Are deadlifts even necessary? Is the risk of snapping your shit up worth doing basically a modified squat?

they don't only build your entire posterior chain and grip strength, they also toughen you up mentally

AMRAP deadlift once a week is the best training of mental toughness I've ever found along with ice baths

Isaac Sanders

Not sure if they are necessary but they work my back way better than any other movement
The deadlift and squat are very different
Squat twice a week, deadlift once
Go with weights you can handle, if your form starts breaking down, drop the bar.

Okay pussy whatever. You're at no risk of hurting yourself if you correct your form and don't max out. I personally prefer power cleans but I still do deadlifts for the benefits they provide for hamstring strength, grip, and lower back stability.

no necessary, just meme lifts people hold onto as gospel due to issues regarding their own masculinity.

Also learn good form before attempting or you will fuck your shit up

after a certain point they become more risk than reward, unless you're a competitive powerlifter. i'd say once you can pick up 500lbs there's really no reason to keep going.

What is wrong with you? Any lift performed incorrectly will snap something.

Oh, you're fucking retarded, disregard my previous question.

Oliver White

Sub em out for Trap bar if you aren't going into powerlifting, less risk of snapping your shit up and greater activation of the posterior chain

Aaron Barnes

Technically, working out isn't necessary at all. All you really need is a good diet and just a good run outside to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So tell me why you workout at all.

The most overrated lift atm surpassing the bench press a few years ago. Honestly the OHP/squat is a more accurate assessment of strength than the deadlift.

This is my mentality exactly. Once I pulled 500 last year I was satisfied. I barely deadlift anymore. I just shrug really heavy and deadlift like once a month. My focus shifted to bench since it’s underrated these days and everyone squats.

Are deadlifts even necessary?
I hope they're not. It's literally the one exercise that I can't help but feel like I'm doing it wrong, and no matter how many videos I watch, I still feel like I'm putting myself at great risk to snap my shit up. but I still do them twice a week because everyone says you have to do them so...that's where I'm at.

not doing str8 leg deadlifts for hamstring flexibility/strength.
Other than that deadlifts are not the most ideal for functional longevity. I look at people doing these and heavy squats and just pity the fools. Like what type of complex must you have to believe it's an ideal exercise.

Henry Bennett
Henry Bennett

don't keep on doing it. never do exercises that feel wrong.

deadlifts are dangerous and when they fuck up your spine, they do it in one spectacular go, not gradually. Trust me, you *don't* want back problems. I got hit in an accident and had some mild issues with my upper back, and trust me, this made me realize how spinal injuries really aren't a fucking joke.

Yes, but double overhand only. No mixed, no hooks, no straps. Deads are king when it comes to working out forearms.

lats in a deadlift

The lats are barely capable of bracing against the spine and are shit at keeping your scapula retracted throughout the deadlift movement. If you're trying to use your lats in a deadlift then you're retarded and probably take advice from trannies like Matt Kroc.

Jaxson Reed
Jaxson Reed

your lats keep your arms from swinging forward, they are used indirectly in the movement
