    Deadlifts

    Today was my first day of lifting. It was a success, but I have been reading up on deadlifts for some time and want to implement them into my chest/back day. However, I have two bad knees (offically diagnosed with bilateral patella femural syndrome in both) and because of this i have not done deadlifts yet. Do they really use your knees that much to the point where I need to worry? My favorite sport to play is basketball (played for 6 years) and I have read it helps greatly for it. Anyhow, please give me feedback as it is appreciated

    I don't even feel it in my knees - squats are a different thing altogether. Of course, I don't have bad knees, so there ya go.

    Don't ask for a lighter load. Ask for a stronger back.
