    Default Splitting your Deads into Halting Deads and Rack Pulls

    My last working set of 5 on the deadlift was 495x5. I am expirimenting with Mark's suggestion of dividing the pull into two parts to make recovery cycles more manageable and so as not to interfere as much with squatting 2-3 times per week.

    I believe that starting strength and/or PP both say that you ought to be able to do 8's with whatever your best set of 5 was on deads. I am nowhere near able to do that and in fact I am quickly realizing how weak I am off the floor. The rack pulls however I pulled a very easy set of 5 at 525. Should I even bother with the rack pulls or just focus on doing halting deads after every squat session?

    If its helpful, my deadlift has almost always been exactly 100lbs ahead of my squat for as long as I can remember.

    Your floor pull will catch up. Make DAMN sure your low back is flat.
