Early to mid 40s when I was doing that modified BEAR, but the 531 BBB as mentioned in my earlier post was about 12 months ago at 47 years old.dkay wrote: ↑Mon May 27, 2019 12:22 amMy god, that is insane volume. How old are you? I'm 54. I recently ditched the 50/20 deadlifts for 4 or 5 sets to failure with the same weight - so now instead of sets of 7 to 50, I'm doing something like 13, 10, 8, 5 and quitting around 30-35 total reps.terra wrote: ↑Sun May 26, 2019 12:48 pmSame here. That 531 wasn’t happening in conjunction with any real BJJ training effort. I was only going once a week, just to stay in touch and have a roll.Sangoma wrote: ↑Sat May 25, 2019 3:28 amI find it hard to do any meaningful volume of lifting on top of four sessions of BJJ a week. For now I have stuck to deadlift singles several times a week,
A + A kettle bell stuff when I can and pull-ups. At my level I do use considerable strength in my wrestling, and this little extra seems to keep me a little stronger.
I found it ok. But I also used to do a modified version of Pavels BEAR program against the clock:
5RM @100%, then 5RM @ 90%, then up to 70 reps at about 75% in 15 minutes (in 5 rep sets).
So I kind of trained to do a lot of DL volume over the years.
Those 70 rep deadlifts were with 100kg, not a huge load. Although I’m only a little bloke at 61-64kg, so it was substantial for me.
That sort of training against the clock seems to be the only thing that works for me.
