Yep, that is actually how we were taught to deadlift when I was in Middle School - coach thought it to be safer.

Not safer for you nuts, that's for sure.

I saw a couple guys doing that lift a year or two ago at my gym. Their form was pretty good. I might give this a shot on Saturday if I remember.

Why would your knees be shot? My trying this on Saturday depends on your answer.

the angle at which it puts your knee could cause it to cave in medially...

Im not saying don't do the lift as you are most likely going to use MUCH better form than the kid in the video (or the kids I went to Jr. High with, for that matter). It just puts your knee in a very bad position.

Watch the kids right knee towards the end of the video, it will give you a good idea of what I mean, its partially obscured by the guy walking in front of the camera...but you will get the point

ok, so if form is bad then obviously there is something wrong... but is it really that bad to do if your form is dead on?

That just looks like horrible form, I dont care if its suppose to be a Jefferson Deadlift, I would prefer doing a normal deadlift any day.

WillNoble

again, my point will remain...Im not saying its a bad lift, Ive just seen people hurt on them...and I'd be willing to bet money the kid in the video will be hurt as well, if he continues down the path he's on

Give em hell, just watch your knees
