thats way closer than my competition grip. I'll film my comp style triples today to highlight the difference

2018-02-16 15:04:45 UTC
This is comp style but bad angle. I’m vid one of my heavy sets every session so I’ll get a better angle

Super close grip (inside shoulder width) puts more stress on wrists and shoulders. I take shoulder width and focus on “stacking” my elbows and forearms with minimal flair plus a more straight bar path

someone redpill me on deadlifting. i get my fitness advice from a guy who's lifted for a long time and is exceptionally knowledgeable about fitness and health, and he doesn't do deadlifts because squats and other lifts work out all the same muscles without nearly the same risk of injury. second opinions anyone?

Squats are great, but they don't work the posterior chain nor upper back muscles like a deadlift.

2018-02-21 05:10:27 UTC  

Plus there are few things more primal than lifting a lot of weight. Feels good man.

What's the best guide to deadlifting without snapping my spine?

2018-02-21 05:14:13 UTC  

Deadlifts work grip strength. Deadlifts might "work the same muscles" but they work them in a different way. Doing only squats is not a substitute for deadlifts. Barbell rows work your biceps but just because they work the same muscles doesn't mean they're a substitute for specific bicep exercises. Adding another heavy, full body lift to your workout will only make you stronger

2018-02-21 05:21:19 UTC  

As for guides, I would look up anything by Boris Sheiko

2018-02-21 05:23:50 UTC  

With proper form and starting off light, and focusing on getting the form first, you won't hurt your back, and are just as safe as you are doing a squat

I also suggest checking out the YouTube channel untamed strength with Allen Thrall. He has a lot of good, no-bullshit advice for lifters.

deadlift on arm or leg day?

2018-02-22 14:27:11 UTC  

Some people will it on their leg day along with squats. I like to have a separate deadlift and back accessory day

2018-02-22 17:48:59 UTC  

Leg dayyyy

2018-02-22 17:53:13 UTC  

Deadlift day lol

2018-02-22 18:03:04 UTC  


2018-02-22 18:07:34 UTC  

Everyday is leg day for me, at least today is low bar and cgbp

2018-02-22 18:10:38 UTC  

Push day, pull day and extra day to hit your weak points. For 5 day a week routine, hit push and pull twice.

2018-02-22 18:10:54 UTC  

Push = bench, squat, press, triceps

2018-02-22 18:11:10 UTC  

Pull = deadlift, row, pull-ups, biceps

2018-02-22 20:12:11 UTC  

I have upper body and lower body days

2018-02-22 20:12:15 UTC  

6 days a week

2018-02-23 02:28:33 UTC  

Deadlift day fo sho.

2018-02-23 02:29:11 UTC  

I like to hit deadlift hard on Saturday morning and then eat a big ol lunch.

2018-02-23 11:38:59 UTC  

This is my routine. How to modify to add deadlifts? I have dynamic warm up, then either jump rope/plyo jump circuit, then either of these depending on the day, followed by a run.
-Upper Body Day
Bench Press
Bicep Curls
Incline Press
Lat-Pull Downs
Lat Pulls
Standing Shoulder Press
-Core work
Sit ups
Side Plank

-Lower Body Day
Leg curls (feet plantarflexed)
Leg Extensions
Calf raises (stairs; Straight Leg)
Calf Raises (stairs: Bent leg)
Leg Raises
Russian Twists

You don’t have enough back work

2018-02-23 14:23:07 UTC  

Only two back and no rows
2 pressing and no flyes
Random bicep and shoulder
Mostly front delt

2018-02-23 14:26:26 UTC  

For lower body
Only one compound movement
3 exercise isn’t enough

2018-02-23 14:26:42 UTC  

You write this yourself or did you find it?

2018-02-23 18:04:33 UTC  

I'm not a fan of 'upper body' and 'lower body' arrangement in general
