    the trick on deadlift is you have to squat down as much as you can almost below parallel before you start the lift.........just think leg press when pushing up........also keep your eyes up when moving the weight up

    I ate a sandwich today. Chicken sandwich with cheese mayo, garlic salt, pepper and some lettuce. Thats what I did today. Didnt do the leg thing. Sorry
    Maybe later though. Still an early night but a lot of good shows are on. CSI, Survivor, and something else.

    Yes, that's good advice. Drive your heels through the floor, stay super-tight, and grab the bar HARD.

    You know BigOl, for any leg advice I think I'd go straight to you, thats nuts! Your legs, your squat weight your workout, it's all nuts! I think next leg day I'm going all the way up to 20 reps for my sets!

    you dont need that kind of shock to your body yet bro......BigOle has been training for a while obviously and prolly needs that type of "shock" to get his legs to respond

    np

    usually the thing that gets people with deadlift is a weak back(im not saying that is your case) to combat this i would suggest doing romanian deadlifts,and stiff legged deadlift(all the way to the floor)

    here is a link to romain deadlift picture: http://athletics.colgate.edu/powerpe...hnique/RDL.htm

    here is a link to stiff legged deadlift http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=117

    its the best i can give ya on how to do it correctly........i promise if you do thease your deadlift will go up.........just dont do both of thease on your back day......pick one and do it for like 4 weeks the start the other one and rotate them
