Most people who use it eventually stop, not because of lack of progress, but to change things up more.
    The amount of weight one can deadlift goes up indefinitely with this method, but people stop? At what new PR do they get bored and switch to different types of programming? I call shenanigans.

    Once the weight got really heavy to me on the deadlift once a week was more than enough. Deadlift day is always my favorite.

    With a weight that heavy (wrt bw) you might be ready for a new program. If you're no longer making linear gains you might want to look into wendler 531

    Believe me, if you reach deadlifting with 180-200 kg, than making trying NOT to make weird faces becomes impossible....

    Yes, they're of great help, I think. But don't use them for all your sets, just the really heavy ones.

    Learning a lot through all the comments on here.

    I need to go back to my good sleeping habits because lately I've been going to sleep later even when I'm starting to feel sleepy. It's hard when you want to stay awake to learn new stuff and socialize online.

    I'm going to up my cals and see how that goes.

    If I were to cut back on my DL and do them once a week, how would I work that into 5x5 StrongLifts? One week its DL one day, and the next week it is 2 days.

    If you reach the end of a novice linear progression, I'd opine that Stronglifts 5x5 is no longer appropriate programming. I'm not saying you're there yet, but you might be. Get your sleep and diet in order and see if you can recover between workouts. If not, I'm a big fan of Wendler's 5/3/1. Get the book, but use the calculator at blackironbeast.com

    I don't know if I make faces but I do sometimes make noises. Sometimes I even get actual tears after I'm done deadlifting.
