      At what point did you grow out of this pointless ego lift?

      that's the thing; it's not a great leg exercise, it makes you go T-rex mode, it's not a great back exercise, there is always some teenage prodigy on tiktok who can mog the hell out of you on DL weight, and you will never be the strongest deadlifter in peoples' memories... worst of all as an ego lift it looks terrible and isn't a "cool" looking lift at all. It makes you look like you're about to shit yourself. Bonus: it will you tear your biceps

      This but for squats and barbell bench. Will always love the deadlift since picking something heavy off the floor fulfills some base instinct I have, but I only train it when I got room for it and I'm feeling good.

              bro you obviously missed the past 2000 years of history where Rome fell and then the byzantine empire/arab world preserved and advanced all the knowledge of humanity while whites toiled in the mud for 1000 years and died off from plague. It was "the browns" who literally enabled the renaissance to occur as western scholars "rediscovered" the classics by making trips to the arab world to study

                Despite the sort of golden age of the middle east had for a while (which pales in comparison to the Roman heights before it and the European heights after it by the way) it is impossible to read the history of the last 2000 years and not see a pretty obvious hierarchy on who the "achievers" were kek. A fucking log on the ground could see it. All civilizations have ups and downs but the Muslim world's highest high was pretty mediocre compared to the European world. The Arabs etc. did have some moments of relatively notable success though for sure which is more than some groups can say.

                The chinks had moments of high achievement. So did the Egyptians obviously, you can mention the Persians, even the Poos in their own way. However the Europeans of course take the ribbon and it isn't even close.

              That's exactly his point though, famous inventors are part of the same extended family AKA race. As whites, we are more related to each other than we are to you. That's just genetics, that's in our DNA. Collectivizing our achievements though IMO does take away from our high performing individuals that should be recognized on their own as exceptional.

                Try calling a Frenchman and an Italian "fellow whites" a few centuries back. This whole "white, brown, black etc." identifier is a recent mutt phenomenon. People (non-mutts) refer to each other by their ethnicities, and normal people don't need to latch on to the achievements of their countrymen. My great great grandad had multiple slaves and I couldn't care less. Whatever he done back then has no bearing on me.

                Having slaves is not an achievement, in fact your great great grandfather was probably a real lazy fuck. How you could categorize that as an achievement is beyond me, I'm sure you feel guilty about it and that's why you hold your current stance.

                If it really has no bearing on you then why aren't your proud of your heritage and who you are? What's the point in living if you have no identity, no culture?
                And don't try to say white Americans have no culture. We have a culture, just half of it, which is the more conservative culture isn't exported.

                You make a good point, but when I look at people who held slaves, I look at them the same way I see people today who employ illegal immigrants, taking jobs and fair wages away from poor and underprivileged Americans.

                Slavery didn't end because we suddenly saw blacks as people, slavery ended because it's like meth for governments. It's free, it produces some productivity and some wealth but it removes potential jobs from the economic system. Everyone eventually agreed that it would be better to pay people to do these things rather than enslave people to do them, because then you have customers which can help support the rest of the system instead of slaves who don't participate.

                The major material difference between what was going on back then and what is going on now with illegal immigration is that the people back then could have NEVER reasonably expected that a group of people would be so goddam insane that they would fight a war to turn them loose like that. People know this now with immigrant labor.

                Southern education has been no different than northern education since the 1960s bozo.

                Which is to say the north finally got their way after immediately attempting the same thing in reconstruction when they appointed freedmen as principles/teachers/uni presidents/etc. (and legalized miscegination to boot).

                Anyways hard labor has always been dictated by varying forms of serfdom, slavery, debt, rent etc. that has never not been the case until the heretofore unknown material prosperity and technology (farming machines) of the 1950s onward. Look at how the north imported dregs from Ireland and worse into their big concrete consompolitan urban greaseholes as more or less serf populations of "huddled masses." Even now the north has lead the charge importing more illegal immigrants labor from South of the border than there ever were slaves to start with. Abe Linvoln was literally the first major proponent of "unlimited immigration." So the south wasn't doing anything that bizarre especially when you remember it was thoroughly unfathomable in the time that theor norther neighbors would be so goddam insane as to turn them loose and give them the vote lol. That was a mistake on their part.

                It's not an achievement, I just stated a fun. I was td a lot of stories about him but honestly, none of it matters to me in terms of who I am as a person. I don't have "pride" for being randomly assorted into this race. I live for myself and my family and loved ones. My identity is something I make for myself. It's not bestowed upon me.

                Also, I don't know why I have to explain this to you but European cultures, especially northwestern, southwestern, southern and northern European cultures developed side by side and all play an integral role in each other's history, language and genetics. Charlemagne, Napoleon, Hitler, Caesar are all leaders who influenced the culture, language and governmental systems in each of their own respective moments in time in European history.

                The vikings, the romans, the normans, the franks, the nazi's, the communists, etc etc all influenced european history as a whole. Languages which have latin roots derive from ancient periods, governmental systems derive themselves from ancient periods. The brutal feudalist system which so many of these countries practiced influenced their culture, their language, their food, art, history, architecture, behavior everything. Everything is influenced.

                I find it hilarious that you make this argument when we live in the times of the European Union and NATO. Obviously both of these suck but the underlying effort of uniting Europeans together as one people is not faulty or mistaken in my opinion.

                >underlying effort of uniting Europeans together as one people is not faulty or mistaken in my opinion.
                This will simply never happen. All those peoples you have mentioned are different. For centuries, people who look like one another have been killing each other due to not being from the same area. It's just the way it is. Proximity with other people, whether they are similar to you or not, will always cause conflict.

                It's perfectly natural for people to have pride in the achievements of their people. Having said that some people do cross a line and conflate these things with personal achievements, which is retarded. But it is equally retarded to say people shouldn't have pride in their ancestors. Also, I'm not suggesting Euros should ever stop respecting their more regional ethnic classifications but goddam modern history is basically a big crash course on why it would have been better if they had cultivated a more American "white" sense of identity instead of kneecapping themsleves with constant infighting.

                Also even in Yurope all of the modern races are the product of various European admixtures. These component parts along with defining eras in their regional history and culture have sort of "minted" a new race of people if you will. The bongs are a great example of this. And if you get too far into the weeds artistically you begin to see the wisdom of the American style "white" type of identity. It is hard for the autist to understand but there is a great deal of practical utility in seeing the "major" categories of people even if these classifications are heavy handed and imperfect (white, black, Asian, Arab, New world Latin, etc.)

                I agree that having pride in your ancestors and whatnot isn't a bad thing in a modern sense, where your mind is constantly under psyops attack from people who want you to have pride in things like consuming media and whatnot. It just gets stupid sometomes like ITT

                That's the thing, you weren't randomly assorted into your race. You have a misunderstanding of existence. Things do not happen by chance.

                So what exists as "you" can only exist from your birth and experiences up to this point. You are an entirely unique human being (I assume, but some IST AI videos have me nervous.) If "you" had been born to an African family you wouldn't be "you" you are a lot more like a firecracker. Your fuse was lit and you exploded, there will never be another configuration of neurons and DNA that will produce an exact replica of "you" ever again. You are entirely unique, even down to the molecular level.

                There is no magic pachinko machine that exists before everyone's born that sorts them into different groups of people. There is no selector, as far as I know.

                Based on observations, I think we are the culmination and consolidation of our evolution. You could have genetic memories from your ancestors, there are little pieces of them inside of you. Little quirks, it's 40% software and 60% hardware because of gene expression and how your genes get expressed differently depending on stimuli.

                No matter what you do you are fundamentally connected to your distant ancestors, you are not "something new" and something "special" you are running on the same hardware the anglo saxons and vikings etc, maybe even the indo aryan or anatolian farmers that came before them. You aren't a brand new design, by any stretch of the imagination. There are many haplogroups that make up "you" and in a way you are a physical manifestation of your peoples history, but you as a conscious individual are like a tornado, wild fire.. You were only ever going to be you, if you were someone else you wouldn't be you, you wouldn't exist at all.

                You literally wouldn't exist if "you" were black. Because you cannot exist as anything else, you are a neural network built from the hardware of your ancestors and you are utterly unique down to the molecule.

                You don't understand the meaning of the word "you" like I said, you're unique. You can't happen again, you have billions of neurons, and that's just your neuron's we're not even talking about everything else that makes you you.

                You will never happen, ever again. Your formation of neurons is unique, you've got billions of them and they have hundreds of ways of communicating with each other. When you say "you could have been a starving African child" it's a sentence that is factually incorrect. Because that starving African child is a different person with a different history, with a different set of hardware and software.

                You seem to believe that consciousness or a "soul" exists outside of your physical being, but if it does it doesn't matter because we can't use it for anything. We can't tap into it, we can't observe it. So even if your soul existed in an ancient Mongolian mounted archer, it doesn't matter because it has no bearing on who you are because you are a unique conscious being- which BY THE WAY is constantly changing. Your neurons are not static, your brain doesn't just stay the same forever. It ages, old bridges atrophy and new neural bridges are built- your brain from year 8 and your brain from year 23 are two entirely different brains with very little of the same structure and scaffolding besides what is vital for development.

                You may ask yourself, why aren't multicellular organisms immortal- what is stopping us from being that way? Why can't our DNA just build an immortal body that lasts forever? Well it solved this problem a long time ago, reproduction is our version of immortality. You are the sum of your parts, you cannot exist, which, this is absurd if you meditate on it, unless your ancestors passed on their genes to create you.

                Your literal past lives are your ancestors, because you are literally a consolidation of all of them on a material level. So when you say that you could have been some mongol, that's bullshit unless you had a mongol ancestor. Or unless the soul exists outside of our physical, material being. Which makes it completely irrelevant to what we're talking about. Because neither of us know any more about it than the other.

And if you get too far into the weeds artistically you begin to see the wisdom of the American style "white" type of identity. It is hard for the autist to understand but there is a great deal of practical utility in seeing the "major" categories of people even if these classifications are heavy handed and imperfect (white, black, Asian, Arab, New world Latin, etc.)

        holy cope, the science on male attractivity has been settled and it's a fact that women generally prefer dark men over mayo monkeys. the only race less attractive to females are pajeets and asian "men" but every woman would prefer a black, med or arab men over some pale loser.
        ever wondered why only asians and white bois care about deadlifting? it's because they think that it will make up for their lack of masculinity but outside of other asian and white losers nobody cares about it, especially not females

      If you fucked you back up, you need to go down in weight and practice your technique again. It takes thousands of hours of practicing technique for you not to fuck up your back and proper technique is also dependent on your build, short guys and tall guys, people with long femurs or long tibia will perform the lift differently with proper form. Because you have different bio mechanics, because your limbs are literally different lengths in proportion to each other.

      The right way for you is different than the right way for another guy. Find someone experienced who looks like you and figure out how they deadlift, there is a standardized form and technique you should start with that might apply to you. Try that first for awhile and see what happens, but never ego lift. Ego lifting on deadlift is snap city, you will fuck yourself up. I have a technique that works perfect for me and my legs are long as shit.

      315 double overhand raw no lifting belt, no pain. Only been lifting for a year or so cumulatively.

        My technique is getting parallel with the barbell, starting with it about an inch away from my shins- I do a narrow frog toed style because that's what I was taught. My feet aren't too narrow together but they need to provide good structure to actually lift a lot of weight. I keep my back straight and lift with my legs, almost like I'm leg pressing the weight off of the ground. I carefully and cautiously allow my erector spinae to right me automatically as I pull up. I lock out but I don't lean back, as that is snap city.

        I never carefully put the weight back down, that is snap city. I let it drop and everyone else who thinks I shouldn't can eat shit and die.

    When I stopped caring what other people think and started pulling high rep sumo sets which are better for my frame. All the same benefits to the posterior chain without risking your spine. Pulling conventional every week is idiotic. Even most trainers prefer romanians.

      Sumo's don't build mass the way conventional deadlift does. Like I said, I pulled 315 yesterday night and my back feels awesome- besides delayed onset muscle soreness which is typical of training.

        Anonymous

        It entirely depends on your build. Someone with short limbs and a long torso needs to pull sumo to have the same back angle as someone with long arms. My back is parallel to the ground when I try to pull conventional which is not at all ideal for numbers, hypertrophy, or safety.

        I never have to do anything remotely similar to those movements in daily life. I have to pull from the floor often, but usually carry it after that. So maybe weighted carries have a bit more utility tbh

          The explosive movement element of cleans is what makes them far superior to the slow static deadlift. I can attest from football that the guys who show skill at the fast snatching type motion will always be better players. In life it is usually about explosive movement and that is what most lifters miss in their routines tbqh.

            They will always be better players because they're naturally more explosive, not because cleans made them explosive

              You can certainly get your mind and body more accustomed to fast explosive movements through training and you can improve in that area. Surely there is some amount of predetermined skill in this area but it can always be trained. It's the same as anything lol.

              But yes I think irl strength is like 80% explosive movements rather than slow static strength movements. If you are trying to look better something like cleans will probably be worthless though.

                To an extent. My point is that the fact that they're better at cleans than they are at deadlifts it isn't an indicator that deadlifts are worthless for strength

                No but it is a clear indicator that people who are better at explosive movements are better at applying their strength to most real life movements in general which is apparent and obvious I believe.

                Let's keep in mind that my original point was that cleans are better for real life movements vs deadlifts. I stand by that point especially for people who neglect explosive movements in their routines.

                They're better at sports. Daily activities don't really require the kind of explosive strength necessary to sprint, jump, throw, etc.
                >especially for people who neglect explosive movements in their routines.
                Of course, you shouldn't neglect them. Even so I think the general population would benefit more from only static strength training over only explosive strength training.

                Sports much more accurately capture the types of "real life" movements we are talking about imho- particularly contact sports like handegg.

                And the problem is that the general population almost exclusively only does static slow movements already. There is no shortage of that lol.. People in general neglect explosive movements in weightlifting.

                I know that. I think they shouldn't. Still, I don't think it's wise to have them primarily practice explosive drills over static strength movements.

                Idk I mean shoving people, throwing something over your shoulder, punching, throwing things, there are tons of things where it is useful. In general it is just better if people got used to moving explosively in that way imho.

                I mean it sounds like we basically agree except for the degree to which explosive movement is used every day so I'm not going to like argue I guess.

    If you can’t do a proper deadlift, just say that. A majority of my back day consists of deadlifts, and it works tremendously for strengthening my back, improving my posture, and overall is a great posterior workout in general. Sure, there are people who throw on ridiculous amounts of weight and ignore every bit of form and muscle connection just to get the weight up. That’s like any lift. But when done properly, you aren’t actually about to tell me that deadlifts are a great foundational lift to improve overall posterior health and strength.

    Protip: fitness blogs and influencers are a horrible sources to get workout tips from. It’s pretty common for these people to post articles like “deadlifts are killing your gainz” and “why you should ditch deadlifts” cause they know it’s going to draw in clicks.

    Tweaked my lower back deadlifting a few years ago and it hasn't been the same since. After a few months I felt like it was fully recovered and tried to ease back into deadlifting. Ended up reaggravating the injury within a few weeks just doing babyweight. I have now accepted that doing higher volume, lower weight exercises is probably the more sensible thing for me now that I'm in my mid 30s.

    I like deadlifting because its fun but I have been moving around a lot because of work and the bars in my new gym are absolute pig iron garbage with no grip, they feel like someone rubbed oil on them. So I was struggling and at one point failing to do the same weight I did last week at a different gym no problem. I probably looked like an ego lifting ass retard but it was making me so angry I kept trying to make the rep. Damn....maybe I was ego lifting.

    I still do them, but I'm starting think about not aiming for going super heavy (by my standards)
    Like I just turned 25, just lifted 315 with a normal barbell for one rep.
    Part of me really wants to stack more weight on there and continue to lift more.
    But I'm also not getting younger. Thinking maybe I should stick to just 315 and increase reps to boost strength without potentially compromising myself in the future.
    I used to use the trap bar. I could do like 350+ for reps with it.
