      seeing how strongmen competitors deadlift compared to actual powerlifters i'm not surprised this guy is recommending against it

        I like cleans but Ive never been consistent with them. I'll always do deads theres no better feeling in the weight room IMO

            The log, farmer’s walk or frame carry have neutral grips for the hands, less strain on the grip.

                    Dont know about being hungry, although I was told working out with a full stomach puts too much strain on your stomach because its inflated. Not even your stomach, but all your organs are cramped at that point. I dont like being dependent on stuff like bananas or something. Like if I dont have my tackling fuel my mind will work against me.

                      I feel like if you’re deadlifting as much as this dude, yeah it’s probably not the best for your joints. But like for your average Joe, I think it’s fine lol.

                        You can do deadlifts until you can’t any longer.

                          Haven't watched the video but I agree. So many ppl screw up their backs with deadlifts. I'll do really light deadlifts/RDLs to stretch..but I'd never do heavy

                                  What he means is don't go mixed grip on heavy deadlifts always use pronated overhand grip

                                              Yeah, I don't do these. Or classic barbell squats either. Really good for your muscles but IMO they're just too risky when it comes to potential injury to your spine and back.

                                                  I hate deadlifts, they take way too much out of me. Don't need to tell me twice not to do them, I would rather do bent over rows and a few other movements any day. Fuck deadlifts.

                                                      Kind of stupid tbh. Deadlifting is regarded as the top excercise for developing back size and strength. Obviously student athletes shouldnt be doing them in high school weight rooms but it has more advantages then just "deadlifting for the sake of dead lifting". Everyone loves the backsquat but obviously it puts tremendous strain on your knees and lower back, but I see no one telling you to not do it.

                                                          Good because I loathe doing them.

                                                            You go to those same gyms were they arent dead lifting because of the risk vs reward all those guys are doing leg extensions.complaining about blowing out your back, then train your lower back properly and stop using weight belts you fat dumb fuck. stop just trying to lif tand move heavy things and actually take some time understanding how to do that properly .this fat strongman who literally does the definition of high risk is just repeating what he has been told by other not really in shape but strong dudes. strongmen are always calorie bulking overweight dudes who are always a waste of potential. this dudes such a retard.

People have a poor perspective of strength these days going up in the gym I have seen this very odd transition and let me tell you something I see to many people going into powerlifting with out proper protocol, no stabilization or balance training

I never got hurt doing it, could do 225 no matter what probably 280 if I trained at it more. I am genetically predisposed to be more quad dominant in my lifts and I'm sitting here hurt from deads.
