I just failed a 455lb dead lift, tried to down scale to a 405lb which I've been able to pull 5 of previously and failed at that too. How long do I rest prior to reattempting a previous max (405lb at 5 reps) and then reattempt the 455 level lift? Is it a week? or more? or less?
If you're following a regular weightlifting plan, you're likely weightlifting every other day. As a result, you should simply resume on your next workout day.
