    Deadlifts and multiple reps

    When I have done my first deadlift rep, I usually just lower the weight to the floor very quickly, almost like dropping the weight but not totally dropping it.

    I am not sure how to reset myself for the next rep....

    Do you guys just roll the weight backwards till its touching your shins, or do you pause, let go of the weight, and then start completely over from scratch to get into the starting position?

    This may seem like a dumb question, but I find that deadlift is the hardest exercise to do multiple reps with very quickly, since the starting position has to be so precise.

    Need advice!

    Dirk

    If I perform multiple repetitions, I'll usually utilize a controlled descent and "touch-go" technique. I stop to reset if necessary.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I do it like Dave Tate:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_R4PUstaeKM

    Set it straight down by dropping it and bending at the waist. Then once it is on the floor, bend the knees till the shins touch the bar. Should just stay straight up and down the whole set.

    Controlled descent... perform whatever level of reset is necessary to get you back into the proper starting position. What you'll find is that you'll gear your descent and position to minimize the effort it takes to do this. In other words, practice.

    I prefer not to do a controlled descent, because you're exerting force on the weight when you do that... its safer to just drop a heavy weight. Of course, this makes the next rep more difficult to set up for, hence the question...

    It's safer to not do the lift at all, but that's not the point. Do what works for you, but my suggestion is that you work on controlling the weight through all phases of the lift. You asked.

    I watched the Dave Tate video. He is definitely just dropping the weight, thats not a 'controlled descent'... that weight looks very heavy too!

    He seems to be in the correct starting position each time though, not sure how he does that...

    Controlled descent is sh*t for the deadlift IMO. The exercise is over at the top of the lift. If you set it down slowly, what youre doing is basically stretching your muscles under a load. When you do this, your muscles prepare themselves to shoot back up. This is good for things like the squat, but for the deadlift, you are supposed to start with a dead stop on the floor.

    Less effort on the descent = better pulls on subsequent reps

    Dropping the weight is not more difficult to set up for. You just need to get good at it.

    Practice. Once you are at lockout, unlock your hips first and shove them back, bending at the waist. Always keep in mind that an object that is in free fall WILL fall in a straight path. Do not bend at the knees, or else your knees will scoot foward under the bar and be crushed.

    I'd say that definitely is a controlled descent. He's got straps on and he's not unloading his back muscles. That is very different than dropping the weight.

    Hmm...interesting. Any time I heard controlled descent, I always think of the kind of DL where people take like 5 seconds to set it down. If thats your definition of controlled descent then I agree with controlled descent.

    You really dont think he is unloading that weight though? To me it looks like he's just falling with the weight..

    I totally agree with this. When I Bench press as soon as I unrack the bar I let go and let it crash into my chest. It's much safer this way, especially with heavier weight. It also helps me save energy for when I drive the bar back off my chest.

    No, I don't think so, especially as he progresses. He's obviously coming down quickly but he is not in free fall, at least not in my opinion. I come down quickly with the weight but I maintain a healthy tension until the weight is making contact with the ground, and do moreso when I am planning on coming back up. But, of course, I don't want to waste any more energy than is absolutely necessary. The goal is to lift it, not set it down slowly!

    Managing load throughout the movement with an option to bail if things go wrong is part of the reason I don't use straps, but this is one guy's opinion.

    I set it down in a quick controlled way.

    Then I run through a quick set up checklist in my head:

    1. bar over middle of feet?
    2. hands/grip in good position?
    3. bend knees until shins touch bar!
    4. butt out! chest up!
    5. PULL!
    O35 and enjoying life.

    Agree with this^

    When I do deads it is damn near a free fall from the top - but still no where close to me just dropping it. The bar lands about where it started, I drop my hips, get tight, and begin my next pull.

    IMO, the most important part of the deadlift is the setup. If your setup is off, your lift will be bad. So take as much time as you need to to set up. If it means letting go of the bar and standing up between each rep, then do it.

    Bench press is completely different, don't even compare DL to it...

    Yeah, this makes sense. The only downside is that you are letting your body get a bit of rest between reps, so you lose that feeling of accumulated tension that you get with other basic weightlifting exercises. Once you give your muscles this 5 seconds of rest, the next rep is easier of course...

    I have yet to meet any PT or seen any videos says that proper form includes dropping weights and resetting between every single rep.

    If you keep good form on the decent why would it be necessary to reset?
    Its called a DEADlift. the bar is lifted DEAD from the ground. your way works fine for you. some people touch and go. but believe me, many, many, many people consider proper deadlifting from a resting position on the ground.

    if you keep good form on descent you can probably not reset. some people like to be sure though. also I would add that the whole resetting process for me takes about 1 second.

    I don't disagree about the name of the lift, but I've never heard any one say proper form is to drop the weights and reset each rep.

    jason ferruggis: http://jasonferruggia.com/drop-the-deadlift/

    exrx - return bar to floor between reps http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...BDeadlift.html

    Rippetoe (maybe more qualified than your average PT?) expressly teaches deadlifts from a dead stop in Starting Strength

    do not have my copy at work with me but here is a mention http://strength-basics.blogspot.com/...adlifting.html

    more http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=998224

    Wendler: You can either lower the bar slowly to the starting position or drop it. (from 5/3/1 manual) Wendler says touch-n-gos are also OK if you can do them safely with form

    another strength coach: http://www.deepsquatter.com/strength/archives/tomdl.htm

    Stronglifts 5x5: http://stronglifts.com/13-deadlift-m...hnique-stupid/

    http://stronglifts.com/deadlift-grip...ease-strength/







    also you are putting words in my mouth with the "Completely drop" comment. I never said that anywhere. the statement was, and I quote, "many, many, many people consider proper deadlifting from a resting position on the ground."



    dropping or lowering is your choice, resetting is your choice, but the bar goes to the ground between reps. which is what I thought I said. it was in response to your earlier post that you don't let the bar touch the ground doing deadlifts.

    edit: I see you started to respond before I edited my post to clarify. point was that deadlifting is lifting the bar dead from the ground, and resetting/dropping/lowering/etc to get it there and back up or optional.


    edit: more from 5/3/1 manual:
    There are two options for doing multiple reps with the deadlift. You can either touch-and-go the reps (slight bounce off the floor), or you can do dead stop deadlifts. For these, you’ll reset for each rep. I’ve done both, and both work. The downside to touch-and-go is that when you build up momentum, you can bounce too hard and lose your tightness. If you’re strong enough to hold your position and you have the control to do it, this option will work for you. The dead stop option is good for most people, but make sure you reset perfectly each time.




    I'd like to see a coach and/or someone reputable teaching deadlifts that show you don't return the bar to the ground. Very interested in that. SLDLs and RDLs don't count.

    Are we seriously ****ing discussing whether or not the bar should TOUCH the ground in a set of deadlifts now?

    That is so ****ing stupid. The reason the bar touches the ground is so you know that each lift starts and ends at the right place. If you're not touching the ground then you have no evidence that youre getting stronger rather than just leaving it half an inch further off the ground each time.

    OY ... why do these always degrade into abject stupidity? All the relevant concepts have been mentioned. Sprinkle a little common sense on the high points and you should have the tools to accomplish what you want with this lift.

    This isn't rocket science.

    2 + 2 = 5 (for extremely large values of 2)

    Yes, there are multiple ways to deadlift. Your way is not one of them. Your way is wrong.

    You are straight up retarded. The advice was to avoid bending at the knees so that they dont move under the bar. Not to move backwards.......

    Get-n-fit: if you are not touching the ground with the weight, then how can you know if you are pulling it the same distance each time or if you are cutting the ROM?

    So I agree with the people who are saying to drop the weight to the ground.

    I think Rippetoe suggests just rolling the weight back to your shins while you are crouching in the starting position, is that what you do?
