Jamie Lewis, chaos and pain blogger, reckons daily deadlift will result in midback problems within a couple of weeks. Anyone have experience to contradict him? Anyone thing daily deadlift is a viable strategy?

Most I ever did was twice a week deadlifting, and it was on a tarp bar. Did it for about a year with no issues. Day 1 was multiple singles with 85-90%, and day 2 was multiple singles with ~60%.

I doubt deadlifting daily would provide much in the way of strength gains, but maybe build some toughness and endurance for sports like football, possibly. There are other ways to build that, though. Like, actually doing the two-a-day pre-season practices themselves.

Never attempted daily deadlift myself. I have had some solid runs at daily squat which generally come to an end when severe knee pain kicks in. It seemed to work though. I also got elbow pain but I found that doing a session or two with the manta ray attachment took the elbows out of it. Maybe its only use...However, I think Duane Hansen has recommended daily deadlift.

There’s this guy that goes by the name of BlackJack, BillyJack, BlackFlag, or something that has a training blog on the Internet somewhere. I seem to recall he did daily deadlifts for a week or two, or maybe a little more.

If you fuck it up it will hurt you, sure.

If you make adjustments for the frequency then it's a viable strategy.

What goals are we talking about here?

Heavy daily deadlifting will tear most people down, but if you hate Jesus enough you can manage it. Results will include a superhuman deadlift for reps, freaky back development, tough as nails character, and sore psoas.

I once did smolov for deadlifts. Pulled my hamstring (not torn, just pain) in week three or so. Buuuut....

...until then, I got stronger and the muscles just seemed to be piling on. Felt like a juggernaut.

So, high frequency pulling worked like a charm and then I got injured. I don't know if there is any correlation or if it was bad luck.

Would not be surprised if this were the common experience regarding the do X every day, twice on Monday type regimes. Everything seems to go really well but then you override some sort of protective mechanism and bop...you have an injury. This is not necessarily an argument against frequent , daily, practice of a lift, just something to be aware of. Perhaps the method is useful, even optimal, if not pursued too long? Specialise on a move for a period of time, make some gains, shift emphasis to another move....could be a good idea.

There are people now talking about full body seven days per week as optimal. Could be.

That's a pretty accurate recap Pierre !!!

You can easily vary the movement intensity and volume to make it work. As long as you keep track of the variables, you'll be fine. A template would look like:

Sunday - Medium, Monday - Heavy, Tues - light, Wed - Light, Thurs - Heavy, Friday - medium, Saturday - light

Sunday - Snatch DL 75%/5 x 3 sets
Monday - tarp DL 85%/4 x 4 sets
Tuesday - Clean RDL 70%/5 x 2 sets
Wednesday - Hack DL 70%/2 x 5 sets
Thursday - Jefferson DL 90%/1 x 6-8 sets
Friday - Clean DL 75%/5 x 3 sets
Saturday - Snatch RDL 70%/5 x 2 sets
