The exercise you aren't doing

Post by danbinder »

Hi All -
I was at the end of a 4 week program and decided i wanted to work in some exercises that i might have neglected because the plan did not call for them. What happened was I gained further appreciation for the deadlift. It had been atleast 1 month since i last made deadlifts part of my routine and todays workout re-ignited my passion for them. there simply is no better exercise because it just works so many different muscle groups. If you have a chance, check out my blog on deadlifts today at http://distinctfitness.blogspot.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; If i was going to construct a plan for how to gain strength while leaning up and getting in overall better physical condition, i would start with the deadlift. let me know what you think.

I love deads. I actually hate them because they are so tough, but because of that I love them. Make sense?

Yes; bascially it means you're a bit sick in the head, but in a good way :wink:

if liking deadlifts is wrong, then I don't want to be right! :)

Just wish my thumb would heal up so I can do them properly :(

Do you live somewhere with very wide doors? I'm just thinking that with such an inflated sense of pride like that, you'd need them ha ha :wink:

Yes, i actually had to cut wholes in the walls at the door frames to allow my head to go through. Alas, the price of perfection!
