  • Did I move up too quickly? 127.5kg to 140kg deadlift jump as novice

    Hello, I am running on novice linear progressions at the moment and would like some advice about the mechanics behind moving up in weight too quickly.

    As mentioned I am a novice and I recently worked up to a 135kg deadlift, before ending up in A&E and missing a couple workouts. I took my deadlift down a touch to work back up as I failed my 137.5kg attempt a few days after A&E. The problem lies in my last workout, I was back up to 127.5 and decided to try a 140 single. It went up so quickly I ended up doing 5. I am facing my next deadlift session tomorrow and I am unsure how to progress. Clearly I can do 140 now so it makes sense that I move from there, but do I face hitting a wall quickly?

    Would really like to understand how this works to make the correct decision.

    Thanks in advance. I know the answer may be obvious but I better to ask and learn.

    PS: The single is not a part of my deadlift programming. My bro was about and I wanted to try my first 140 pull.

    I'm not a coach, but you'll probably have to give additional details (how long have you been on LP, what did you do before running this program, age, weight, height, etc.) for someone to offer a more insightful suggestion.

    Did you grind out 5 on the deadlift?

      If you are a novice, doing a linear progression, and did 140 last time, continue from there. I would leave the thinking to when you decide to change programs.

        The lift is on my instagram page of the same name if anyone wants to see. It moved well enough I believe.

        Been on LP for 2 months. Inconsistent and short lived LPs previous to this that allowed me to start this LP a bit higher but as far as training adaptations go I am still in my novice phase.

        I am 28, 6ft, 75kg/166 pounds currently.

          While I agree that I will continue from 140 most likely, why should I "leave the thinking" for later? I see to reason to ever delay learning.

            Agreed regarding to learning. But apply these efforts to long term programming, or nutrition, or technical aspects. It's not worth to overthink an LP.

          You'll get some good feedback on the Barbell Medicine group FB page. And if you do that, you'll want to take video from the side.

          You already know you need to set your back better. From what I see, you don't ever set your back and your hips seem too low. I always think "show your butt to the wall" and that seems to help. Much more legit feedback if you post in FB.

            i dont currently have a facebook account maybe it is time i do that.

            back setting is definitely an issue, ill keep trying to cue myself. as for the hips what do you notice that i dont? i see that i drop them a touch between reps and maybe it is a bad habit but it looks like i bring them up before, or maybe as i initiate the rep. is it that i do it as i initiate? appreciate your time, thanks!

            this specific deadlift is where i started to wonder if maybe it was a bit of kyphosis. not saying that to pardon a technical issue as my posts show i am always trying to remind myself, but it has been a losing battle so far

            NB: I pulled 142.5 today and it was fine. If anyone reads this with similar concerns seems like the best thing to do is just try it with your best technique.
