    75 Ways Deadlifting Just Plain Rocks | DeanSomerset.com

    I really didn't want to hijack the Ladies Who Lift thread, but I wanted to express to everyone how much I love Reason #37:
    37. Bruce Lee did deadlifts with Franco Columbu. Chuck Norris did the Total Gym with Christie Brinkley. That is why Chuck Norris is now a series of jokes, and why Bruce Lee is no joke.

    The pictures and videos are pretty awesome too.

    Ha, you're welcome to intercede jfreaksho!

    Yeah, that article was my main inspiration for deciding to start lifting. Particularly the third pic
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      lol... I love Bruce Lee and even dead lifts, but I dunno if thats the best reason. I mean Chuck is still alive, moving excellently as he ages, and got a hot woman on his arm. Just saying ...If I'm him its like "laugh at me all you like, I'm Chuck Norris bitches!"

      My favorite is #13. Do anything it takes to complete the lift! Awesome mantra.

        Is he saying not to use chalk? I know (and agree) that Rippetoe says that you should only wear lifting gloves if they match your purse, but what's more masculine and awesome than chalk?

        Whatever. The guy's on point with the other 74 reasons. Great article.

          I had to bite my lip at the gym recently when the dudes start comparing their gloves. Also, one guy that does dead lifts bounces them hard and you know what Rip says about those folks.
          If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

            Yeah, that's why I lift at home. I was thinking about the deadlift bouncers when the article said "imagine kipping deadlifts." Same difference.

              I have taken a break from deadlifting and I am trying out hacklift and Pendlayrowing instead. Hacklift is pretty much the same as a deadlift though, only with the bar behind the body, a reverse deadlift so to say. Pendlayrowing standing on a block with supinated grip is also a great allround movement so I am going to see what results those exercises brings for the next weeks...

                I don't bounce. Oh my god how could I? It's almost like I do 5 singles. I don't let go, I don't get out of position, but I have to breathe before the next one.

                I deadlifted 155lbs yesterday. Not much in absolute terms but it was a) well over my body weight, b) easier than I thought it would be (thought I would fail), and c) I felt like Wonder Woman all day after.

                    Yes. Let the weight be held by the floor, re-set your valsalva, and go. It's definitely still 1 set of 5.

                    That's legit. I'm more convinced than ever that you just need more recovery time between deadlift days. Great work. Stronger than you've ever been!

                      Deadlifts used to be my favorite. Not so much now that it's gone downhill since last summer XD

                        Deadlifts are my favorite. I always feel awesome after doing them.

                          How's the initially recovery from the hacklifts? Be interested to hear how you find the difference.

                            Deadlifts are the most awesome exercise to do in my opinion, more than squats
                            well then
