    cable deadlifts are more convient, but they don't feel the same as reg. deadlifts,
    what do you think?

    I would not think, mainly because they stabilizer muscle would not be used as much.. if you have a Hammer ground squat you can use it for deads..

    Only reason I can think of is if someone is adverse to pain. The bigest weight stack I've seen on a cable is 250 at best, hard to push yourself like that.

    Only reason I can think of is out of pure laziness, not wanting to load and unload the bar.

    I must admit, that's it,
    not wanting to hunt down the weights and unload + load the bar,
    plus it's hard to find the space in the gym to do them when there are some people there.
    I guess I should be ashamed.
