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.

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.

Anytime someone tries to discredit something that someone else has done needs to look in the mirror first.
He may not have locked out but none the less he's put in some work to even get 635 off the ground.
And don't tell me your guys are commenting on his form and strictly pointing out that he didn't lock his knees.
Your personal bias oozes through your messages.

I'm just not impressed by halfway completed deadlifts. I've seen tons of guys get heavy weight above their knees and not lock it out, and it's still an incomplete DL.
Locking out 635 x 3 would've been impressive, but getting it to the knees and calling it a completed deadlift isn't.
Hell, a couple of locked out 500lb deadlifts would've been more impressive (it would be more than 2x BW for him, yeah) than not completing the ones he "did".

Do you think he is strong?
11-07-2013, 09:43 PM
Now that the thread has been turned by two people that suck at logical arguments, the fact still remains that not a single rep was completed at either weight that was shown.

I don't think you need to be stronger than someone in order to critique their form...So I don't get the whole "show your videos then" thing.
Pretty sure we all have the right to say it wasn't a properly completed deadlift....which is fact..so what's the big deal with people saying his reps weren't locked out?
That's what happens when you post a video. Not everyone has to be impressed with it. I think the 180lb guy pulling 585x5 with flawless form is more impressive.
Yes. The dude is strong. Why get so butt hurt when someone says the dude isn't perfect with his reps?
