Just wondering what is the standard Deadlift the Barbell Deadlift or the Straight Leg Deadlift.
I here of people also talking of SLDL are they talking about stiff or straight legged?
Barbell Straight Leg Deadlift
Barbell Stiff Leg Deadlift
If anyone can help me out that would be great cheers.
Barbell Deadlift is the "standard" or whatever you want to call it. Straight leg and Stiff leg meanthe same thing, same excersize. Both excersizes focus on different muscles, hope this helps.

Straight leg and stiff leg do not mean the same thing.

Those look a lot less painful than SLDL's. Maybe I'll try those instead.Originally Posted by Built

Dont you just go down another foot on sldl? How much of a difference could it make?
For those of us who can't touch our toes, SLDLs are brutal. I haven't tried them, but I could see romanians being a lot better.Originally Posted by Turnip
The only difference between all of those is in the range of motion and in how much your knees bend for each. Changing those things just changes how much emphasis is placed on the lower back, hamstrings, hip flexors, and glutes.
Sorry to hijack thread...
I was thinking. Are all deadlift variations acceptable in PL contests?
Im ean I dont know why people would do SLDL's instead of Conventional but who knows?
