    Cassandra, I'd guess 635-640 on the stiff, poorly knurled gym bar (assuming my grip held). I don't know what that would translate to at a meet? 655-660?

    Dana, 3 is a holy number. Watch Bolton. But anything more is just useless haha.

    how essential do you consider speed pulls to your deadlift progress? i'm considering a similar program structure with biweekly pulling.

    something like:
    week a
    mon: squat 2x5,1x5+
    fri: deadlift 1x3+

    week b
    mon: squat 2x5,1x5+
    fri: squat (/w wraps) 1x3+

    I don't know that the speed pulls are better than, say, a light to moderate deadlift day for my purposes; but I do know that when I'm pulling a 2-5 rep PR at an RPE of 9.5+ every other week, it is essential that I do some kind of pulling on the non-heavy weeks that gets me some volume, keeps me neurologically efficient, and doesn't tax my recovery too hard. Speed pulls fit that bill pretty well.

    My suggestion would be to add some speed pulls or light-medium pulls (65-70% for 3 sets of 5) on week b after your squats on Friday.

    I pulled biweekly once I stalled on weekly pulling. It worked well for a while. Eventually to spur further progress I had to add back in some kind of pulling on weeks I didn't pull heavy.

    starting strength nutrition camp
    I don't think I've ever trained my squat and deadlift at a 1:1 frequency while neutral or in a surplus. Only ever briefly did that with 531 while losing 1-2lbs a week. I may just try to pull every week for a while until it stops working. Maybe alternate sumo/conventional. I'd like to try to do both on a regular basis. IDK yet. I may just skip that as it has never really worked for me above 405 for reps.
