  • Quick starting strength question

    If the last time I could only deadlift 1x4 instead of 1x5, should I add weight or keep it the same?
    well then

    Oh well, I gotta leave now so I'll just keep the weight the same
    well then

      I'd keep it the same and try to do 5 next time.
      If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

          you could easily put this all in that other thread. You also should use google a bit more often, I'm not trying to be a jerk, but you'd get answers a lot faster that way rather than wait for the handful of people here that do SS.
          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

              Most of the time I use google first but I can never find specific answers and I also post it on the SS forums but I have never received an answer there
              well then

                I'm not trying to be a jerk either but it probably won't be long before that starts happening here as well.

                  I am assuming that you are only doing one set of deadlifts. Keep the weight the same, once you can do 5 reps at that weight, then you can add 5-10lbs (preferably 10 if you think you can handle it) in the next session.

                    I'm quoting RR but this is also in response to the OP.

                    If you don't hit the reps you keep the weight the same until you do. If you fail to hit your reps in 3 consecutive workouts then you need to do a reset.

                    And if you're having trouble hitting your reps, then when it is time to increase the weight do it in 5lb increments. If it starts getting hard to hit your reps with 5lb increments then decrease the amount of weight you add each time. You may have to get creative with how you do that (I use a 1lb wrist weight and a 1/4lb sandbag on each side). The goal is to add weight each workout for as long as you can, no matter how small the increase.
                    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.
