DEADLIFT! Thedude1967 7 8 monthsThedude1967 (44): @NorIda , @jostrosky I welcome all critiques, this is how I learn. Both of you have valid points and I will work on them. Give me a month or so to work on it and I’ll post a cleaner pull!!

Deadlift form? Fletch7878 7 1 yearEricleader22 (1): Just be very careful deadlifting, you can really injure your lower back badly. I've done that before and was out a few weeks :( Just make sure you have the perfect form for the exercise.
Noise: Home Gym DL w/ Rubber Bumper plates mikew 2 2 yearswannabemuscular (33216): Looks good @mikew. You seemed to put it down hard and it wasn't too loud at all. Is that just carpet on concrete? I know you plan to build a platform, but will you leave the carpet over the rest of the area? My basement gym room is very tight carpet on concrete and I like it.
Trap bar Hambo 3 2 yearsmikew (11493): @Hambo your question makes no sense. Why not just poke around the web? It appears that the terms are used interchangeably. Here is a video of a Trap Bar *and* a Hex Bar... it's a Hex Trap bar:
How is my ratio? Townson 7 2 yearsYeags (1144): That's a big boy👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Sumo Deadlift - Technique NaturalBrawn 1 2 yearsNaturalBrawn (199): I did a video with one of the best natural powerlifters I know, deadlifts 900lbs+, we covered technique and a bit of background on the guy. Think the first half could be really useful for some of the newer dudes, and his attitudes are pretty old school no nonsense (not that im 100% aligned on the macros :) ).
best strength hypertrophy routine ?NEWUSER ihsanb 12 2 yearsjamiee321 (4): Totally up to personal preference. My current program is 10X10 with other bits and pieces thrown in for extra volume :) I based my last back day off this So it was basically 10-12 rep range and giant sets.

One day of strength training while bodybuil? Spencer1104 11 2 yearsJsn3004 (3265): You gaining size depends on whether you are or are not in a caloric surplus. Just because you're doing a "bodybuilding type routine" doesn't mean you'll gain more size. You should run 5/3/1 Boring But Big. Eat in a slight caloric surplus, just like the FAQ stated (assuming you read it). You also get to put in your bodybuilding movements like barbell/dumbbell curls, tricep pushdowns, and facepulls.
Back and Leg day 1 or 2 a week? Spencer1104 3 2 yearsframe (73): everything works, do whatever you like more. you can hit body part to failure so it will recover in one week - you will grow, if you like more half-ass workouts not going to failure on one of your gym sessions - you can hit larger body parts twice per week and you still will grow ( you must be able to know your body possibilities perfectly in this case). It all depends on how you like to train, muscle growth occurs if you give muscle enough work...
Doing back workout with back issues... Spencer1104 2 2 yearseknight (58109): I would seek physical therapy through your GP or ortho doc, which will be covered by insurance, not chiro care. -3X
Pre-meet programming Thomas_Rascon 5 2 yearsBeans (4204): The amount of time lifting is a big factor in how strong someone is. I wish I started lifting at 15, but didn't start until I was in college. One thing you'll learn is that nobody worth a damn cares about how strong beginners are. They appreciate that you like the sport and work hard. I think you're numbers are good for 15, but never worry about not being strong enough. Just lift consistently and do you. I don't compete, but you have nothing...

I was planning on doing a meet on nvember, but will se, how i will be feeling.
Which workout split? A7102009 7 3 yearsHamb0 (2893): Seconding this; if you're able to train 7 days a week, the quality of the training probably isn't very high, and there probably isn't being presented much of an overload.

Bulking/mass tips Rugbyguy 8 3 yearsmikew (11493): In an ideal world, track your macros accurately and eat at a 10% surplus as recommended by @forgottenpass In practice, that might be hard to do.

DL and S Hambo Jump to first page58Jump to last page 3 yearsNorIda (46957): @Hambo nah bro. Muscles are only soft when the glycogen levels are low. That's one of the great reasons to eat carbs to be "fuller" that along with muscle density will prevent any muscles to be soft at the touch.

Deadlift form? Jiaxie97 10 4 yearsJiaxie97 (10): Thanks guys! So start hips lower, and as I move past the knees, just think about "standing?" Sorry I've been asking so many questions by the way, I'm the only one on my family or friend group who lifts and I'm sort of going solo lol so I need as much help as I can get. Is there anything else off wrong with my form besides hip position and Hyperextension at top?

PleSe critique deadlift form! Jiaxie97 3 4 yearsLVjack (2749): I watched the video again a couple times and it does look like the bar is staged too far forward on your initial pull. I'm going to assume you press into your toes really hard and your heels slightly raise up though most of the lift. Correct me if I'm wrong. First off I would suggest having a ritual set up that you preform the same each and every time. For example; when I squat I grab the bar with my left and first then my right. Then I...
eating/drinking on a PL comp leanr0x 6 4 yearscraig (835): I'm close to the 93kg limit so eating before weigh in is usually out for me. I weigh in and then smash pop tarts, bcaas, bananas and some sweets. I've actually not eaten much when the comp has started which is probably a mistake, I think the last one I ate a chocolate flapjack and had a few energy drinks.

USAPL Prep 18 weeks Eat2Trainn247 Jump to first page50Jump to last page 4 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): Bench press seems to be the most difficult challenge thus far. Nailed 240 for 6x4 last week but missed my 4th rep at 245 on 2nd set this week and decreased weight to 235 for remaining sets, hitting 5 on my 6th set.

deadlift form check leanr0x 11 5 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): When there is a lot of weight on the bar, the bar bends. Its counterproductive to your goal of pulling/pushing straight upwards. Before you initiate your rep, set/squeeze lats and then grip the hell out of the bar and explode upwards.

deadlifts mnussbaum01 14 5 yearsATN_Coaching (1582): Just my .01 thought but you can get hyper development from both sumo and conventional stance and grip. When I speak of hyper development I speak on quads, hams, glutes, erectors, and more. Now with that there are many variables to consider in regards to overall goal, individual anatomy, and more. I personally stick with and highly recommend conventional deads from a physique development standpoint as they can aid in more back development...

Rack pulls - good deadlift accessory lift? BaiTu 23 6 yearsBaiTu (3096): I've got three active threads on this general subject right now so instead of starting a new thread I'll just post this question right here. Yesterday I was deadlifted 160 kilograms. (Two weeks ago I attempted 180 kilograms and the bar pulled me more than I pulled the bar.) Anyway, my pr is 185, I did that last December and then my scheduled got hectic, got a little less regular in the gym and lost a little bit of strength. Most importantly...
More deadlift questions BaiTu 9 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Agreed. Negative isnt as imprtant in strength training.. aka Drop Dat Bitch. In hypertrophy, the negative and use of TUT is what counts.
Deadlifting Progression Hewy007 10 6 yearsBaiTu (3096): I don't know if you read what you wrote or not but you contradicted yourself a few times. In your opinion, you're not supposed to bleed? Why not? Simply put, you're supposed to drag the bar straight up your shins when you deadlift. You may bleed and you may not. The best thing to do if you don't want to bleed is wear pants.

Deadlifts _RudeCrew 7 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Conventionals are an all body lift and are only primarily a back exercise if u lift the weight as so. i.e rack pulls, Even when touching weight at the bottom instead of resetting at the bottom, but this will only shift the weight intention somewhat as it will still obviously target ur hams & glutes, but the exercise should be performed by sinking hips down and driving through heels. In reference to ur question, where do u want to use this...

1 rep deadlift.. jonrivs49 29 6 yearsmikew (11493): @jonrivs49 You can measure your progress against the numbers in this chart: PS- Post up a vid - you will get constructive feedback. As long as the vid doesn't involve a strap on. Because that would just be uncomfortable for everyone. Ha ha ha.
Bad Deadlift Form GStarRaw 9 6 yearsmikew (11493): @GStarRaw what happens when you try heavier weight?? The tight hamstring excuse is very odd since you can bend your knees to get into position on the start, unlike a Romanian DL or Straight Leg DL. Even a novice lifter at your bw should be able to pull 250-275 lbs. for a 1RM. Use this chart as a reference - - click around that site, I think they have a chart in KGs too.
Deadlift Technique AarronStenner 7 6 yearsThedude67 (3088): @NorIda This is awesome advice! It's actually going to apply to me right now also. I did deads the other day for my max and pushed myself into more reps than I've ever done with that weight, but my hams were really sore the next couple of days. They basically turned into stiffed legged deads...I need to drop the weight and focus on form also...

**Romanian DeadLifts - Back or Legs ?? FiremanSi 30 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @Dukenheimer Agreed. If you lock out ur legs then lean back using mostly back on the hip hinge and not the momentum of the lift.. eventually ur lower back will give out.. happened to me when i pushed it too much on a 180kg lift on d 4th rep. Good night.. ping. The weight drops dramtically when u try extend legs and hips forward at same time... I find i have to drop the weight for each rep to reset. Being nearly 6'4 doesnt help. :)

Help with Deadlift Form Please joe2401 8 6 yearsAverageJoe (4510): A tip I could give you: when you lift the weight from the floor, keep your head in line with your spine: dont look up front, look at the floor in front of you. when you get the barbell down, your head is perfectly aligned, but then you tilt it back to lift again.

But dude It really did look good, you have a solid base and back looked sturdy. The only thing I would says maybe a little less hyperextension at the end of your lift. Also, maybe re-set the weight each time and make sure to pull the slack out of the bar. But dude it really did look solid man. Atleast your not going to snap some shit up like some deads...

Also, become a man, lose the straps and invest in some chalk. ; ) Solid lift!

Sumo deadlift In4gainZ 13 7 yearsSimplyHarvey (52): Practice, Practice, Practice - I think avoiding belts is a good idea to begin with because it forces you to develop good form without assistance. Belts can come later
How low should hips be on a deadlift? DFMaster240 16 7 yearsNyko (2884): Deadlifts while being a compound lift will still put a great deal of emphasis on your lumbar. It is also typically the first thing to fatigue and break form during your set. I'm not sure what you're looking for as far as hamstring stimulation etc but if that's your primary concern... Romanian Dead Lifts or Stiff-Legged Dead Lifts will hit hamstrings better then traditional.

And if the straps are hurting your wrists it's because they are not on correctly. They should not be wrapped tightly are your wrist. They should be sitting on your hands at the bottom of your palms. Not loosely, but not too tight either. And I wouldn't rely on straps or wrist straps at all. They should only be used twards the end of...

Smith Machine Deadlift BaiTu 15 7 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): That would be the bin, I really don't think smith machine is good for anything, there is always a better alternative for anything you want to do, the movement plane it locks you into in general is harmful and pointless. Sure it can be safe but when you can do things that are better and inherently safer then the machine has no use.

Pain in abs after deadlifts haole 4 7 yearshaole (2109): I did try breathing differently too though. I normally hold my breath at the very beginning of the lift and exhale as I move the weight up but I tried holding my breath through the whole lift on a couple lifts to see how it felt and I think that's what did it. I'm gonna start doing some leg raises though
warmup + 8,5,5,3 reps on deadlift good for h luka5z 2 7 yearsmikew (11493): This is similar to 5/3/1 - which is what I do - works really well. Not sure what your 1RM max is but 5/3/1 will have you below your 1RM. It's counterintuitive to "go light" but it works well over the long term. Throw in a deload week every 4th week too.

Back workout Archdacko 8 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): If you worried about deadlift form, study this clickable text Deadlifts are a must - master them!
Deadlift - beginner Noobie93 4 7 yearsjeeza_1234 (279): Youll feel your lower back being hit well. 3 key excerises: - bench deadlift squats also throw in bent over rows help the back out :) Most important thing when doing squats or deadlifts even if you are a beginner start low weight to learn technic. Proper technic and gradaul increase in weight is the key :P
Deadlift - what style do you do? brian12 2 7 yearsThor (5028): Regular deadlifts just feel very natural to me. I've never had any issues or niggles, so I'm quite happy sticking with them. I also do stiff legged/romanian on leg day for the hammies.
Deadlifts warrior 4 7 yearsmikew (11493): Agreed with Nyko to do a pyramid (or warm up, then stick in the lower rep range). I would add that you should supplement your DLs with Romanian DLs and bent over barbell rows.
Spotting the deadlift BaiTu 14 7 yearsadam82a (3100): Reminds me of what happened to Zack Khan, detached tendons from hack squatting. That pain, I can't fathom it
DEADLIFTS!! SRorhrbac0808 12 7 yearsseansm10 (906): i havent done deads in so long, SR, you did backsquats after the DLs? and you didnt feel any weaker, do you think itd be much different for doing front squats? i like those much more than back haha
Belts Monster81 2 7 yearsDETERMINED1 (2239): you can swich back and leg day around so that your back is not sore when you do squats or you can buy a belt.... i prefer to use a belt when doing squats regardless...but sometimes like today i forget to take it to the gym

Forearm strength wobbly_91 12 7 yearswobbly_91 (60): Yea I'm only a beginner. Exercises I struggled with were seated row (55kg, 121 lbs) and lat pull down (62kg, 136.4 lbs). So not very high weight. I'll try hanging of the pullup bar at the end of each workout. Any other exercises? I saw one guy doing this thing where he held out a bar with rope attached with weight at the end and he rolled the weight up and down. Surely that'd kill forearms?
which one bosssantana 9 7 yearsThor (5028): He is somewhat right. The emphasis really is upon your erector spinae. Rhomboids, upper/mid traps, levators are only stabilisers. Your lats might get an isometric contraction, but that's about it. Your erectors are a long muscle though - it's just that lat emphasis tends to obscure them, so visually it looks more like lower back development. BB rows probably have slightly more benefit for general back development.
What Can replace Deadlifts? POJelly 7 7 yearsPOJelly (1): My doc told me "Never again". I had surgery to remove a piece of bone that was crushing my sciatic nerve. I still feel a bit of an awkward feeling in my back whenever I bend but I expect that to go away eventually. The Doc originally sent me for an MRI and thats when he saw the Bone fragments and the herniated discs. As for the injury, it's a result of years of football, and krav maga. Thanks for the replies guys. And thanks AKK Ill...
Deadlift goal setting BaiTu 9 7 yearsCorkey (291): i have to wear a belt for deadlifts no matter the weight beacause ive experienced facid joint(lower back joint) problems in the past an cant risk it again
How is my dead lift form? (video inside) VOLSAO 15 7 yearsmikew (11493): Heh - I was kinda joking but not really... with the right form and by pushing your feet into the floor everything just clicks. Then when it's time to lock out reality kicks back in and it's like, "holy shit, I need to concentrate and not drop this weight."

deadlift and straps BaiTu 30 7 yearsjpicot1 (1): you should never let your grip fail you. just because some people can lift without straps doesnt mean you should let your own back and leg development suffer. if you need straps just ensure you throw in some forearm and grip exercises regularly
Deadlifts and abs BaiTu 10 7 yearsseansm10 (906): but yes, they work your whole core, i remember once when i tested my max DL and every ounce of my entire core ached
deadlift seansm10 13 8 yearsseansm10 (906): from personal results, yes ^, no factual or scientific answer for you though im afraid.
Sore Ass... Cupcake 9 8 yearssymplycty (132): It's your sciatic nerve, the problem usually emanates from improper form. To mitigate pain sit on a chair/bench and put one foot on the top of the other knee then gently press down on the knee which is elevated. Do this with both legs a few times a day and take care while bending over and rising.
