    A belated welcome to the forum! That's a text book progression (with the inevitable eventual fail)

    You wouldn't happen to be using a double overhand grip for your deadlift, would you?

    Can pretty much guarantee your recent deadlift troubles are resulting from your double overhand grip.

    There is this weird proprioceptive feedback loop that that basically prevents your body from lifting what your hands cant grip. And your deadlifts are getting heavy enough that most normal human novices will start experiencing grip issues. The end result will be weird form breakdowns and the weight feeling heavy as shit--even though it's really not that heavy for your legs and back.

    I think if you switch to over/under grip or hook grip you'll see your deadlift continue progressing nicely.

    Thanks for the tip. I ordered some wrist straps today, and I tried the over/under grip today for the deadlift. It did feel stronger, but my left elbow was tender afterwards. I suppose I wasn't keeping my left arm straight. I'll keep trying it and see how it goes.

    Well there is always hook grip if you incline towards masochism. I can do it for singles and doubles, but find sets of five too brutal on the thumbs. Others have made it work though.

    Wed 26 Jul: Squat - light day (205); Bench - 170; Deadlift - 255

    Two notes today:

    1. I went light on squats. They simply weren't recovered from Monday.
    2. I used wrist straps on the pulls today, and they seemed easy. Maybe that was partly from the straps, and maybe that was partly from going light on squats (I wasn't nearly as fatigued). I guess I'll find out Friday.
