    Why would I use an inferior piece of equipment like the humble barbell to target my ass and hams when there are better pieces of equipment to use?

    Either way, deadlifts are chit as a back exercise. Doing deadlifts for back would be like doing squats for hams. Counterproductive.

    100% agree that you should choose the best thing for you! Its an art and a science!

    Id actually rate defecit stiff legs as equal to or greater than the 'rdl' or good morning for pure pc development!

    Although I do like lifts with a deep stretch reflex too.

    But dead stop stuff is a different animal thru such huge roms and angles.

    Nice to hear someone but me call training/coaching an art as well as a science!

    Most people only have n=1 or very small pools of experience to draw from and can't see past "it worked for me" and assume that is how it is for everyone. Hence all the 'this is the best' or 'this is ****' we see daily.

    I hate to say training is nuanced as **** and very individual.. But it is more than anything.

    Sounds like me giving someone advice on shooting a shotgun. At my last event I shot average. Not good, not bad, just my average. Came in 4th place out of 50 people, and that's about average for me. If I shot good I would have been 2nd. The first place guy was out of my league. He would be an Arnold.

    Or just shooting in general. On my honeymoon in the mountains of PA now and I even managed to snag some 9mm for NOT the cost of an arm and a leg like it would be in MD.

    Our differences in mentality regarding training aside, congrats and have a good time.

    Ironically I am going shooting this weekend on my friend's land and we came upon a rare windfall of 9mm ammo, which is still relatively scarce here.

    I really like that F5 includes it over conventionals for the increased ass/ham work you can get for less fatigue.

    Anyway…..

    Back to the OP:

    Keep plugging away at RDLs. Do more than 8 reps 10 to 12 should be your target.

    A form video might help, you may be exceeding your active range of motion and losing tension. It is a common mistake.

    As far as OHP, I’d put them aside for now, and focus on other shoulder work like raises (front, side, rear), dumbbell and machine presses/incline press if you absolutely have to press. Basically just give your shoulders a break.
    I didn't mean to bring this old thread up but I wanted to reply back and say thank you for you response! I'm surprised with the amount of posts this ended up getting.

    I'll go ahead and follow your advice and see how it goes.

    If you get the chance, if you can upload a form video for the RDLs, that would be good.

    I can tell if someone is exceeding their active range of motion pretty quickly.

    Either way, best of luck to you! Don’t get caught up in ego lifting and just remember to enjoy the ride that is lifting.
