    Highly disagree--deadlifts are great for overall strength and with proper form are completely safe. Hang cleans are far more dangerous in my opinion. Just because Robert got injured doesn't mean that normal people will.

    Fuck off Oberst. Deadlifts are the best. He's only saying this because he's shit at deadlifts compared to all the other strongmen out there.

    No dead lifts... hang & power cleaning bc of risk vs reward. Now I don't feel guilty for not dead lifting !

      @Abcdefg Hijklmno you could be correct. He could just be saying it is a bad exercise when you're trying to max out. If you do it and ensure that you have correct form and try to get a few reps instead of a one-rep Max it probably could be very useful.

    Athletes don't do deadlifts because it's an unathletic slow twitch muscle exercise. Sports are about explosive power.

    If you injure yourself deadlifting, then you are doing it wrong. Proper deadlift form is not difficult. And, aside from heavy squats, it is the best compound lift anyone can perform.

    totally true about going hungry. I accepted the conventional wisdom that I needed a solid meal to do anything so I had a big breakfast just before a tennis match. I felt horrible the whole time and played the worst match ever. I played much better on an empty stomach.
    Eat to recover, not for fuel.

      @Blake Hornal I learned a bit late that this also applied to academics. I would eat a big meal before lecture and then I felt sleepy the whole time. If I could do college over again, I would eat after my classes.

    Deadlift equal dumb the chance of injury is huge. You only need to drop to the knee for results never go all the way to the ground. Drain Yates never went low on deadlifts.

    I would have to agree with him. As a pt I wouldn't have clients (especially beginners) doing deadlifts, even though I was always taught that deadlifts are essential to most workout programs.
    There are so many great leg and back exercises out there with little risk of injury, looking for those safer alternatives would be in most peoples interests (i.e. the average gym goer who just wants to get fit or lose some weight).

    Dear Joe, you are one of the coolest guys on the internet and I truly love your style, but I must say that your seemingly irrational and visceral aversion to plant-based lifestyles is quite disappointing. If you only did a bit of serious research on this topic you would understand the huge environmental and ethical implications of feeding and killing animals for food, when we can perfectly avoid doing so and lead healthy lives while protecting our decaying biosphere. Would you be willing to make a podcast as a serious debate between the most well-respected activists or researchers in the environmental aspects of leading a plant-based vs meat-based diets?

    The sole reason people fuck themselves up on deadlifts is ego lifting, trying to pull too much and having tight muscles resulting in poor form. The deadlift is the best overall compound movement fact.
