    It’s mostly a pointless exercise for anything other than heavier deadlifts. They don’t do much for real world application because the dangling arms will never be combined with the rest of the deadlift motion in real life. As for aesthetic development, it’s quite minor and overshadowed. Combine that with the generally higher risk of injury, compared to other lifts, and there’s not much reason to train diddy lifts aside from diddy lift competitions.

        Maybe a placebo effect. It trains mostly your back and quads while lightly engaging your arms and core. It’s a feel good exercise, but for athletic performance or aesthetics, I find them pointless.

          It actually barely hits your back at all. Your lower back is just such a small muscle that the minor loads it carries are enough to seriously fatigue it. Deadlift is primarily a leg and glute exercise.

    If you treat it like any of your other lifts and do it 3x8-10 instead of railing heavy singles you'll basically never possibly get injured. It has the highest rate of injury because every dude treats it as a defacto ego lift and goes with whatever weight they can crane their back in half and hitch up to lockout then drop or slam back down instead of using weights they can control all the way up and all the way down for reps.

            Controlled negative on a heavy deadlift is begging for a lumbar injury, especially if your back is already being stressed. I work manual labor, I feel it some days in my lower and middle back, I can’t afford to incur an injury of the spine.

                yes and no. I does mean setting the weight down, but it means keeping the muscle under tension as you do it and doing it slowly without abandoning form or allowing compensatory muscles to take over.

                Research as shown that the greatest muscle hypertropy (growth) occurs following the eccentric (controlled negative). So those guys you see in the gym slowly lowering their dumbells? those guys are going to grow much faster that the morons who just lift them up to their chin then drop them back to their waist.

                Trunk extension uses the lower back. You can change your mechanics when you do the trap bar to utilize more lower back by reducing leg extension and increasing trunk extension like you would with stiff leg. However, even then, back squat trains lower back to some degree. Even the standard form for hexbar deadlift has more trunk flexion and extension that back squat so it has to train the lower back anyways.

    Deadlifts are great. Maybe you could argue that something like a jefferson curl or zercher squat is more "functional" but if you ask me, training the legs, hips, and back to maximally exert themselves seems pretty functional to me.
    DYELs, glassbacks, and braindead gymbros will tell you to avoid them because ur spine will totally explode or Sam Sulek doesn't do them or whatever the hell but those people would have a heart attack if they saw how people trained in the, say, the Bronze Era anyway so frick them.

        I've done some good mornings but probably not enough. What I think may be happening is my core gets fatigued in the last few reps, so I lose my bracing strength, that's when I usually feel that subtle crackle in the lumbar.

          Start light and small if you need to, but consider an exercise that fully flexes the spine over something like RDLs so you can strengthen each individual part of the back in turn through the range of motion. Something like a Jefferson curl with a 5-10lb dumbbell might be a good starting point for you.

        The pain was only really bad one time, so I didn't deadlift for a week and then just worked my way back. But sometimes it would flare up again, and it took a long time to fully recover, about 2 months. Since I haven't deadlifted in months my back has been fine, but I'm not going to give up on the lift.
