are cable deadlifts a sufficient subsitute for regular deadlifts?

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..

NO! Why would you want to use the cable instead of the bar??

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.Originally Posted by iron addict

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

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.
