Yes, IST was right. Deadlift is a meme exercise which trains lots of muscles but no one perfect. The risk vs reward ratio is terrible.
Before one week it happened again. Sudden sharp pain in my lower back followed by tightness and stiffness while pulling and I dropped immediately on my knees.
In my lifting history I injured myself 3 times and all time just because of deadlifts.
There is no perfect form. Everybody teaches it different and even if there is a perfect form, this will not apply to you.
Body ratios are different for everybody.
Someone with short legs and normal torso will have a more upright position while someone with long legs and short torso will have a very high hips position and his torso will be nearly parallel to the ground.
After I injured myself I had various thoughts like why I did this shit? What gave this exercise to me? If I would just train like all others in the gym dumbbells for chest and shoulder, machines for back and split squats etc which doesn’t compress your spine for legs, I would look so much better and could train all the time without injury break.
Powershitting is a meme and cope for people who have issues in their life.
I know no powershitter who has no back problems.
Should lifting not make us stronger and support our daily life’s instead of making us weaker by destroying our spines and joints?
Are trap bar deadlifts safer than normal deadlifts or should I completely avoid this exercise?
