A while ago I asked on TF if Smolov routine could be applied to DL. The reply was that high volume for DL is not good. So what's the deal? Just curious.
The percentages of 1RM on this routine are on the low to very low side. Also, it is important to note that this is not a strength building routine, but a conditioning routine. I have not read the thread you're referring to, but suspect the anti-volume sentiment is geared toward a strength building focus and I would agree that's not a good idea, in general. For example, I did the RSR for deadlift and it was not a good idea at all. With that said, GGVDLR would work well as a 4-5 week prep routine for a SQ or DL strength building cycle, IMO. IME, it is very good stuff for your wind, grip and attitude. You will also get some swole on, so GS'ers beware.
EDIT: for us Average Joe's, the 531 'money set' in deadlift is fine, too. Speaking for myself, Pavel and 'the party' had me pretty paranoid about more than 5 reps on the DL, but the 531 money set is good juju and I know I've hit around 20 reps on DL for that set.
