We come a long way from beginner to expert training. Although, this deadlift workout does not have all the frills & thrills like some more advanced programs.
But we all need to remember, we were once beginners and had to start somewhere. This beginner deadlift workout is designed for building strength and learning the fundamentals.
Overview of The Beginner Workout Program
To put it to you straight & simple, a beginner workout we recommend is none other than the Mark Rippetoe’s 5×5 routine.
Basic enough for beginners and highly customizable for advanced lifters.
Essentially the plan is 5 sets for 5 reps…easy? Yes, hard? Somewhat…
Starting the workout, you will need to know your 1RM which you can check down below.
To get a good idea on how this routine will go, let’s say your 1RM is 280lbs. The weights you would use will be as followed:
1) 130 x 5 Reps
2) 160 x 5 Reps
3) 190 x 5 Reps
4) 220 x 5 Reps
5) 250 x 5 Reps
Once you are comfortable to the point where your 1RM is easy, start adding 10lbs to each set each different week.
If you happen to find yourself missing targets, back off a bit to deload, then add weight.
This routine is as basic as first grade math: however, Mark Rippetoe’s starting strength is no joke.
Many trainers have had great success and results with his system. His starting strength book is considered to be the bible for strength addicts.
