Did it for years and thinking of going back to it. Plan being substitute the traditional back routine every other back day and do deads only. The density, lat and rear delt development was pretty amazing as I remember.

Have to be careful where to group them in because it's real easy to over train and go flat.

How do you perform this exercise correctly. Are you supposed to mix this with squatting, think somebodies avatar said that.

To do deadlifts correctly, avoid bending arms and lower back while lifting barbell from floor to upright position.  Mixing a variety of different exercises is better for overall development. 

To increase testosterone, exercise is probably not more important than diet, sleep, lifestyle, genes and health.

I used to do them as a finishing move on back/bicep days...........good overall move + it stretched the bi's out. My lower back is suspect so I never went REAL heavy or used them as my primary movement.
 Never made them a staple so I don't know how much I ever benefited from them.......

Deadlifts are my favorite exercise. I prefer to go heavy as hell in sets of 1-3 reps. They're pretty taxing on the CNS so I would recommend only doing them once a week and I try to separate them by a few days from doing squats. On leg day, I like doing RLDLs for my hamstrings. My record for a standard deadlift is 505 lbs when I weighed 205 lbs

Sets of 1-3..lol. I used to that back in college also with close to nickel.

I'll try 'em every other week and see if I'm getting thickness. Power belt, some chalk, no straps and 4-5 good sets with 225 or so. Then walk out fresh. Over training is everybody's worst enemy.

Deadlifts are a good way to mess your back up good i would not reccomend those unless your trying to win a powerlift competiton.But be carefull a blown out back will put u out of commision.

yep, if you have any kind of back issue better to avoid them deadlifts or your spine will look like a ? lol. I have rediscovered squatting to help strengthen my fukked up back. I don't rack as much as you guys but as always good form is always key. GL training Gents.

If you want to know how to do the dead lift correctly, go on youtube and type in Mark Rippetoe dead lift.

I would never use dead lifts as a finisher. I would never use straps either because it takes away from developing grip strength.

This is a common misconception.

There is a correct way and an incorrect way to do any type of exercise. Most people go the incorrect route.

No, your honestly not risking a back injury. Maybe if you had some pre existing condition then I could see a risk for injury or mae if you are trying to pull way too much weight.

Deadlifts may be the best exercise there is.

You are close. The squat is the single best exercise that one can do.

The squat if done properly works just about every muscle in your body.

The problem is that people are friggin stupid and do not know what the darn they are trying to do. Most people "leg press" their squats.

Definitely. Deads done properly will actually strengthen your low back and minimize any chronic low back problems from arising in later life.

Start tomorrow. I used to go over under bar grip (shoulder width) and alternate that grip on every set to keep the strong side in balance with the weaker. Anybody disagree on that grip?

RickM I can tell you know your garbage.
