It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Posted via RS Mobile

Edit didn't add the barbell I always forget that was my max squat before I took three months off only reasoin I asked if the supp works is bc maybe its all bs and its just a mind game I thing its helping but really I could have done it all along if I wasn't so scared to slap more weight on

Squats yesterday, deadlifts today. I'm really loving going to Gold's, just because there is so much space and no congestion, I get to work whatever the hell I want in the free weights area. Well worth the moneys.

If any of you guys want to fool around with bumper plates I would recommend checking out Hastings Community Center. That's the old gym I used to go to when I wanted to be alone.

Question. My lower back hurts when I deadlift so I have swithced to dumbell deadlifts. I clearly can't do as much weight, but I feel a very similiar effect in terms of difficulty. It feel better on my back, but I was wondering whats everyone opinions on them? Better or worse then regular deadlifts? Any of you guys alternate between the two?

It's a good idea to alternate between single leg dumbbell. For those that aren't doing it already, give it a try for a while. I guarantee your barbell deadlift #'s will go up.

Yup, exactly. You could use Dumbbells too. Make sure to keep the back straight, not rounded. That guy was rounding just a bit

get someone to check your form.. also, deadlifts are not for everyone.. some people just cannot do it

Dude, this shit is hard! I tried doing them with 25s and looked like an idiot!
Finally was able to do like 5 reps with 20s LOL.
Works out basically every part of your arm though. Really good workout. Thanks

DB deadlifts are very similar to trapbar deadlifts, naturally you will be able to lift more and it is almost impossible to injure yourself because proper form will come to you more easily. The weight will be positioned to your sides rather than infront of you.

However, I suggest you don't neglect Barbell deadlifts. When I was a complete newb I was really weak and did strain my back once or twice, but through many hours of training I got the form nailed down. Get someone to spot you once in a while and work on your form above all, don't worry about weight until you're confident. Keep your abs tight.

theres a difference between bringing the weight down quickly and "bouncing" it

i dont feel that working a negative is good for form atall on a DL, im no expert tho

working negatives while DLing HEAVY is a great way to hurt yourself. its too hard to keep form. heavy DLing is about pulling a ton of weight. you dont have to throw the bar down... control your lowering, but dont work too hard at it.

and you're an idiot if you bounce deadlifts anyway, you should take a good solid gulp of air at the bottom before your next pull or you're going to end up face first in the rack if your repping anymore than 4s.

working negatives while DLing lighter weights is fantastic for stability tho.


I use mats too because we dont have bumper plates or a platform.

when i do DL's i get down to bout1 inch off the ground then up again.
Is it better to let the weight touch the ground then go for another rep?
