    Question Leaning back on the deadlift? :S

    OK I was deadlifting at the gym the other day and a personal trainer said "wanna lift heavy on the deadlift...?" and then showed me how he does them. He said to almost look up to the ceiling to fully use the hamstrings and lats, but lean back too to prevent back injuries. Now usually I'd brush it off seeing as though it sounds very unorthodox but as a personal trainer I thought I'd at least see what people thought on here so here's a crude mspaint drawing of how he looked at the top of the lift:

    Facing that way --> if you can't tell from the drawing lol

    Thoughts?

    I've always been told that exaggerated lean back on the dead lift is a good way to be sore as hell with no gain. Just stand up normally and lock out, then put it down.

    Leaning back at the top means hyperextending the spine, which done under load is dangerous. If thats what he meant, then I guess we can add 1 to the tally of PT retards roaming the earth.

    There is no need to "lean back" at the top of the lift. The entire thing began with competitive lifters having a little bit of an exaggerated lean so they could clearly demonstrate to judges that they'd locked out the weight. It's not something that is necessary or desirable for the the purposes of the lift itself.

    I think you need to upload a vid, how can we tell your form from a stick figure picture?

    Also, if PT is helping you DL, then he better damn well DL in his weekly routine.

    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    I think you misunderstood my post. I do not deadlift how he suggested. Also, he is not MY trainer, he just saw me doing DLs and suggested it.

    While a disagree with the backward lean, as it's not really necessary, I do agree with the looking up part.

    From experience leaning back too far has always tweaked my back a bit. There is no need to hyper extend
