Increasing volume instead of weight...


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Increasing volume instead of weight... within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Well....my back isn't gonna take much more and Sunday should be GM or deadlift day. I'm thinking some sort of GM. Don't think I should be doing super heavy GM's nor should I be doing triples or 5's. Was thinking about sticking with singles and doing LOTS of sets working up to a somewhat light 1 rep single (mid/upper 4's.) If I can't handle the super heavy weight or the harder work of 3's...would it be ok to do something like the following? 135 x 5 205 x 3 275 x 3 325 x 1 350 x 1 375

    Increasing volume instead of weight...

    If I can't handle the super heavy weight or the harder work of 3's...would it be ok to do something like the following?
    135 x 5
    205 x 3
    275 x 3
    325 x 1
    350 x 1
    375 x 1
    400 x 1
    425 x 1
    450 x 1
    475 x 1

    That is a lot more sets than I am used to...any idea if I would get the same or close to the same amount of proper stress on the deadlifting muscles?

    Thanks for the ideas...

    I am not sure, but i do know that deadlifts are one lift that responds great to sets of 1. Most of the workouts that I have heard of involve doings 3-5 sets of one near your max though and since I know you have a very high deadlift I am not sure how you would respond to sets you listed.

    Give it a try, the change will probably bo good anyway. for similar reasons, I've dropped my # of working sets on deads from 5, to 3, now to one heavy set of 5 and one set of 8-10 reps. I like the feel of this new approach and despite the fact that it's less working sets than usual, I'm making good gains.

    I think this will work. This will be good for a change.

    Lots of low rep sets at a lesser percentage than your maximum isn't going to sell you short in terms of strength, so I wouldn't be too concerned about that. You know what you're doing.
