Post your actual routine. You are either going to stall because your routine doesn't facilitate the proper means to go past 505, your form might be off or your nutrition is off.

Why not switch things up in your routine? Sometimes variation can help break thru the barrier

You do that same workout every week? Start alternating a heavy week with a light week- light being 60-70% of max for multiple sets of ten...

I agree.... pounding them every week (especially without gear) can lead to some problems over time. I'd definitely switch it up week to week or at least every 4 weeks.

Have you ever tried "shoe top" deads? We would stand on a couple plates and use 25s or 35s instead of 45s and get to where the bar goes down almost to where it would be on your feet, extending the range a bit. Also doing trap bar deads and keeping your back more upright and just driving with your hips will help getting it off the floor. I pulled 585 at 19 after a year of dedicated deadlift training. I added 100 pounds with the routine I was using. No juice.

Not bad for the volume, but its good idea to not max every time. Do lighter deads then next time do a heavier dead session

Because it's part of a conjugate method of lifting. Basically you utilize exercises that closely simulate one of the lifts you are looking to advance in. It's the same for their benching, they utilize pin presses, floor presses, board presses, chain and band presses and reverse band presses for benching. Different lifts will stimulate the body in different ways, but as long as the dynamics of the lifts are close enough it will contribute to a bigger number on one of the compound lifts.

For deadlifting hyper extensions, GHR and pull throughs will all help to contribute to a larger deadlift even if you don't train your deadlift because of the carry over. On the other side of the coin, having a big squat will probably make your leg extension weight shoot up, but leg extensions will not contribute to a large squat.
