I’ve read all kinds of garbage recently that deadlifts are “bad for your back”.
Well…let me tell you a little story.
Three months ago I had a doctor tell me that I had probably herniated a disk.
I had lower back pain from doing heavy standing military presses.
This doctor told me to stop lifting weights. What did i do? I began an intensive deadlift routine and whala! 3 months later the same doctor has given me an all clear signal.
What does this lead me to believe…
- doctors don’t know shit from shinola
- deadlifts are good for strengthening your back.
- doctors don’t know shit from shinola.
Conclusion…deadlifts are our best friend and doing them right gives total body strength.
Finally…I will never stop deadlifting.
