    Why are you dropping the weight anon? I pull 190kg and still set the weight down quietly.

      OP

      It gets tougher when doing 5pl8. Also I'm doing it strapless for reps.
      Why should I limit the amount of weight I can handle by putting it down slowly? It's not like I'm getting any extra benefit out of it.

      Take the bodyweight pill and just walk for cardio.
      Happiness increased exponentially when I stopped chasing numbers no one actually cared about.

      I do. Again. I don't want to be a skinny weak DYEL. Bodyweight exercises only work if you have a lot of bodyweight to being with. Pure calisthenics is less than ideal.

      >What do bros?
      how can we possibly answer that? are you autistically screeching and slamming the bar into the floor? stop doing that shit

      You should try training hard once in your life.

      I guess ask him to provide a deadlift platform, if he says no cancel membership and find a PL gym

      No such thing in the shithole where I live. Every other gym close by is even worse. I'm saving some money for a private gym but until then this'll have to do.

        >Extra benefit
        Yeah you are? You're skipping half the lift, how functional is being able to lift it up if you can't even put it down. You're not controlling the weight, just pulling it up to your knees and saying it's a pr

        • 4 weeks ago
          OP

          Competitions don't require you to control the weight, they require you to lift it.
          I don't really care about "functional", even if I did, I doubt controlling the weight downwards is any functional.
          I would understand if it were a Romanian deadlift where the hamstring are being stretched, but a normal deadlift trains the erector muscles statically. So lowering the weight slowly doesn't provide any benefit.

          I meant there are no PL gyms nearby. Just shitty normie gyms. Such is the case of the shithole where I live.

          5pl8 probably the tipping point where you'd want to switch to an actual PL gym which will have quality bars instead of whatever boxgym you go to now. You'll be the weakest dude there for a long time but it's a chill environment as.long as you don't pull sumo kek

              Rack pulls must be set down very gently otherwise you destroy the bar and the rack. And a rack pull at just about any height is much easier than a deadlift, even very low ones. You dumb.

    Tell him that if he's ever buying new equipment, that he should consider investing in a deadlifting platform. That way, trainees can do deadlifts and he won't have to worry about damaged floor
    Also I think some platforms have some sort of sound deadening on the bottom to make impacts less loud

    Find a new gym.
    Focus on squats + RDLs meanwhile.

    Any time I have to lift at a gym with no platforms, I just do that. If I have to lift there for a while I change my programming accordingly. Your deadlift is probably not going to decrease in the meantime.

    Same deal with flat bench, if the gym doesn't have a proper combo rack I am not going to bench heavy. Maybe some close grip for high reps, but more likely dumbbels. Push press or strict press becomes my main upper lift in stead.

          But you cannot make gains with such a small and weak bench
          Just like how you can’t make any gains by just doing 20 pushups in your room every other day
          It gets to a point where it’s just nothing, and you need to either greatly increase the numbers of reps you’re doing, or just add more weight to the bar
          It’s the natural progression of wanting to make gains and naturally becoming stronger when making those gains

            You can still progress in weight if you're lifting for hypertrophy. 1 plate doesn't have to be the limit, but higher one-rep max doesn't need to always be the end goal.
            To use your pushup analogy, someone who only does 20 pushups a day will see little fitness improvement. But they can either start doing 20 weighted pushups and progressively adding weight, or more bodyweight reps. Either of those progressions will improve fitness levels. Adding weight isn't the end-all/be-all of fitness. If someone is miserable trying to progress in weight, like in OP's pic, maybe they should focus on muscle endurance/hypertrophy rather than a higher one-rep max.

          You proved my point. You're a DYEL with 0 muscle mass.
          Muscle grows from progressive overload. If you don't track your numbers, if you don't make sure they are growing you are failing to "lift for hypertrophy". You are just coping.

    Obviously you take the 20 lb hit and start setting the bar down gently. Despite what all the dyel morons in this thread say, skipping as much of the eccentric as you can is desirable in the deadlift because the eccentric isn't making you stronger but is is fatiguing you and hence limiting how much you can lift (and if you lift kore you'll be stronger). But it's not that big of a deal and controlling the eccentric sufficiently for it to not be a disturbance won't make or break your diddies beyond a ~20 lb adjustment.
    Or find a new gym, but that's usually shit advice and often not an option.

    Just train a variation that limits the amount of weight you have to use. Snatch grip, stiff leg, zercher, even deficit could work. You’ll still get plenty strong with those
