Dead lifts done on the day of "Mary" as a make-up, I used my 1 rep max to calculate %'s, inadvertently.
175/195/215 x 8

Form was safe but definitely not ideal from reps 15-20.
I want to make a note here in case people see the 20 reps on my final set and think I expect everyone to chase that number when doing heavy deadlifts.
On the contrary I was taught a long time ago that there is a general safety rule that advises never going above 10 reps when executing heavy deadlift sets. Oops.
From now on I will abide by and help reinforce that same principle when our athletes (and myself) are training heavy. This is a deadlift specific rule for some reason and I am going to dig up some reasoning/research to validate it.
