    yea that was my point, different amounts could mean nothing in comparison with each other :) Kam, could be right although im sure different machines cant be measured against each other.

    Lol taxi :D

    i always seem to be doing deadlifts when im tired / aching so i can never go heavy... or maybe im just no good at them haha

    yep thats my problem, my default mode is eating a shitload and drinking lots of beer.. ive cut out about 80% of the alchohol i drank, and like you now have vodka tonic, or gin & tonic if i do. Makes a massive difference but every so often i have to binge on beer or ill go mad :D

    Taxi do you do daedlifts on a smiths machine? i find that really orchward, as the bar can only go up dead straight, puts lots of stress on my lower back compared to doing it with a free bar

    As above, ass to grass squats and my legs as far back as they'll go on leg press. You can properly see my bollocks :wack:
    Deadlift is floor to lock out, bench press I do proper 2/3 range, no tricep lockout shit.

    No smith machine.

    I'll get some vids of squats :)

    Have Amino acids with protein and also a little glucose, and get that cheat day down to one a week and thet will make it all easier, also as the fat starts to drop off its a good chance to see lagging bodyparts and concentrate on them.

    Start with the bar raised? Wide stance?

    Yeh normally on the smiths. Doesn't matter I find it helps me from swaying. As I say my back is relatively weak so it lets me focus on jut my back.

    Do everything free dude, I bet that's why your back is lagging.

    Nah! Straight from the floor, shoulders back, shoulder width grip and just lift straight. Keep your head up and your chest outs make sure when you bring it up to the top pause and squeeze.

    NEVER use wrist straps doing dead lifts! Graham was telling me about a guy he watched in a previous gym pulling both shoulders out I their sockets hen his grip gave way! Apparently until that point he'd never seen a 17stone man cry unable to wipe his own tears!

    I do occasionally use the Olympic bar if the smiths is being used and the gym is busy, I don't find it makes much difference

    ^that's just a normal deadlift. It'll engage my legs loads.
    Nothing wrong with using straps either, that guy must have had some shoulder issues!!!

    I only use straps for shrugs...

    Dead lifts with the over/underhand tekkers tends to work for me. Although i'm not deading a massive amount.

    I dont use straps at all, just chalk. I was always worried about losing grip strengh. And now have th grip strength for any weight I want to do. chalk makes a big difference though.

    I use padded RDX things that aren't so much grips, just stop your hands getting torn up.
    They do help though, my grip is shit it goes way before my back.

    Deadlifts and Squats are the best.
    Start with the bar raised? Just lower the weight and get the technique spot on.

    Haha I thought Joe Burrows would have Given you the tekkers.

    Its good to hear other people who like drifting are into getting stronger.




    ^^^ The technique is flawless.

    Everyone is missing my point.

    I know how to deadlift. I know how to squat.
    I want to deadlift, without enganging my legs as much.

    If that's possible, sweet. If not, stop telling me how to deadlift or to do squats?!

    *And if i remember that video correctly she doesn't even do deadlift or squats.

    Raise the bar up on blocks.

    Eliminates leg movement. See alot of people doing it in the gym, but never done it myself so can comment on effectiveness.
