    Does anyone here deadlift to failure?

    Does anyone here deadlift to failure?

    Right now I'm doing 4x5 all while increasing the weight each set. But I was thinking of doing 3 sets of 5 and a fourth set to failure (which should reach about 5 reps) all while increasing the weight each set.

    Is this a good idea or is this just asking for injury?

    Failure will occur, usually, when you lose neutral alignment of your spine or your hips raise faster than your shoulders.

    Agreed. Its hard to strictly define failure for deadlifts, because you can continue to lift after perfect form has gone and that is when the slouching can cost big time.
