i stopped deadlifting

I stopped deadlifting for 2-3 months now.  Would this be detrimental to my vertical?  My main exercises are full squat paused, leg curls, and 45 degree hyper-extensions with 30 lb dumbells.
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

i wish my gym had a 45-degree hyper.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

The best thing I ever did for my vertical was to stop deadlifting and squat an extra day per week.


I don't do that anymore though because my hamstrings are LACKING and I want to prevent injury from muscle imbalances. And also, I kinda just want to have a big deadlift.


Now I do this:

Monday:
Squat 1x5
45 degree back extensions 3x10

Friday:
deadlift 1x5
45 degree back extensions 3x10

It will give my hamstrings time to catch up. Currently my atg squat and dead are equal at 315x5. I'd like deadlift to be about 15% higher than my atg squat though (just a ballpark figure).
I'm LAKERS from The Vertical Summit

I do leg curls and my back feels great now that i don't DL.   But i stopped half squatting too, and the only squat i do is full and paused now.

lol back when i stopped squating and went deadlifting, could really feel the glutes. lol too bad i neglected my hip angle and turned more of a lower back workout.  Got a fkign big imbalance between my left and right side of the lower back now and deadlift made the difference biger lol
