could someone enlighten me on the different types of dead lifts and how to do them?
also what is a hack squat? or rack pulls?
sorry for all the stupid questions...but when i search i just get a bunch of abbreviations that don't mean anything to me.
one more thing, my back squat is relatively weak compared to my dead lift, as in, i can do 305 x5 and its the same intensity as 255 x5.. and i do all my lifts without belts or anything. and i have a feeling that its my lower back holding me back because it feels like my lower back is under alot of stress. i know i have the squat technique down correctly too...
i used to be able to squat way more but i used a belt so it was way different.
thanks guys..and girls.

Conventional Deadlift: Bend over and pick up the bar. Arch your lower back, round your upper back.
Sumo Deadlift: Same as Conventional, but use a wide stance.
Romanian Deadlift: A deadlift from just below the knees to standing up.
Dimel Deadlift: Same as Romanian deadlift, only done for speed at high reps.
Stiff Legged/Straight Legged Deadlift: A deadlift with no bend, or a slight bend in the knees.
Trap bar deadlift: Deadlift with a trap bar (hex shaped bar you stand in the middle of).
Hack Squat: Similar to a deadlift. Start with the bar behind your legs bend down and stand up with it.
Rack pull: Deadlift from a rack, with the bar resting on the safety pins, reducing the distance of the pull.
