Ok I just started doing deadlifts maybe 6 weeks ago or so and my best deadlift is only 225lbs X 4. Ok now my friend keeps telling me that I should stop doing deadlifts and that he won't do them ever. He says my lower back will get really wide and I won't get that "V-look". Previously I had ignored him, but today I read a post in another thread and someone was saying that deadlifts can make your lower back freakishly huge. So, my question is, is this true, and if so should I worry about it?
Btw I really enjoy deadlifts so I'd hate to drop them, it is definitely one of my favorite exercises. I enjoy them as much as I enjoy squats and bench. The feel you get doing deadlifts is unique from other lifts I think, really great rush.
Edit - Oh and when I told my friend it wasn't true, he said look at the lower back's of powerlifters, they are freakishly huge in comparison to other parts of their bodies. I have never really "looked" at powerlifters lol, I usually look at women hehe. Anyways it got me worried, should I be?
