    s l deadlifts

    does anyone have any tips on keeping the back straight during straight leg deadlifts. I can't seem to go low enough for the weight to touch the floor without my back bending

    You don't have to go that low.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I was just gonna post that...

    Noah just do a comfortable range of motion and above all make sure your form is correct...you can load the bar pretty heavy on this exercise and if you go too far on a heavy set you could injure yourself (I have already)...make sure your muscles are warm and don't stretch them beyond their limit.
