    I don't know how your form is but it may be off slightly. This vid may help a little.

    Also good mornings, pullthrus, and some weighted ab work may help as well.

    How is ab work doing to help you deadlift, which is primarily a leg exercise?

    What sort of assistance work are you currently doing?

    Also currently what are your lifts?

    You could try doing BBB.

    Deadlift is not primarily a leg exercise. Does it incorporate legs to a large degree? Yes. But it also does the same with your entire back. Strong abs are important to maintain intraabdominal pressure which assists in preventing the lower back from rounding.

    Don't do 5/3/1 at this stage, OP.

    Pick a full body program. Do it three times a week, with no two days in a row. Make sure deadlifts are done at least once a week, and weight progression is laid out, more or less, in the program. One example would be Starting Strength. There are numerous others.

    If you have seen no improvement in a such a fundamental lift, in 7 months... yeah, think about a different approach. Really.

    The fact of the matter is, 5/3/1 is one of the best programs out there to improve and assist deadlifts (along with the other three big lifts) - for intermediate+ lifters, anyway. The other possibility here is that you're not at all doing the program right. And/or not at all doing deadlifts right in the first place...

    Maybe try posting a form video in the Exercises forum.

    5x5 doing only bench, squat, deadlift. 3 times a week. Your strength gains will go through the roof. And your deadlift will be WOAH!!!!

    Im doing 531 right trust me. And i pretty much am an Intermediate lifter. I chose 531 becuz it gives slower progression. I tried madcows before and when i got to the 4th week of it where u add 5 lbs and i couldnt even do it. Couldnt progress into the 5th week. Anyway 531 is working for my other lifts. Squat and bench and shoulders r doing good. But My deads have sucked and now my back is killin me. Not sure what to do. 5x5?

    There are two articles on the chaos and pain blog currently on how to choose a deadlift stance - including a 6 week routine which you are supposed to run twice to choose between sumo/conventional and adjust your stance to the best advantage.

    If you screwed up your back, you probably have week spinae erectors - as stated, pullthroughs and GMs will help. Start them off light with high reps and slowly build.
    How to RECOMP:
