I'm currently getting increasingly concerned about deadlifting. It is by far the best exercise for the human body I believe. In terms of muscle growth, it's awesome.
However, as my weights keep increasing I keep worrying that one day I'm going to seriously damage my back, with a herniated or slipped disc, or something similar. Doing something like this would be catastrophic to ones lifting career and life in general.
My best so far is 405x3. I know there are lots of people doing much more. I try to keep my back as flat as possible, with no rounding.
Anyone have any reccomendations about how to deadlift the safest possible?
