    What is your favorite type of deadlift?

    What is your favorite type of deadlift?

    01. conventional deadlift - touch-and go style
    02. conventional deadlift - deadstop/reset style
    03. snatch-grip deadlift
    04. candito deadlift - medium stance, snatch grip
    05. block deadlift
    06. deficit deadlift
    07. sumo deadlift
    08. hexbar/trapbar deadlift
    09. paused deadlift
    10. stiff-leg deadlift
    11. romanian deadlift
    12. dorian yates deadlift
    13. reeves deadlift
    14. suitcase deadlift
    15. dumbbell deadlift
    16. jefferson deadlift
    17. b-stance deadlift
    18. dimel deadlift

    a. I know stiff-leg and romanian deadlifts are different, but maybe someone only does these, instead of conventional & co
    b. I added some unpopular ones, like reeves deadlift. I don't know who does this and what would be the benefit, except the grip. But, for the fun of it, I added them...
    c. Not sure if I should have added smith machine deadlift.

    Anything else to add?

    You can add paused deadlifts and Jefferson deadlifts (also called Jefferson squats).

    Paused deadlifts are at #9

    I didn't add Jefferson because I see it more as a wide squat, it doesn't seem to be enough hinge. Maybe some people can say the same thing about hexbar dl or sumo dl.

    I will add it.

    Also,I will add b-stance deadlifts.

    Favorites.. Hoo boy that's a tough one, and I do a lotta deadlifts. Here's my list of favorite deadlift variants based on muscle group prioritization:

    Sumo if i'm going after glutes.
    Romanian if i'm going after hamstrings.
    Reeves if i'm going after traps.
    Hack squats(barbell) if i'm going after quads. (even though they aren't technically considered a deadlift, they still really feel like one)

    My least favorite would be conventional. Dislike them and they've never felt right to me, fatigue is too high and my lower back doesn't like em. I know they're practically "the standard" for deadlifting, I just didn't really connect with them and feel what I want to feel when doing them. They used to mess me up for following days, which in turn threw my schedule out of order, so I skip conventionals but still have places I use the other variations throughout the week. If my schedule didn't allow to have specificity in such a way, i'd reconsider using conventionals again as i'd be looking for a more broad effect.

    Conventional deadlift, deadstop/reset style.

    Touch and go is pretty intense, just impossible at near-maximal weight.
    Bench: 320
    Squat: 375
    Deadlift: 495

    Fave?

    Beltless defecit (real) snatch grip stiffleg deadlift with a full deadstop and a pause at your regular start position without the pause (usually 2" the same as the fefecit)

    Yup....

    But in any block ill be doing 3 variations, as multiple variations will always be better than one. Even if its somehow provably the 'best'

    Also..
    Low block Sumo

    RDL


    second being the hybrid one where your knees are closer together than sumo but your arms are still in between your legs, like Ed Coan when he pulled that record deadlift
    I don't know either lol

    Hex bar, because of the versatility, that and I can actually fully shorten the scapular muscles at the top of a movement since the arms can move behind the body, something that can’t be done with a straight bar

    Favorite straight bar variation would have to be stiff leg deadlifts (not RDLs) I’ve worked up to doing 405 for 3 reps doing that before

    Just want to throw out there that sumo (and anything wide stance) is NOT “more glute”.

    When you’re internally rotated and abducted like that the glutes actually lose ability to produce force.

    Reeves deadlifts are cool, but I’ve never done them or seen anyone else do them either. Might give them a try sometime..

    A lot more difficult than they seem, if using a full 7 foot bar. Wouldn't start with much beyond 10 or maybe 25lb plates, on account that they're hella grip intensive too. But damn though, havin your arms outstretched like that really fries ya in new ways not otherwise achieved by other exercises. May need a smaller bar if you have shorter arms/frame though.

    Light warmups!

    Not just nut smashers, i think they got pushed back up xd cos I've got trex arms (and long shins) and the bar really ain't in a favourable position with grip out at the plates with a legit snatch grip..

    https://www.instagram.com/tv/CWGnWA6...dium=copy_link

    Think these may be 'klokov deadlifts' of at least as close as i can get

    My favorite kind of deadlifts?

    Yesterday’s deadlifts.

    Because man, even if I love them, I hate those MFers… 🤣

    I dunno, but I do know many people in the gym can't tell one DL variation from another. They think you're doing the exact same lift each time.

    Think these may be 'klokov deadlifts' of at least as close as i can get
    I’m assuming the double pause serves a distinct purpose?

    Like most variations, its a No, not really.
    I just really like doing it and historically it works well for me for putting mass on the pc.

    I mean, Other than joint angle specificity, feeling a nice stretch at long muscle lengths and making it much more of a self limiting variation.

    I train my deadlift in a very conjugate type of way.
    I rotate variations because they seem to respond very well to huge amounts of variation of hinging without blowing my ass out pulling a comp style ad nauseum, which gets boring.

    Ill usually run 3 variations per block of some combo of..
    Conv
    Sumo
    Eddy semi sumo
    Reg
    Sl
    Sg
    Belt
    No belt
    Pauses
    Defecits
    Blocks (I don't like rack pulls)
    Chain
    Band
    Straight plates
    Straps
    Raw
    Reg bar
    Deadlift bar
    Axel bar
    Trap bar
    Ect

    1) Sumo, cuz it's the most natural way to lift heavy weight (for me), and I do deadlift to lift heavy weight.
    2) RDL. I don't really like them at all, actually, and have a hard time feeling my hamstrings like I should. But that's why I do them - to get a better feel for hip hinge hamstrings and work hamstrings.
    3) Pause sumo. Pause a couple inches off the ground on the way up and on the way back down. Just a way to get a lighter variation and dial in starting position.

    I hate conventional. I have no idea why I would ever want to lift something heavy like that.

    Weird how natural leverages differ from one person to another: I feel very strong with the hinge portion and weak with a more upright back.

    Yeah, idk how much is leverage and how much is movement patterns ingrained from childhood. I do think I have shorter limbs (although I've never figured out how to measure properly, but I even liked short cranks and a low saddle when racing bikes). But also I feel like throughout life, it's more comfortable and easier to lift big things with a wide stance. I mean, you can't lift a sofa with your legs close together, can you?

    Yes, and in fact I've had to in order to carry them through doorframes and up staircases from living in upstairs apartments.

    I've honestly never given sumo deadlifts a serious try; I might find it a more effective variation. I prefer conventional because it seems to be a more complete and holistic movement, but wouldn't say anything negative about sumo in general as it just seems different and I haven't done them with any kind of challenge or consistency. That AMRAP you did was pretty insane.

    To be fair, I probably wouldn't lift a sofa or a big stone with legs quite as wide as sumo, but also wouldn't put my arms wider than my feet. I'd put my feet as wide as possible while still being able to easily step them inward to walk the large item to where I'm putting it.

    For a while I thought I "should" keep doing conventional because it's a "standard" lift. But I can engage more muscles more evenly if I'm not leaning so far forward. Those who prefer conventional likely prefer it for the same reasons I prefer sumo - it feels more natural to them and they are able to lift more. Lifting more weight is the whole point of the deadlift IMO.

    Greg Nuckols actually says something about this in a podcast, talking about why people's deadlift are usually stronger than their squat. His point is that people typically pick things up from the floor and put them back down starting in early childhood, so the deadlift pattern does get ingrained very early. Compared to squatting, where most people don't squat down and stand up *with any kind of weight on their back* until they start weight training.

    Also, when you watch kids play, they just drop their hands down to the ground to interact with the things they see. They don't set up in a sumo and then drop down. Could just be that their arms are longer than their legs as they're growing, and it's easier to just reach down.
