Agreed on the above sentiments that if the pins are set too high, it defeats any carryover to DLs you might get.
On my dynamic days, I'd do band resistance deads. New gym has chains so I must use those to mix things up.

RP told me that when I drop calories I need to up the volume but drop intensity. And if I'm not very sore after my workout I'm loosing muscle. My intensity is probably still too high, but if i'm setting PRs I can just keep going for it I guess.
Who am I but saying if you aren't sore after workout means you are losing muscle is an absurdity. Yes, they typically go hand-in-hand (and I'll give Coldsnap benefit of doubt on the generality) but that is certainly not an accurate gauge IMO. Want to have sore muscles? Go do slow eccentric movements and claim it's an excellent routine because your body hurts.
As far on a cut, I'd be more concerned about total poundage. Either do your heavy weight for fewer sets or lighter weight at your same sets. Whichever your program calls for should be acceptable, but total poundage is the key.
