    A stiff-legged deadlift PR today!!!---video

    I hit a PR today on the stiff-legged deadlift.

    545 lbs x 3

    Now, I DO bend my knees a bit in order to protect them and my lower back but I DO NOT use any quad drive to lift the weight.

    Oh, and that was 1 more rep than I predicted in Hatred's journal.

    I try to practice what I preach in terms of stopping short of failure. I probably could have squeeked out one more rep but I stopped myself.

    Thanks!

    Wow, nice job! Why do you walk the weight out instead of starting from the floor?

    looks more like an RDL then an SLDL to me.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Well, there is certainly an alteration in form when using 545 lbs vs. say 225 lbs. I mentioned that when I posted the video. If I don't bend those knees it places my back in a poor position.

    That said, I can pull significantly more using quad drive which would be a regular DL.

    For when you need to toss a fridge at someone...
    It turns out the answer to every question is still deadlift and eat.

    True.

    But wouldn't it be more accurate to say that those were RDLs rather than SLDLs? I dont RDLs require quad drive either.

    What? Standard deadlifts use a LOT of leg drive. That is why you can deadlift more than you can stiff.

    He means RDL, as in "Romanian Deadlifts" (basically stiff-legged/knees-bent, hips back, back straight), not "regular deadlifts".

    Ahhhh. My bad.

    I looked this up:

    "The Romanian deadlift is the exercise that Olympic lifters do to develop strong hamstrings and glutes," Gross explains. "It's just like the stiff-legged deadlift, except you keep the barbell in contact with your legs throughout the lift."

    They appear to be essentially the same movement.
