    Why waste time with cutting right now? Heading into fall is a great time to start bulking and keep going until early spring with plenty of time to cut for nice weather next year.

    I have never dragged the bar up my shins. I have whacked my shins a couple of times on accident though. Not sure a 'good' deadlift requires ripping of shins.
