tear off the quarters and rep 405, tear off the pies and rep 315 and so on. As long as you leave the gym looking like you had just been raped by a silverback gorilla you did okay :P
