    Weekly Increase on Deadlift

    How much should I increase my deadlift each week. I have been doing 10 but today's was nearly impossible and I am pretty sure it was too much for my back to handle.

    Thanks.

    I do a 5x5 Deadlift routine and I am currently at 175lbs

    if 10 is to much, then 5. if you can pull off the same thing you did last week with any increase, that's progress. if you can't pull that weight, work on the same weight until you are proficiently comfortable before upping it.

    i agree, 5 lbs is perfect if u r having trouble with 10..
    i did 5x5 for a while, i had some good progress..

    but i started to do pyramid sets. that is when i started to bang up some big weight..

    i do 135 for a quick warm up set. 15 reps.

    225 = 12
    285 = 10, i jump up big for the second set
    305 = 8
    325 = 6
    335 = 4
    350 = 2, its a rough two reps..lol
    225 = 8


    i love the deadlift, goodluck man

    I'd stalled out on deads a few weeks ago. Couldn't get more than 340 for 4 reps for 3 weeks in a row. Finally got that 6th rep last week, I was so damn excited.

    I took a break from DL for the first 5 months of 2008,then I started pulling again in June.

    I DLed 200kg end of August-this sounds incredible,a 60kg(132lb) increase in 3 months? Yes,it's true.

    Since then,my DL progress is not as rapid though.

    I wouldn't try to add more than 5-10lbs between PR attempts. Of course you can add more than that when you're a noob making rapid gains but it increases the risk of injury and your form going down the ****ter.

    Increase after stability

    I feel you should continue with your normal weight for some duration rather than increasing the weights as the muscle will take time to recoup the strength and builds on only by time. So i feel you should keep using the same weight untill the stability comes in and when you feel this weight can be easily lifted, increase the weight.
    Check out my progress and how I went from 157lbs to 191lbs in 9 months..

    It'll be impossible to increase every week sooner or later.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Well, I've been doing 3x10 over the last 3 months since my return to the gym. I have increased AT LEAST 5 lbs. per week - sometimes more.

    Years ago, when I was younger & a gym regular for a considerably long length of time... I added AT LEAST 5 lbs. per week EVERY week.
    So, FOR ME, deadlifts is an awesome movement that agrees with my body, even today at 40 years old. Like anything else, everybody is different. See what works for you and run with it.
    Bascially, as long as you can knock out your reps with good form - add weight the next time. If not... your loss.

    It's not going to be possible to continuously add weight each week. For sure, there are a few, like joes_dad, above, who are able to do it, but as he said, he's built to deadlift.You're not him, and I'm not either.

    If you can get your reps with an extra 5, good on ya. If you can't, try the same weight next week. If that, too, stalls, there are several things you can try. One is to lift heavier, at three reps, for a few weeks, then go back to your previous stalled weight/reps, and try it again. If that doesn't get you moving again, you can try cutting your load by 10%, and starting over.

    If you're eating right, and getting enough rest, you'll eventually break through, and continue to progress.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    Where the mind goes, the body follows.
