    With grip assistance, yes, but I don't pull with wrist straps.

    Doug does not use a belt either which makes it damn impressive
    Doug is a bodybuilder not a powerlifter, so if he uses straps or not does not make a difference, his main goal is not strength its how he looks on a stage.

    He doesn't lock out a single rep! I don't care if he uses straps, but lock out one freaking rep.

    I am sure by him "not locking out a rep" it has really hurt his physique and how strong he truly is.

    Is red herring for dinner? If he's so strong, then why didn't he complete a single rep?

    Posts video claiming impressive deadlift, then changes the topic once said lift is never completed.

    I'm still waiting to see the guy in the video do a 580 x 1.....

    Why are you so offended by someone pointing out that those aren't full reps? Is that how you DL as well and thats why it's offensive?

    What will that prove? It still wouldn't make his reps complete. His technique sucks; plain and simple.

    Your sitting here trying to tell a pro how to deadlift. I guess his sucky form really reflects his physique and how much it has aided his progress over the years.

    Carry on.

    FFS, I'm a damn good deadlifter and a highly technical one at that. Again, is red herring for dinner?

    What does his physique have to do with locking out deadlifts? Nothing?

    It's a very black and white matter man, the legs are either locked or they aren't. His weren't.

    If I did that at my next meet I would get three red lights, plain and simple.

    And doug is a bodybuilder not a powerlifter, i have already written that. Does it matter to doug being a bodybuilder? again, i am sure his physique is really lacking from his deadlifting, maybe if more people half assed their deadlifts they would make so much progress. It goes to show you that lifting is not so black and white, you dont have to complete a lift 100% of the way to make gains and see progress in the gym.

    Lifting is not all about powerlifting, and lifting is not all about bodybuilding, its finding what works for you and what is optimal. Clearly doug is doing something right if he is making progress in his physique and strength.

    But that has nothing to do with the fact that it isn't a locked out deadlift. A deadlift is lifting a weight from the floor to an upright, locked out position.

    He might have a great physique, which is his goal. But don't post this in the training forum (there is a bodybuilding forum) expecting people to praise halfway completed deadlifts.


    Lots of pro BBers have awful form with damn near every lift, it might help with the extra volume for growth but it isn't impressive when someone uses back and hip momentum to do BB curls, and in that way it's not impressive to do half deadlifts.

    Or half squats with heavy weight, or anything else that is done halfway complete.

    Sure, his physique might be plenty impressive. But his deadlifting isn't.


    This, is what impressive deadlifting looks like:

    Look at how those legs are locked out, that's a deadlift.

    Dude, you're talking in circles and grasping at straws. If you post a video claiming some impressive deadlifts, then they should be done properly and completed.

    I'm still waiting on Doug Miller's, although I'm glad you can try to make this personal when someone points out poor form of someone you've probably never met in your life.

    I post videos of all of my training, and competitions.

    And guess what? When someone tells me I have a soft lockout on a deadlift, I fix it, because it's an incomplete lift otherwise.

    I guess it's a good thing he's not at a meet huh?
