    Do I really nead to dead lift?

    Post  tommy21 on Sat Mar 13, 2010 12:36 am

    I really aint getting on with dead lifts. Sad My back hurts when I do them and I feel knackerd after doing them.

    Every one says I MUST dead lift but If there is a way out of doing them I will be a happy bunny to say the least. Laughing

    From what you say you have no medical reason not to dead lift so you should grow some and get stuckin! If your new to it then theres no way you should be lifting kg's more than you can cope with. Go easy at first and it will come to you. Just be patient good things come to those who wait. Rolling Eyes

    Do I really need to dead lift? Do You need to lift weights at at?

    I've got to agree with masteron in the fact you don't seem to have any good valid reason not to dead lift i.e. medical reason. So you should be incorporating dead lifts in to your back work out.

    Let me explain a little about the importance of Dead lifts.

    Dead lift is the biggest compound movement you can do. It uses so many muscles you could almost say its a whole body session in exercise. not only are your back, Hamstrings and Glutes used heavily, your core, shoulders, arms and grip are also cultural to getting that bar off the ground.

    Compound movements are the nuts and bolts of building muscle because using many muscles at the same time initiates a number of muscle building processes in the body that cant be replicated.

    The dead lift is so much of a compound exercise its a 'push' movement as well as a 'pull' movement. You have to pull the bar with the arms and back and push upward with your legs. Now how many other exercises can you say that of?

    Exclamation The whole magic of dead lifting is your moving a dead weight, a weight that is static each and every rep. It's important you put the bar down at the end of every rep so each lift is from the very start with out using elastic energy.

    Seriously I would say if you can dead lift, then do so. If however there is a medical reason you can't then that's sad but not the end of the world. You as a newcomer to bodybuilding your not expected to be dead lifting huge amounts. Even if it's just the bar you are lifting then that is 100x better than not doing any. They really are that useful.

    I dont like to just concede the point but they are right aye.

    BUT u are doing it wrong. Ur posture /form is wrong if u are getn hurt.

    Try a belt to help keep ur back straight and yes it tires u out becuz it is such a big (full body) exercise.
    Think about it this way if u wana stop doing them.
    U will have all these *machine muscle development* and no defined,detailed literally sweat,blood and tears muscle. This is a quote from the 1st south african bodybuilder that went pro. *you show me a guy that can deadlift 200kg,and chances are i will show you a guy with a well developed back.*
    get ur form rite. no backing out.
    Very Happy
