Trap bar deadlift

My workout a few days ago was trap bar deadlifts and dips.
The previous workout where I did the above routine was 18 days before and I used 375 x 9 good smooth reps, but since I did not want to go any higher in reps I added 30 lbs and did 5 reps with 405, and boy was that heavy but good and smooth reps too. I could have added less weight but oh well as long as I got five good reps for deads I′m ok with it.
My dips though were a different story, same weight as before 85 lbs added to bw but only managed 5 reps instead of six that was performed previously. I gave it my all though.
Hopefully my reps go up on next workout for both exercises. We′ll see

Yeah, evaluate, but don′t worry if one workout you miss a rep or so. Maybe it was the heavier deadlift weight. See how it works next workout. Resist, however, the temptation to change things too soon!

You could try dips first if you are worried about making progress
