I forgot that in the StrongLifts program you only had to deadlift 1x5 and accidentally did 5x5, will this hurt my recovery? Should I skip my next deadlift during my next workout B?

  • How much do you weigh, how tall are you, and how much are you deadlifting and squatting? Jan 25, 2012 at 3:30
  • I just started the program last monday. Squatted 50 lb and deadlifted 90 lb. I weigh about 175 lb and I'm 5'6.

Stay the course.

Your deadlifts are not heavy enough to worry. Add however much weight is called for by the program and do deadlifts 1x5 as scheduled.
