Deadlift resetting

For a 15-20 rep deadlift, would it matter if you used touch-and-go or full resetting between reps provided you kept progressing from week to week?

I'm currently doing CFSB, and for the 3-5 reps I obviously deload and reset. Then when aiming for 20 with 135kg, I only managed 10 reps when deloading, despite being pretty sure I could have gotten very close to 20 if I used touch and go.

Thoughts?

Re: Deadlift resetting

Technically a deadlift would be stopping fully and not bouncing off the ground. I think you would be cheating your performance and progress by doing it any other way.

Re: Deadlift resetting

Yep, you have to keep the "Dead" part of it. Now if you are going for time you could touch and go which would give you a Deadishlift, but I would avoid slaming or bouncing at all costs.

Deadlifts do not bounce. I will beat anyone bouncing deadlifts at the meatfest.

Re: Deadlift resetting

Argh, fine, I'll suck it up.

This Meatfest sounds brilliant. BBQ, WOD, the occasional deadlift-inspired fight, what more could anyone ask for?

I can bring all of Antons stuff which includes an Eleiko powerlifting bar, another decent bar, 2.5 inch thick bar, safety squat bar, 8 45s, 4 35's, 4 25's and some nickles and dimes (all milled).

Re: Deadlift resetting

My God, whatever this event is sounds like holiday to me...BBQ, deadlifts, yum.

Anyways, touch and go is a touchy subject. If you're doing low weight (<50%) then it might not be to dangerous, especially if its for time. But with higher weight, there is absolutely nothing wrong with reseting/deloading and starting a "fresh" rep.

Just my .02

Re: Deadlift resetting

Touch and go isn't a dead lift. it's something else, don't do them. At least not for training. At the games, do whatever you need to to win

Re: Deadlift resetting

If you're resetting on a set of deadlifts over 5 reps, stop it. Even that's a high estimate if you never plan on doing a powerlifting meet in your life.

The reason to reset a deadlift is because under meet conditions, when going for a 1RM, you don't get the benefit of the stretch reflex and so touch and go trains your body in the wrong way. This is the same for anyone doing pause benches for high reps.

However, that completely flies out the window when you're conditioning your body, as opposed to acclimating yourself to lifting with instant snap power and the benefits you'd get from doing all 15 reps nonstop (and even better, resting at the TOP of the lift) far outweigh what little you'd get from resetting on the floor.
