Does anyone else shake as they reach the top of their deadlift?


Is it dangerous to shake a lot and continue to pull as you near lock-out?

Your level of neural fatigue is high, for the sake of being able to train the lift frequently, terminate the set at that point, and move on.

the exercise i shake most on is leg extensions for high reps.

not much of a powerlifting exercise, but its the on i shake most on. however I do not shake on sqauts or deads, may be as the weight pulling me done makes it to hard to shake around.

How long have you been lifting Nate? If you're kinda new to the game, then don't take the shaking to be a big deal. As you keep lifting and increase your ability to create a "mind/body connection", you'll see less and less of this. As silles said, you're currently experiencing neural fatigue sooner than muscular fatigue.
