I am mostly curious about your experience with deadlifts. I began doing them for the first time a few months ago using 20lbs dumbbells. After getting more comfortable with the form and seeking a trail with a trainer to ensure I was doing them correctly, I began using a bar and am now doing 115lbs. I am doing 2 sets of 5 reps.
So I have a few questions about your experiences:
1. Do you find it is more important/helpful/exciting to do more reps or higher weight?
2. How quickly have you been able to advance with heavier weights?
3. How often a week do you do them? I really enjoy them but I don't want to overdo it.
4. I have seen videos and people doing the deadlift with both hands facing the same way on the bar and some with one hand under the bar and one hand over top of the bar... does this make a difference or just personal preference?
