    Deadlift, one of the most haunting words for any newbie in a gym. Most of the people consider deadlifting only for professionals and weightlifters, that’s the reason most people never try deadlifting.

    Deadlifting is a proven exercise for intense muscle gain, more power, and stability. Deadlift is the best compound exercise, which works on your whole body.

    I've been going to the gym for 2 months straight (doing deadlifts twice a week now, and squats also two days a week),
    Got so much stronger I can feel the energy and strength but growth is very slow.
    Do you think It's 2 months is too early to see any growth?

    Hello ... I have been working out regularly for about 7 months now and currently I am following the vikings workout schedule. I don't have a coach in the gym so I always try to coach myself and check the proper form everytime.

    Here is a video of me deadlifiting ... the bar have 80KG plates and I deadlift it 16 reps over 2 sets.... the question is: am I doing it right? and do you think I should increase the weight?

    Thank you

    For me, conventional deadlift has been rather useless. What is your goal? Hypertrophy-wise, it doesn't make much sense. Just another olympian style lift, like snatch, clean and jerk etc. It works explosiveness, primarily, even more so when focusing on low reps. It's a reason bodybuilders rely heavily on isolation, because it facilitates hypertrophy.

    [QUOTE=Kiknskreem;248854821]The Rack Pull

    The other half of this combination is the Rack pull, or partial deadlift. Unlike the Halting however, the rack pull is not perfectly analgous to the top half of the pull. A change in mechanics makes it a more effective exercise for both the hip extensor muscles (if the lift is being used as an assistance lift, as would athletes) AND the back if it is being used by a bodybuilder. The rack pull is more similar to the top of clean at the end of the first pull than a deadlift because of the desired forward shoulder position.

    For general training purposes, the rack pull should begin from below the knee. Those who have experience with the lift may find it desireable to start higher, but it is my opinion that that is a decision best left to the trainee with some experience under their belt. 3-4" below the joint line is generally appropriate. If its all the way down to mid shin the point of the exercise is defeated.

    Rack pulls are done off pins, typically inside a power rack. Basically opposite the Halting deadlift, the rack pull minimizes quad involvement while greatly loading all the hip extensors, hams, glutes, and back. Those who choose to start from a higher position than outlined here will likely feel it less in the hips and more in the back.

    The trainee should assume the same width stance as they would for a regular deadlift but keep their shins closer to the bar than would be in a pull off the floor. The bar must be directly over the middle of the foot. The shin should be close to, but not exactly vertical. The shoulders will be in front of the bar and must remain there until the bar is well up the thigh. The back must be locked in rigid extension, chest up!

    From this position the bar is pulled right up the leg, with the shoulders out over the bar, chest up, and knees held back with no forward movement. Once the bar gets to the point where the shoulder blades have rotated behind it the hips must be forcefully extended. The finish position is the same as for the deadlift.

    The way the rack pull differs from the actual top of a deadlift off the floor is that the shoulders are out over the bar longer, which means the back is more horizontal. This is the result of the near vertical shin position, this ensures that the quads are eliminated and it is the hip extensors that move the bar. This more horizontal back angle is why the rack pull is such a great movement for the erectors, as well as just the magnitude of the load used.

    Things to look out for would be letting the knees come forward as soon as they are passed by the bar, making the back angle morevertical and hitching the bar up the leg. You can do more weight like this because you get the opportunity to rebend the knee and let the quads contribute to the movement, but you do this at expense to nailing the muscles that you are trying to work with this exercise (hip extensors and back).

    This is a rack pull described in the above manner, with the exception of a slightly higher than optimal start position. This was an equipment limitation.

    Good question and following. At 47 years old and had a knee injury (2 full tears front and back of my meniscus) i have been leary of DL and Squats but love them. I am investing in some knee sleeves, i use a belt and might even get shoes anything to get an advantage or be safer. I'm thinking the weight and range of motion is the only thing that could be a problem. You could dl lighter weight for more reps and/or more often if it feels good. I'm going to push myself but be smart and let my knee tell me what it is ok with. There are lots of exercise that are similar db dl, low cable bar/handle raises, just bar and bands etc. Warm up right, know your range of motion and watch the weight!
    It's not about how much the guy beside me lifts!
    It's not about how much the girl beside me lifts!
    It's about ME!

    Find what works for you!
