Tip: 12 Minutes of Singles

Set a timer and ramp up your deadlifting volume with Sadiv sets. Here's how.

High volume deadlifting – but not necessarily high-rep sets – can turn you into a monster. If you're not deadlifting on the reg, you're missing out on a huge opportunity.

Sadiv Sets

Build appreciable deadlift volume without crushing your body by using Sadiv sets:

  1. Load a bar with 60% of your deadlift 1 RM.
  2. Set a timer for 12 minutes.
  3. Perform as many singles as possible in 12 minutes, shooting for a minimum of 20 reps. Each rep should be performed with maximal speed from the floor. Release the bar between sets, rest until you're ready, and repeat.
  4. Once 12 minutes are up, record your score. Try to beat that the next time around, with good form of course.
