My body is definitely not adapted to deadlifting for volume. I had the deadlift flu something fierce after this session. On the bright side it actually feels like I’m building my deadlift now vs just pulling one heavy set a week. No wonder I was never very good at deadlifts. I hardly ever practiced them! Still working on low-back control. It’s getting better. I did end up losing extension a bit on some of these pulls. Ended up accidentally stiff legging some of these too. My sequence needs to be: set low-back, big breath, drop knees, chest-up, pull.
