    HI,

    I have recently gotten back on track with lifting.
    Started on 10/3 with
    SQ - 135*5*3
    DL - 155*3*5

    as of 11/9 I reached
    SQ - 265*5*3
    DL 340*5

    I also alternate between BP and PR every workout.
    3 weeks into training I incorporated chins. Currently I alternate between DL and CH as follows (this has me doing DL Thursday and Monday with no CH inserted in between)

    Monday - DL (adding 5#)
    Tuesday - CH
    Thursday - DL (adding 5#)

    I am still successful in adding weight to my DL and completing 5 reps but they are getting heavy.
    Any suggestions if and how I should adjust my DL program?

    Typically if something is working, you should not change it. When the weight gets heavy, your first temptation is going to be to make a change. It's okay that it's hard. Let it be a little hard.

    Age/weight/sex?

    Can you briefly explain why you can't train with at least a day of rest between each training session?

    Can you fill out what you do for the other lifts as well on M/Tu/Thu? It's not clear to me, based on your description.

    Thanks for the response

    Here is a link to my log SN Training Log - Google Sheets

    Per the blue book I added chins pretty early on. I still wanted to get all the possible gains of my DL so I kept that in at twice a week adding 5# each. My thought regarding the rest between DL sessions is, that with the weekend between my two consecutive DL sessions I probably get enough rest (I like doing DL on Sunday's for an unrelated reason).

    As a rule, I don't look at Gdrive when people post it here. I just wanted to see your basic set up.

    My question was more, why are you not training M/W/F or Tu/Th/Sat or M/W/Sat or something like that? Why are you training two consecutive days in a row?

    I would add power cleans to your Tuesday workout.

    After deadlighting twice weekly becomes unmanageable, switch to deadlifting once a week.
