Of course I do not mean that–I am very weak (My best deadlift type lift is a 470 stiff-leg, due to an injured hip), he is very strong, and I only used that provacative title to try and get the attention of the westside lifters at this forum. I am actually very grateful for the excellent lifting advice he gives, and I think very highly of westside in general.
I seek their attention, because a week ago I posted a question about deadlift form, and no one responded, until today. My question was whether doing olympic pulls, with one’s shoulders in front of the bar makes it harder to deadlift correctly with shoulders behind the bar. I asked, because I have a really hard time deadlifting with my shoulders behind the bar. The response I recieved indicated that maybe it is not better to deadlift with shoulders behind the bar.
Now my question for the westside lifters is why should one deadlift with shoulders behind the bar?
