No, never had pain doing deadlifts. The only nagging pain I get is in my right shoulder on occasion while doing shoulder exercises.

I dunno much about injury cures as they pertain to weightlifting.

JesusNEVERexisted said:How much was your best deadlift and about how much you weigh?

MontyBurns, same question.



I weigh 205 at 5'11 pounds and I don't do more than 385. I plateau'd hard at 315 pounds for a long time. I have no aspirations or intentions of being in any kind of competition. I'm just your average gym-goer with slightly more knowledge and frequency of workouts.

I could probably do one messy rep of like, 415 or something. Definitely not more than once. I honestly have no reason to do more, and I couldn't without eating and training for it. I'd be more happy with an endurance feat of 315 x 20 or something.

That 155 pound asian guy pretty well has me beat in anything and everything. I can only bench press somewhere in the area of 240.

. said:No, arching the back & using the legs while bench pressing is what pseudo powerlifters do to compensate for their lack of strength.

I used to bench press by bringing my feet off of the floor and bending my knees up towards my torso and THEN doing my reps. That's true lifting. It forces you to use only your upper body for the lift.

Also, when I belonged to Gold's Gym, I saw a number of people who weren't physically large who could do 1 rep deadlifts of enormous weight. The deadlift is one of those exercises that aren't very difficult to do and are amenable for lifting large amounts of weight. Same goes for seated leg presses - just about anyone can do more weight on that lift than they'd expect.



That IS how powerlifters bench press. Maybe they didn't 20 years ago, but they do now.

Of course seated leg presses are bullshit that you can cheat 900 pounds on by doing 1/10th of a rep.

Go find how many 155 pound people at your gym who can deadlift 475 pounds properly, though. I'm SURE you're going to find tons.

JesusNEVERexisted said:I've always done squats without going all the way down so your are 180 degrees parallel to the ground and never gotten hurt.

I may do one rep with perfect form out of 10 or 15 total but the rest aren't.

I also run UPHILL to keep my legs strong and that obviously helps.



Yeah, I mean, this stuff is all sorta up for debate and probably varies from person to person. I do incline treadmill as well. Lately I start at 3.5 speed and 3.0 incline, and incline one increment up 5 minutes or so. I go for 20-30 minutes depending if I'm going to switch over to elliptical afterwards. I typically don't go more than 7.0 incline. Occasionally for like the last minute I'll crank it up higher.

Here's a video of an expert powerlifting explaining bench press form. Hint: He describes arching your back and setting your feet properly, just like that asian kid did.

Any other genius tidbits for us?

. said:Um, that guy isn't exceptionally strong for his size.

At 170 lbs., I was able to bench 330 lbs. and do 3 reps with excellent form. Watch that guy trying to bench 260 lbs. His form is awful. He cheats by arching his back and using his legs to help lift the weight.

Not impressive at all.



Um, yeah, he is. A 500 pound deadlift at 155 pounds puts him nearly into national championship territory.

http://www.goheavy.net/records/viewrecordset.aspx?recordsetguid=c09587ba-427e-49d7-96c4-a0560ec5b9ae

His bench is relatively weaker. Some people only compete for one exercise, so that may be a moot point for him.

Oh, and :lol: at you talking about arching his back and using his legs. THAT'S PROPER POWERLIFTING BENCH PRESS FORM!

:lol:

Yeah, I mean, I do cheating barbell curls and the like.

There seems to be a large consensus that half or quarter squats cause damage to the knees, and that's the opinion of some pretty knowledgeable people in the field (i.e. Mark Rippetoe and others.)

In reality it probably boils down to how much weight you're using.

JesusNEVERexisted said:Doing a deadlift sumo style without an underhanded grip would be even more difficult than doing it the regular way right?

I know he's using straps but it would be even easier if he did an underhand grip with one hand and a traditional stance.



According to what he said on Youtube, he started doing sumo deads because he hurt his back, and normal form ones hurt too much. He said he doesn't get any pain from sumo ones.

I've never done sumo ones myself. It looks goddamn painful. I wouldn't like my knees being spread out like that, it freaks me out. I'm sure it's fine in reality, but in my mind it seems like it puts your knees in a vulnerable position. I use over / under grip for deadlifts. You're supposed to alternate them to build muscle evenly, but I never do.

. said:Squats are fucking bad for me. They're probably bad for 50% of everyone else too, whether they are in shape or not.



Squats done properly, i.e., down far enough, rehab knees. Quarter squats that people try to get away with are bad for you. You don't get hurt from properly executed squats.

That guy is VERY strong, though. Just a mishap there. He's only 155 pounds. Check out some of his other videos.

He deadlifts almost 500 in sumo style, gets his bench close to 300, etcetera.

I don't use the Smith machine for anything anymore. I did starting out. It doesn't put you on a natural plane of movement for anything.

It's probably pretty typical for any gym. Anyone who has been going to a gym for any length of time knows, when a new person shows up, there's a good chance you won't see them again in two weeks.

JesusNEVERexisted said:All right I will concede that point to you. It's not an issue for me since I'm VERY motivated.

Lou Ferrigno himself said the most important part of lifting is going directly against the force of gravity and free weights are the best.

Basically 100% of bodybuilders and powerlifters will tell you free weights are the best and you can do that from home.

Add a treadill for cardio and you're set!



Well, I agree completely. It's not exactly a secret that freeweights are the best. That's typically why half of a gym is freeweights.

That being said, I'd be missing a number of things at home that I don't have at the gym. Mind you, you don't technically NEED any of them, but tools are tools.

For cardio, I use the treadmill, elliptical, and stair machines. Most of the time I do treadmill, but to spice things up I use the other two. That's several thousands of dollars worth of equipment alone.

More shit I wouldn't have room for at home: A squat rack or power rack, or a cable machine.

You can even do without the barbell and just use the dumbells and the treadmill!



Bullshit. Gyms are not a scam. Most people cannot be motivated to workout at home. Fact. Aside from that, there's a helluva lot more variation that can be done at the gym that you can't do at home. I'm not even going to argue this point, as it's been done before.

Home gyms work just fine for SOME people, not most.

She looks pretty nice in that original picture. I like those big natural boobs.

But when you start having to wear outfits like this, things are getting bad.

There's actually some discussion of that out there. I think someone tracked down the general area of where the calls originated from. I don't recall the details, though. It might be in the discussion on the PLA site.
