should i be doing deadlifts?

  1. should i be doing deadlifts?


    this is like one of the biggest excercises there are and i really wanna do them i just a little worried about my lower back cause its always really tight and i have to pop it all the time and stuff... but i have truck and mow lawns so i have lift that mower in and out of it and i think ive gotten a lot stronger from that so i feel like id be pretty good at them so what do ya think?


  2. It's quite possible that adding deadlifts could actually benefit your lower back. Form is everything with this lift and I suggest your get proper instruction before attempting to add them to your routine.

  3. I'm with pablogdog if I can I might Rep out some deads today and hack squats. I love em both so much my wife gets jealous.

  5. i agree with what everyone said. dont worry about the weight that ur doing. dial in ur form and slowly increase weight. before u know it u'll be tossing ur lawn mower around like a toy lol
    -It's not about what you're doing, it's about how you're doing it.

  6. well you posted this in the PL forum, which of course has DL as part of you score, so its kinda obvious...

  7. lol ok thanks a lot ill be sure to add them then

  8. Yup to everything everyone else has said. Make sure to get the form down first. You accomplish this by just using something like 135 and doing them over, and over, and over, until the mechanics are drilled into your head and, most importantly, your body. Make sure to brace your abs and keep your chest up, and drive through your heels.

  9. yes

    And yes, if you are going to add deadlifts into your routine, make certain that you add ab/core exercises, if there not in there already, as well. Crunches, hanging leg lifts, etc. will add balance and make proper form easier to achieve.

    This ^^^^


    Like mentioned, start out slow, get your form down, then worry about weight. I would also suggest adding in WEIGHTED glute ham raises, this will aid in this process.

  12. ok cool yeah thanks lot guys, going to hit some up today actually!
