    no more deads


    this is just a rant.

    everytime i have hurt my back, it has been from some form of deadlift. last monday i tried rack deads for the first time. i set it at just above knee level, but it never felt right. kept trying, but in the end pulled a muscle in my back. it has taken since tuesday till today for it to be back to normal. i did everything i could to heal it. deep tissue massage, foam rollers, extreme stretching, and today some good mornings with minmal weight. feels almost 100%, but i am thru doing dead lifts. i train westside style and there are plenty of ways to increase my deadlift without training it. i will probobly only deadlift 1 time every 4mths to establish a max. by no other deadlift variations. god i hate injuries and setbacks... ill be back in top form in no time...:bb3:

    Dead lifting once every four months is probably a worse idea.

    You should have someone re-evaluate your form. Also wear a belt if you don't already.

    2nd this. You've probably got some form issues - as I had before I got em fixed up.

    No looking back - deads are sure-fire mass builders.

    ditto, Could be form and could be back strength. I've been reading through WSB and EFS and have learned my form is wrong.

    You definitely don't want to deadlift that rarely. Drop the weight, perfect your form, wear a belt (if needed) and do them at least once a week for life!

    Lower the weights and concentrate on form.

    Use the trap bar.

    Wear a belt.
