Hit Deadlift Max (490lbs), now what? High reps?
I just maxed out at 490lbs for my deadlift. Could barely lock it out. I've been working up doing very low reps (8, 5, 1, 1 reps) and now I just completely hit a plateau.
I usually do 4 working sets for deadlifts and then 4 sets of glute/ham raises, plus other back exercises (pull ups, rows).
Just wondering what you would recommend? Higher reps now, other exercises. Thanks.

Look into the 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler.
I am on that program and recently did 430lb x 5. My previous best before starting the program was 395lb x 1. I hope to work up to a single around what you just hit.
Nice work btw.
