Well, it just so happens that doing accessory work this way supports my strongman training. Metabolic training and all.

What is your current max DL?

I just looked back in my journal and this was the last time I did deadlifts (last lift is a PR, but I could have pulled a little more):

6/19/08 Deadlifts - 1X5 275, 5X1 315, 325, 335, 345, 365

So you have been off of deadlifts for a month? Might not really be an issue so long as you have been going after your squats with gusto. It will be interesting to see if you can get there. 40-ish lbs is a pretty hefty jump, but it isn't impossible by any means. Well, at least not at this stage of your training. Give it another few years and 40lbs in 2 years time might feel like winning the lottery

Ross, keep doing what you are doing and pulling 400 will happen before you know it. Good work and keep it going.
