    Good way to convince your parents to let you do deadlifts?

    Back when I was learning deads I had bruises on my shins. Now that I can do em right, they don't trust them cause of the bruises. They are like,"you'll get bone marrow cancer." In response I say ,"no I won't." Then they ask wether I actually see many people do em in the gym. Unfourtanly, I don't. My dad works out with me sometimes,but no one does em when he is there. So where is a good gym that I can show them that they are common?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Marrow cancer? Did you ask them why deadlifts causing bruising on your shins can cause marrow cancer? I really would be interested in how they explain it.

    They can't. It's one of those outrageous things people make up.

    My parents have no idea what I do in the gym. Why do you need their permission to things they're not gonna see you do?
