    This is great, I'm starting Rippetoe's tomorrow and the last time I did a deadlift was in HS and knew it wasn't correct then. I figured if I want to do it right gotta find the right sources...and yours is it! I appreciate it, can't wait to implement all the stuff you said.

    weight is relative. Now if your max is double that, then yeah, you probably are breathing wrong.

    Chances are, you're holding your breath during some or all of the lift. Which can help you get up more weight, but also naturally makes you start gasping for air when you're done.

    I don't think your supposed to go all the way to the floor with any, as they already seem bad on the knees regardless... I'd assume they all work differently for different people, eh?

    So you're saying don't take the weight to the floor on a deadlift? Uh huh.


    Do you also feel that squats are bad for your knees?

    I certainly don't gasp for air after holding it for all of 10 seconds.

    Crazy talk.

    Who told you that stupid ****? I've heard it all now!

    There is no height limit on dead lifting or for any exercise for that matter.

    Newsflash: 6'1" is not tall.

    I'll throw a few names at you...

    Konstantins Konstantinovs: 948, 6'4"
    Mikhail Koklyaev: 900+, 6'4"
    Zydrunas Savickas: 900+, 6'3"
    Brad Gillingham: 860, 6'5"
    Gary Heisey: 925, 6'6"
    Garry Frank: 930, 6'3"

    Being tall is not an excuse.

    Question

    In your video you said not to hyperextend your back at lockout. I'm having trouble understanding what a proper lockout is.
    What are some signals I can to identify an optimal lockout?
    [i.e arms perpendicular to floor etc.]

    thanks in advance

    You want the chest up, shoulders back, and the knees, hips, and lower back to come into simultaneous extension.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the thread, kiknskreem. I am about to start barbell deadlifting again for the first time in almost a decade, and the instructional video was very informative.

    4-5 times will still leave some to be desired form wise. Just keep trying. The ol' saying 'practice makes perfect' does apply here.

    I wouldn't consider 4-5 times 'a while'. I'm not sure what i would consider 'a while' (just for the record) but I think you are selling yourself short. I doubt a baseball player gave up trying to hit the ball out of the park after 4-5 tries.

    Deadlifts Vs. Romanian Dead Lifts

    I am fairly new to the weight lifting world. I have been trying to find (unsuccessfully) what is the difference between deadlifts and romanian deadlifts. They look the same to me since I have been only lifting for a few months and have not obtained much knowledge yet.

    Is there any differences between them and if so what? I would like to be able to do these properly and to know what areas each excercise targets.

    Thank you.

    Romanian concentrates more on the hamstrings glutes and lower back and involves little leg drive. Knees stay relatively straight(never locked out) and bend at the hip.

    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...nDeadlift.html

    Regular dead lifts, you bend the knees more( less bend at the waist) and use more quads to drive with the legs.

    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...BDeadlift.html


    The exrx website is an excellent resource.

    Is there any differences between them and if so what? I would like to be able to do these properly and to know what areas each excercise targets.

    Thank you.

    I have a question, I am doing 3x5 deadlifts but starting from the second set, the last one going up I struggle and I'm concerned about my form during the last one. I kind of feel that my back is rounding during this time.

    I don't have a spotter or someone to watch me at this time but when I go back on Tuesday I'll have someone to confirm this for me.

    Should I just use lower weight so that my last rep is not a struggle?

    I would. But I prefer to pyramid weights.

    Whichever you prefer. Many like to do it on back day, simply because doing things like squats, and DL variations, lunges, etc and regular Deadlifts all for the legs is pretty trying on the body. So they stick to the other exercises on legs, and deadlifts on back day.

    It should be against your leg all the way up and all the way down.

    But if you're smacking your knees make sure you are moving your hips back to lower the weight, and not just flexing the knees.

    Watch the video.
