      That's funny. I herniated a disc and used deadlifts as rehab. Now I've done over 600 and my back never bothers me anymore. Of course, I actually learned how to deadlift correctly unlike you.

        I had a lot of back pains and I also have scoliosis. Thanks to deadlifting and squats my back hurts no more, and I lift in excess of 200kg deadlifts and 150kg squats. It's weird how it works differently for some people.

              It's psychological. Squat and deadlift are almost identical movements if you are going all the way down. Back has to be kept in position with squats but you also get that stretch in the bottom that springs you out, so in the end it balances out.
              Geoffrey Nipples says to just load up the bar, step back, and rerack it to get used to the feeling of weight on your back. Pin squats can help too but then you don't get the springy stretch out of the hole.

          Don't spend too much time getting ready for the next rep. Lifts from the floor let you put it down and catch your breath a second, but when you're under the bar you're only getting worse, so taking like 5 seconds on the last rep just trying to catch your breath might kill your rep.
          For largely the same reason, work on your descent speed. Obviously you're not supposed to dive bomb it, but as I'm sure you're aware as it gets heavier going down often gets slower, rather than faster, and this kills the next rep just as much.

    I grew out of deadlifts when I realized that the only thing DLs make you better at is doing heavier DLs. There's a million other exercises that have very little risk of injury for your spinal erectors. I understand wanting a strong lower back but doing the "this allows me to lift the heaviest" exercise just seems like an ego stroke.
    They're just generally so physically taxing that it impacts the quality of my session.
    Also none of the gyms I got to have proper DL platforms so swapping plates out is always a bitch

      How many sets and reps do you go for on leg press?

      • 4 months ago
        Anonymous

        I do 8, 20rep "rest-pause" style sets. The set is finished when all 20 reps are completed. Both quads must touch my torso to count as a rep. I can take as many breaks as I want but I always try to get the first 10 without disrupting my cadence. I add weight when my first three sets make it to 15 reps without pausing. I do the leg press sets after doing some combination of glute/ham exercises so that my quads are fresh and my glutes/hams are fatigued. I don't load the sled very heavy. My intention is bringing the quads to near failure as many times as possible. I've been doing this for about 3 months and my legs feel amazing.

    Can I do DLs with an anterior pelvic tilt? In general I'm not a fan of standing exercises because they make me suoer aware of my shoulders and hips and I never know if I do them good enough. Plus the doc says I have scoliosis to some degree, tho never mentioned if I should do anything about it.

    So can I still try these? Maybe with not max possible weight just to learn the form and get my joints get used to them.

    I stopped Deadlifting at 26. Squatted 350 at age 30 and decided to just stick to 225 at most for now on.
    I lift for health and aesthetics. Im not a power lifter, and I don't really care about PRs. There are plenty of other things to do besides DLs that are quicker and less dangerous. Same with squatting, I never go heavier than 225 and my quads are just as big as when I was going heaver.

      Good for you. 225 is a solid number for anyone to be able to squat comfortably outside of competitive weightlifting (which is a tiny portion of the population).

          Interesting. I've always found squats more 'dangerous', insofar as there feels like more risk while attemping a heavy lift. Not sure how people injure themselves deadlifting when you can just drop the bar when it's too heavy. But all of our bodies are different I guess. Stay safe and do what works for you!

            Squats are easy for me.
            >just drop the bar if it's too heavy
            That doesn't fucking work when it doesn't feel bad until it's too late and your back suddenly fucking tears out of nowhere. Dumbass.

        Honestly I have no good reason. I have never been injured from them before but they just always felt unnatural to me. Maybe its my body type or something.
        I also simply dont enjoy them. It takes too long to setup, they tax all my energy and I just feel that there are other exercises that give the average lifter the same benefits.
