I've always been decently strong for my size since failing to gain weight through just eating more I heard that it might be better to gain weight through weight training. In my first deadlift session my PB was 75kg. Is that good what should my targets be.

Tough question because style and form are also issues that affect your lift. For example, a sumo lift will be easier than a strict deadlift. I've seen huge lifts on YT and all because they do that crazy wide stance and middle bar grip.

Anyway, let's assume you're doing strict form, 75kg for a 45kg frame is not bad. Like all things in life, the more you practice the more you can lift. I've found that wrist straps are essential to heavier lifts so get yourself those if you don't have them. Some people swear by a back brace but I've always tended to shy away from those because they affect my stance.

Your target should be twice your body weight IMHO. As an example my PB is 200kg and I weigh 100kg. I don't do 10 reps at that weigth, it's always a 1RM, but it's a target.

Good luck!
