Building strength with dead-lifts

Some background info on today’s session

Today’s session is all about building my dead-lift strength in preparation for an upcoming Powerlifting Australia competition.

My dead-lifts are gradually getting heavier the closer I get to competition day, while my reps are decreasing.

My top set this session was a 275kg triple followed by back-off sets. I then followed this with Romanian dead-lifts for posterior chain gains and some upper back work with lat pull-downs and prone rows.
