How many times have you gone into a powerlifting meet and it all comes down to your deadlifts to determine if you place first or fourth? I am sure this is a common predicament. I do not have the answer, but I do have a workout that can guarantee you an increase in your next deadlift.

But before trying this routine, you must make a commitment to yourself that you will:
1) Have a goal
2) Be patient
3) Never use the word can't
4) Train to win.

Even though I use the sumo style, conventional-style deadlifters will also benefit from this routine as well. I use an eight-week training cycle, deadlifting once per week. I increase the weight 20 pounds each week. My reason for this is that I don't like to overtrain the back, and eight weeks is short and sweet. Also, you must not peak early

If your max is 500 pounds, you can expect to make an increase of 35-40 pounds in eight weeks. Because my starting lifts are begun with percentages that are never lower than 80%, we will use 80% to start the cycle.

On this workout, you will also start your deadlifts one week earlier than your squats or benches.

Rest 8-10 days before the meet.

Max = 500 x 80% = 400 lbs.
