    Default Daily Deadlift singles at 90 to 95% for sport? Pavel? coms?

    Hey guys,

    i read on Baggett's site This Ain't Rocket Science

    re the simplicity of strength for benefits to sports.

    Once every day or two he'd go in there and pick it up off the floor for a single or double and he progressively added weight over time. In 6 months he'd put over 100 pounds on his deadlift and 6 inches on his jump and really didn't even have a routine..

    Is this a good idea Pavel or comrades?

    I play sport regularly; do running for conditioning as well as snatches and weighted pullups.

    so

    if i did a daily deadlift at 90 to 95% 1RM and added 5lbs per week for 6 months.....

    do you think this would be dangerous.

    would i do an extensive warmup or short Joint Mob drill? to deal with such heavy weights?

    i heard in whitleys interview with pavel a while back he recommended for sports, that athletes should focus on singles, doubles and triples in say the deadlift.

    So i was thinking: 1 set of 1 rep or 2 reps daily, adding 5lbs every week.

    I guess this is sorta similar to the bearpowered protocol?

    thanks guys for your opinions.

    Some people might respond well to that kind of thing, but others would get burnt out so quickly. Daily or near-daily lifting at 90%, even just one rep, isn't to be taken lightly. In fact, daily lifting of any sort is bad news for some.
    As usual: try it and see! Don't start at 90%, though. Build up from something a bit lighter, unless perhaps you're already used to lifting heavy every day, from some other program.

    Look into the singles routines by Steve Justa, you might find those interesting as well. steve justa singles - Google Search and there's write-ups of the actual routines around somewhere. Search the forums at www.powerandbulk.com, I think something was there.

    You can do low volume at high percentages frequently without too much trouble. Bob Peoples was one of the greatest dl's of his time and would lift 6 days a week after working in construction for 8-10 hours! Most importantly, when lifting heavy, be sure to warm up and ALWAYS use proper form. If the weight is too heavy to lift properly, it's too heavy to lift period.
    How quickly you add weight really depends on how advanced you are as a lifter. If your a beginner, you can add weight more frequently. As you progress to your body's upper limit, you will have to add weight less frequently.

    Hope this helps

    PS. I have done this (daily DL), for as long as a month going up to 5 plates. Just be sure to use good form
