I don't see why your form would break down more on singles that volume? my first few are good but by the end of 8+ reps I am a bit sloppy.
I personally enjoy higher rep deads. My last "work" set of deads was 325 for 5/5/10. I wouldn't say my form goes to **** on the last set, but, it's probably not as great as if I do one single. With that said, I have been doing high rep sets for a while, and I like to think that I've been training for them, so I may have better results than people who are doing them once in a while, and staying in the 3-5 rep range most of the time.

Progress: Officially signed my offer letter and am moving 3,000 miles to San Francisco. Hopefully now that my mind is cleared, and I'm done the majority of my work load for the semester I can focus on my training until nationals (3.5 weeks). Test day today for squat. Going to about 98%
Squatted 7 tonight. Cut it a bit high because my knees were wrapped so tight I shook the whole way down. Shot up fast as hell though.
Is there a reason to do a half squat (approx 45° above horizontal) followed by a calf raise? It seemed like he didn't know what he was doing, but maybe I just don't know?

X- Fly out here last weekend of June. I won't be competing but we'll have about a dozen or so team members at a local meet. (eh, just remembered about your supplements)
auto- WEST COAST = BEST COAST
Progress: 5x5x100s. I like doing these. Started doing some declines and high-rep stuff as well. Gotta get my bench up.
It's all about squats and deads.
I'll be in las vegas mid july that's the only time I go near the west coast (going for 3 trips this year baby!)
and don't knock my supplements, just because you compete in natty events doesn't mean the guys are all natural. what do they test? 2%?? LOL
American records are tested. Anyone putting up out of the ordinary numbers gets tested at the local level.
It's all about squats and deads.

Just got back from Burlington, VT coaching some people through a powerlifting meet. My lifters went 1 and 2 out of 3. One of my girls also had the biggest opening squat despite being in the lightest weight class. Pretty good weekend overall.
Benched 375 raw tonight. Went really smooth, had a little left in the tank
Tried hack squats for the first time tonight; worked up to 225 then 3x5'ed it.
Crappy form here , she did much better at 245 .
There you go.
Some of my work
