I never looked seriously at this aspect of training but today...
I would like opinions about the Deadlift because it's certainly the more dangerous exercise (even if it's the most effective)
I know DEADLIFT is the KING ! I love dead but I also think Deadlift are very dangerous ! I'm in my 20s and I'm sure I'll regret heavy deadlift (150-200kg) if I have pain my whole life because of it !
I'm more oriented toward bodybuilding and I think we can build big traps/harmstrings/lower back without heavy deadlift (conventional, sumo or stiff legged)
For Traps : Shrugs
For Harmstring and lower back : Leg Curl and Hyper Extensions
OR STRAIGHT legged deadlift as suggest by Dr.Ken and Arthur Jones (two specialists of the lower back and spinal erector)
Guys I'm afraid to do the Straight Legged Deadlift, I did it yesterday (15cm from the floor) 20x71kg (easy) but so many guys told me I would kill my back.... I'm a fan of Arthur Jones but it won't protect my back
your OPINION ?
