I have been lifting regularly for the past 3 4 months. Most ppl in my gym steer clear from free weight squats and deads, they are happier on their machines and advice me to do the same.
I refuse to train like that, I like to deadlift, A LOT.(though I lift hardly anything,right now).
I have been around these forums for quite a while and they are a BIG help. I went through a few threads about deadlift injuries to learn about other peoples experiences and to learn how
to avoid ending up with an injured back.
I am **** scared, in all those threads, everyone says that they have injured their back couple of times doing deads, it almost seems like you WILL injure your back if you like to dead.
I just want to have a better idea of how common are these injuries so I request you to post
1. How long have you been doing deads.
2. How many times have you injured yourself, how severely.(if any)
3.What, according to you, was the real reason for the injury.
I hope there would be more people who never hurt themselves doing deads than who have.
