The key is to use a load that is moderate in intensity and to perform it daily for a couple sets(no more than 10-15 total work reps). Not only will your strength increase, but your confidence will. Case in point, I pressed everyday overhead using no more than 130lbs and Benched 225 for 10 reps after not benching for over 2 month a (my best PR was 7-8).
Thanks Aaron. Just to clarify - you are saying to deadlift in some form everyday (7 days a week) for 10 - 12 reps?
