    last week, i deadlifted 315lb max, and do x3 reps of 295lb.

    i could barely do 2 reps of 295lb today, wtf is wrong with me?

    last weeks dl day was wednesday, and my workout was on the following monday. saturday was a fairly large chest day as well and yes, my chest still had recovering pains when i worked out monday.

    are there exercises that shouldnt be done within the day or something?:hsd:

    As long as you didn't do lower back there shouldn't be a problem. If you were still recovering from the chest workout your body probably wasn't able to put 100% into your deadlift.

    you probably are doing it with shitty form. Trust me, fix it asap before your lower back gets injured. Also you are stupid if you trained chest on saturday, and then again on monday (thats what i sounds like from what your wrote at least)

    i didnt train chest again.

    when you lift the bar, is your back suppose to be arched and leaning backward as you pull? and having your back straight as possible is the proper form, correct? how close do you get to the bar before pull?

    Shoulders behind bar, back straight, pull the bar straight up almost dragging up the shins/thighs.

    sounds normal to me...3 reps last week 2 this week...deadlift is an exercise that depends on if you are having a good day or a bad day...hydration, caffeine, etc

    word. when i plan them, seems like i suck at it. but when i feel like doing them on a good day before a meal, i could lift some heavy weights.
