    Haha, I agree. I'm the type of person that cares more about who is right.

        Deadlifts should be one of the more simple exercises to come up with weight for. Since it is not a dynamic move the shape of the weight is less important. As long as you can grip it and lift it while maintaining form you should be good to go.

        Duffle bag full of sand or rocks
        Small (or large!) child
        A log (maybe wrap a couple straps around it to make handles)
        Your suitcase
        Water jugs
        Spare tire off the car

          thanks for all the messages, i just use a big pile of rocks for most lifts and have been doing lunges, one leg squats and one leg romanian lifts and it has been plenty

            If you lift children, only lift children you do not like, so that if you will drop them it will not be a great loss.

              Body weight deadlifts? Come on. Save up your allowance and buy some friggin' weights.

              And Barbie, lifting something on an unstable surface is just plain dumb. But, I look forward to seeing pictures at the Darwin award ceremony.

                As others have said, there is no real "substitute" for a weighted deadlift, however you can build strong, functionally fit legs with just your bodyweight. For the last few years pistol squats, shrimp squats, back bridges and yes - one legged bodyweight deadlifts - have made up the bulk of my lower body strength training and I've been pleased with the results. The key to maximizing these types of bodyweight movements is to do them slowly and with control through the whole range of motion.

                Some people prefer to lift weights and I respect that - weight training is a fantastic way to build strength - but those of us who prefer bodyweight training can still get very strong.

                  Unstable surface + barbells = pointless idiocy.
                  Unstable surface + just your bodyweight = whatever floats your boat, sure, why not. But - why, again?
                  If you don't think that strength gained from a traditional deadlift is useful on, say, a moving boat, then you haven't really weight trained. If training effects were that specific, then barbell programs would never do anyone any good. And they obviously do.
                  I've never seen a single person go from nasty to buff on a bosu-ball based program.

                  OP, maybe you can get a truck axle or a transmission at a wrecking yard and start messing with that?

                    I usually try to deadlift a fallen tree that is immovable. This is an isometric excercise

                        Do any of you lambasting Barbie actually know what the Romanian deadlift is? As she states its was from Mark Laurens "You are Your Own Gym", which is extensively only bodyweight excercises, repeat BODYWEIGHT!

                        Having actually done them whilst stood on a cushion, by a miracle of physics, I have managed to touch my toes, straighten, and live to tell the tale, and if I had of fallen off, I'm pretty sure falling off a cushion onto my living room floor, probably wouldn't have put me in intensive care, it weren't as if I was doing um stood on top of a set of fucking step ladders!

                        Also having your hands reaching down (you've heard of hands I take it) does offer some amount of safety if you do lose balance, or should I have done them wearing handcuffs?!

                        Cheers

                          The deadlift in YAYOG isn't a deadlift by any conventional standards.

                            Spot on Coach, more of a hamstring stretching/strengthening excercise, I would say.

                            Cheers

                              Agreed - still very useful of course. And I'd actually say that most deadlifting newbies should spend a reasonable portion of their time working on their hamstrings during the early stages of learning the lift. I find good mornings to be a great assistance exercise.

                                I didn't read much of this thread, but going by page 5, two things emerge:

                                1. Mark Laurens is a bum
                                2. Don't take weight lifting advice from a Barbie
