Deadlifts

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I love doing deadlifts. I rotate between half deads and regular Deadlifts.
    I find my traps are getting hella bigger and my back is looking thicker.
    So i will do them hard and heavy.


  2. p.s. - YOU'RE a BEAST! Though your name is kinda getting to me, because I keep thinking that it's the p.s. that goes after a letter or a note, as an after thought....

    As for Deadlifts, I love them. Definitely one of my favorite exercises.

    Again, What rep range do you use, 4-6 for me (especially you P.S.-Great back!). Also I'm 6'2 235 is a 575 lb deadlift good for me on a single? Heres a picture of me doing 500 at 235.
    Is anybody going to give me their rep ranges? I would really life to know what works for you guys, heavy sets of 2-3, 6-8, etc.

    I do 3 sets: 8 reps, then 6, then 3-4

  5. I do 3 sets of parital deads at 10-6-4 reps (back day)
    Another 3 sets of regular deads on leg day at 10-8-6

  6. 4 pyramid sets of 8-6; 6-4; 4-2; 2-1.

  7. Thanks for the response guys, always interesting to see what works for different people.

  8. supersize77 how on earth can you stand doing DLs without any shin protection? Do you have any skin left to cover your tibias?

    Maybe I'm just a *****. Then again, Squat and deadlift are my favorites...

    Oh, and when you do them, do you push through your heel or through your entire foot area?

    I'mma try through the heel today because my DL weights suck...

  9. i hear ya dude. i used to have that same problem, only now i dont have it. why? i dunno. i honestly cant remember. next time i do deads, ill pay attention and post back. im pretty sure though, that i just didn't pull the bar as close or something, also using bigger plates helps as well. see if ur gym has some 75 lb. plates or alike.

    Same here, I just focus on keeping good form and it hasn 't been a problem.

  11. Well, I went and did DLs yesterday and something definitely was wrong. So I spent the whole evening away from pr0n sites to verify proper form

    Finally, I *THINK* I know what I was doing wrong : A lot of people advise starting the lift with the shins touching the bar. Also, a lot of people advise gripping the bar WIDE. Well, that's what I was doing. As wide as for a bench press. The result is that at the beginning of the lift, to bring my spine flat, my ass was nearly touching the ground. I was completely scrounched up together... No wonder the poundages remained low.

    I guess the way you do it is you grab the bar so that your arms are only a little wider than your knees? That would have your thighs about parallel to the ground when you bring your spine into a flat/arched postition at the beginning of the lift...? Am I getting it right?

  12. hahaha, dude, u got me confused now.

    im pretty sure that i just use the same grip width as my flat bench press. like 2 or so feet apart?

    def. dont have the bar touch ur shins, u want it close, but not that close. just close enough so that u get a good stretch with the negative motion. dont let the weights slam off the floor each time u lower it. it should always be controlled. then explode up. when raising the weight, u should use ur lower back, hamstrings, upper traps, etc.

    push up with ur whole foot.

    some people just take longer to get the form down, dont worry itll come to u. but i def would stress that u need to practice proper form cuz u will bust ur $hit up pretty good.

  13. More like 3 feet apart, it seems. AHEM.
