kinda off topic but i'm trying to get into oly lifts like power cleans and snatches should i be doing these lifts on the same days i'm deadlifting? I'm pretty good at deadlifting and i think i def have the strength to do those other lifts pretty well i'm just sure how to time them in my routine

It's called the deadlift, because the weights start and you end in a "dead" position.

No other exercise works your glutes and hamstrings like the deadlift.

Moot point though because 95% of retards just lift with their back anyway.

To develope strength would be the most obvious point. You will never be strong unless you work up serious numbers in some form of squat and deadlift.

It also builds mass, though not very well since it´s eccentric portion is generally hard to control and fast as fuck for most. Stiff-legged deads or deficit deads with focus on the eccentric portion would be a better choice for mass.

However, building your strength also allows you to use heavier weights and cause greater hyperthrophy. Since the deadlift developes strength in your entire posterior chain, core, forearms, traps and even delts, just increasing your deadlift will allow you to go heavier on a lot of excercises.

If you can't deadlift at least 3plaet then you have no business even going for hyperthrophy yet. No amount of 1plaet rows or unweighted pullups will ever make you big. If you´re happy being a 160 lbs twink with abs and a vein or two on your 14 inch arms then you might not need them tho.

Aiming for anything else then do your strengthwork.

its a powerlifting movement, that being said if you're not a powerlifter and you care about not having an arthritic lower back a few years down the line, dont do them its not worth it even with perfect form

@Sharpcharm
I can yeah, but I currently see not much reason to do it. I mostly do rows and power cleans, and RDL/leg curls for hams, conventional deads are a bit too taxing for my current programming.

I think they should be reserved for powerlifters that do them with proper form/warmup

I have a friend who constantly tells me he does deadlifts on back day, as it works your lower back. I politely tell him I do deadlifts on leg days because it works mostly your hamstrings and glutes. He doesn't get the hint. Oh well, I guess I'll bring him flowers when he goes to snap city.

@BinaryMan
Where the fuck do you think the force travels if not through his back? The only difference is that the force is at roughly 20 degree angle, which means over 90% of the weight is still pulling his shoulders vertically.

The lever arm, however, is greatly shortened and allows for more weight. Basically, this excercise allows you to fuck up your shit even more than a regular deadlift ever could.

Looking like what? Some twink dyel that doesn't lift? It's not only not heavy, but he also looks like shit.

Stick with the program, cut down the road. He has probably been lifting for 2 years with minimal gains while you can lift the same in 6 months by sticking to the fucking program.

No, no. He means it's working exclusively his lower back. Deadlifts should be primarily be driven by your legs. If you think otherwise, you are doing the lift incorrectly.

I get that, but I wouldn't call deadlifts a lower back exercise. It is, if you are bending over and have poor form. Deadlifts are something like 70% leg driven, and if you can't distinguish that, your form sucks.

You are 100 percent correct. The reason that retard thinks he's getting a back workout is because he has no idea how to use his hamstrings and keep his back flat.
