    You can do deadlifts until you can’t any longer.

    Haven't watched the video but I agree. So many ppl screw up their backs with deadlifts. I'll do really light deadlifts/RDLs to stretch..but I'd never do heavy

    Yeah, I don't do these. Or classic barbell squats either. Really good for your muscles but IMO they're just too risky when it comes to potential injury to your spine and back.

    I hate deadlifts, they take way too much out of me. Don't need to tell me twice not to do them, I would rather do bent over rows and a few other movements any day. Fuck deadlifts.

    Kind of stupid tbh. Deadlifting is regarded as the top excercise for developing back size and strength. Obviously student athletes shouldnt be doing them in high school weight rooms but it has more advantages then just "deadlifting for the sake of dead lifting". Everyone loves the backsquat but obviously it puts tremendous strain on your knees and lower back, but I see no one telling you to not do it.

    You go to those same gyms were they arent dead lifting because of the risk vs reward all those guys are doing leg extensions.complaining about blowing out your back, then train your lower back properly and stop using weight belts you fat dumb fuck. stop just trying to lif tand move heavy things and actually take some time understanding how to do that properly .this fat strongman who literally does the definition of high risk is just repeating what he has been told by other not really in shape but strong dudes. strongmen are always calorie bulking overweight dudes who are always a waste of potential. this dudes such a retard.

      yeah doing deadlifts is probably better than being a couch potato like you were before. doesn't mean they aren't still risky and there isn't a better option

      Form is everything. I believe also along with hyper extensions and at a reasonable weight... Not maxing, but for reps is acceptable.

    theres nothing wrong with deadlifts or most excesises , its just when people start abusing and obsessing trying to deadlift 500 lbs every week or workout stuff too often, If your doing heavy squats and legs your doing full body, i stopped doing heavy deadlifts years ago no reason to risk injury, i do maybe 225 at most. just do them modestly and you will be ok, do deadlifts once or twice a month if that, for the love of god dont go heavy and strain yourself and the back . work your way up small increments never make 75lb jumps every week your asking for injury. i have seen to many dudes get hurt cause they just obsess about being able to pick up a truck. my best advice is dont go heavy every week, because more isnt always better

    I have to disagree. My right leg is effed and I could deadlift way, way more than I squatted for a while and I could do bent over rows of 3 plus bills at 185 in my hockey days.

      Stoner Control I know a lot of guys who dead lift a lot that can’t bend over and row shat or do a lot of pull ups either. People have a poor perspective of strength these days going up in the gym I have seen this very odd transition and let me tell you something I see to many people going into powerlifting with out proper protocol, no stabilization or balance training

    Clean and press is my favorite. I never got hurt doing it, could do 225 no matter what probably 280 if I trained at it more. I am genetically predisposed to be more quad dominant in my lifts and I'm sitting here hurt from deads.

    Its good to hear a sportsperson able to talk coherently and not resort to repeating phrases that they hear their sports psychologist say. It's not necessary for athletes to be rocket scientists but sometimes you hear them talk and they are just literally regurgitating things that keep them safe.

    Even people with great technique can push too hard or too long and cause themselves injuries.

    Anyone who is new to working out please don’t listen to this guy and take it as fact there is so much misinformation in the fitness industry. This guy is talking about from his perspective he deadlifts fucking cars, and 890 pound barbells. Deadlift is a very core exercise the trick to not fucking up a deadlift is knowing how to do it and practice do it with little to no weight start there and build making sure you do it right.
