    The Recovery Intrusive Deadlift

    .
    The deadlift is a "takes more than it gives" movement. It's recovery intrusive, possibly more than any other compound movement. No lift causes a greater degree of "workout hangover" than heavy and hard deadlifting. Why? Most coaches say it's because of the direct attachment of the hands to the bar, and the effect that has on the spine and autonomic nervous system. They also believe this causes a high degree of stimulation to the sympathetic nervous system, depressing the parasympathetic nervous system, causing a massive inroad to systemic recovery.
    .
    All of this is theory, but it feels true. Especially after a heavy day of deadlifting. But theory aside, science shows us that volume isn't actually the driver for strength gains. The neurological adaption to moving loads with greater speed, or moving greater intensities in a lift, are the primary drivers for strength improvement. There's literally zero reasons to be doing highly-volumized deadlift routines. Same for trying to do high-rep (12-plus) working sets of deadlifts. Both will drive recovery into the ground.
    .
    If you're looking to build maximal strength in the deadlift then sets of three to five reps should be your bread and butter.

    True, true. Heavy deadlifts are taxing as hell. Good advice bro.

    I have seen kids come in and just slam the bar. If you cannot control the negative aspect of a dead lift, you need to drop the weight or just get out of the gym.

    Yes. You can always add other , lighter , less taxing variations of the dead. I say the go to would be the Romanian Dead is the best. Snatch grip is up there.
