Yes, we really are deadlifting every day


I think I might have done a poor job explaining our TSC prep program. We really are deadlifting every day. For this program we are maximizing on frequency, which means that we need to cut the weight and volume. So...these deadlifts shouldn't be heavy. You should never be close to failure. You should always have one or two left in the tank. Even if you think you won't complete a rep, don't attempt it. You will have another chance tomorrow.  Don't feel obligated to follow the prescribed percentages exactly. 

I wrote the percentages for someone who has a really good idea of what their 1RM is and knows what they'll lift in April at the TSC. If you're still figuring out your weights, be sure to err on the light side. We'll make up for it in frequency, and you'll have a ton of perfect reps under your belt on TSC day.

Don't let your short term ego get in the way of a long term success.
