Deadlift

I have a good 1 rep max but hate doing them. Is there something else out there that works the same thing Thanks.

Re: Deadlift

No, not really.

You can 1rm off a variation or a 2/3rm but nothing is as true as a 1rm.

Re: Deadlift

Deadlift can be aided by some lower back work and hamstring work.

Single legged DL are great also.

Can I ask what it is you hate about doing deadlifts?

I would do some accessory lifts (Google will bring up a ton) to help with weakness areas but in the end, doing the DL improves it.

What does your typical deadlift day look like?

Last Monday was 7 sets of 3 DL to find max 3 rep. Hit 425 and felt a little sore Tuesday but still felt fine the rest of the week.

How is diet?

So did you warm up on lighter weights first or just jump to 350?

Re: Deadlift

If it blows you up then you can do less volume or not deadlift as often.

For volume several programs use just 1 set of 5 (after warmup) because deadlift is so hard on recovery.

For frequency, many programs use deadlift far less frequently than squats. If you aren't a novice anymore then maybe you should only deadlift heavy once a month or so.

There are more options but without more info on your routine, background, experience, age, weight, form, etc it's hard to get really specific.

Re: Deadlift

If you do the same sort of thing over and over again without any change you are going to get bored.. it's as simple as that!

Mess things up a little and make it more fun, you don't always have to go heavy.

For example:
1 - for today you must lift in total 16000lbs.
how you do that, what ever weight and how many reps plays no part, just lift that amount in total.

2 - heavy vs light lift x 2 day.
1 heavy lift = 2 lifts at half the weight. So for example you do 10 lifts at 250lbs means you must also do 20 lifts at 125lbs. And you do this for as long or as heavy as you want.

The list goes on and on but it makes it fun but it can also test you in a different way then after a week to 10 days go back to normal DL and then mess things up again after that.

You need change and inspiration
