I know generally on the heavy lifts, one is supposed to lift between the 3-5 rep range. So, if I'm deadlifting 315 for 3 sets of 5 reps, but I feel I can go a little heavier, should I do it? And if I went heavier, with lesser reps, would that be good on a cut? I guess my question really is, would lifting 315 for 5 reps yield results similar to say 350 for 3 reps? I'm just so used to trying to nail the 5 reps a set

I say go for 3 reps with the heavier weight and sometimes even throw in some heavier singles. You may find you can gain some strength even while cutting. Anything over 5 reps is probably a waste while cutting.

@dserious111 if it feels weird I guess its not heavy enough
Just make sure your form is alright so you dont get injured.

The way id look at it is i would go as heavy as possible for a minimum of 3 reps, if I can do a weight for over 5 reps then it's too light. In conclusion id do the 3
