    I've been working out since highschool and I've never attempted a deadlift because it looked very unnatural as an exercise.

    Deadlift equal dumb the chance of injury is huge. You only need to drop to the knee for results never go all the way to the ground. Drain Yates never went low on deadlifts.

    I would have to agree with him. As a pt I wouldn't have clients (especially beginners) doing deadlifts, even though I was always taught that deadlifts are essential to most workout programs. There are so many great leg and back exercises out there with little risk of injury, looking for those safer alternatives would be in most peoples interests (i.e. the average gym goer who just wants to get fit or lose some weight).

    Dear Joe, you are one of the coolest guys on the internet and I truly love your style, but I must say that your seemingly irrational and visceral aversion to plant-based lifestyles is quite disappointing. If you only did a bit of serious research on this topic you would understand the huge environmental and ethical implications of feeding and killing animals for food, when we can perfectly avoid doing so and lead healthy lives while protecting our decaying biosphere. Would you be willing to make a podcast as a serious debate between the most well-respected activists or researchers in the environmental aspects of leading a plant-based vs meat-based diets?

    The sole reason people fuck themselves up on deadlifts is ego lifting, trying to pull too much and having tight muscles resulting in poor form. The deadlift is the best overall compound movement fact.

    never liked deadlifts. I just don't like the idea of all that weight and the motion involving the lower back. I don't care if there's no risk if done properly, a mistake there and I mean once you hurt your back that shit lingers for life.

    He contradicted himself as soon as he tried explaining why to shouldn’t deadlift, “you go into any football or college weight room they’re power cleaning...” so if you think about a power clean & how to perform it properly with good technique, there’s 4 positions. 1.) grabbing the bar, creating stability throughout your body while the bars on the ground 2.) bar at knee level, flat back, slightly bent knees. 3.) continue bring the bar up while bringing your hips to the bar... I’m not explaining position 4 because just thinking about those first three, what does that sound like? A freaking dead lift! In strong man & powerlifting technique barely matters as far as completing the lift, so when a former competitor finally realizes how horrible that is for there body (listen too Eddie Hall talk about his power lifting career) they either leave the sport completely or walk around saying dumb stuff like this. The major keys to lifting weights to stay healthy: Understand your own body, no two peoples body’s are the same so lifting patterns could be very different. Use proper technique so your body can actually keep itself in a safe position while performing the lift. And last + most important NEVER sacrifice technique for numbers, if your stick to your regimen (considering your eating well + getting good sleep) the numbers will come, patience. I could go on for days explaining why this is bs & why his examples are really just excuses to not do a very complex yet great exercise.

    Bullshit! I've done deadlifts for yrs an have a strong lower back from it! Deadlifts are not the problem, the problem is the same as with anything, not warming up not allowing recovery time jerking trying to lift too much ect. Of course there's risks just like jogging or anything you can't get benefits without risks. And anyone who says they got arthritis from sports, it wasn't the sports that caused arthritis, it's injuries that caused it. Laying on the couch all the time causes arthritis too..

    I used to squat and dead-lift 600 lbs. (And no roids thank you very much.) I attribute the arthritis in my back today to those two exercises. If I had it to do over, I would stay away from them. I never did morning glories, but that's another bad one. Your muscles are capable of generating more power than your skeleton frame can handle. I would go lighter and do more reps today.

    There’s a risk to most every lift involving weights in a gym especially as it gets heavier. I wouldn’t say stop deadlifting just because one guy says not to.

    Deadlifts, bent over rows and anything that involves lifting weight from bottom to top is fantastic for developing crazy strength and muscle growth. But it comes with a price. It’s called sciatic problems. Ever since that day long ago I hurt my back and now I have permanent sciatic lower back pain that runs down my leg. Only way to “support” it is by stretches. Guys I won’t tell you what to do but take my advice. Skip deadlifts and do pull ups or weighted pull downs instead. Once you fuck up your disks and develop sciatic pain it’s no going back from there. Just take a look at our hero ronie Coleman.

    Please do not take this guy's rant and the title as a concrete thing for people that are thinking about lifting and body building. DeadLift is one of the most fundamental movements in strength training, however if done wrong you can have serious injuries; like any other exercise. The key is to have proper form and learn from people that know what they're doing and can evaluate you. I have seen people go too high on the wights while starting out or they have their backs arched. If you see someone do these type of things, it is your duty as a fellow gym goer to let the person know how to do it correctly. Just don't be a dick or obnoxious about it when you approach them. Remember, we all start from somewhere and if you had that one person show you the proper way, how appreciative would you feel afterwards?
