    Yeah, I hate lifting weights in the first place. I'd much rather go on a hike and actually have an experience that I can remember. Much more entertaining than sitting there doing the same thing over and over.

    He’s just saying don’t lift heavy, you can still deadlift lighter and do 6-10 reps and gain a lot of benefits from that you’ll build a stronger lower back, glutes and hamstrings but if you’re going for 1-2 reps then you better be doing it perfect otherwise you’re gonna snap ur shit up for no good reason

    It is a fact that weed has been so unfairly demonized for about a century now.. for a country that puts quite a bit of faith in scientific backing, weed has never been shown to deserve it's status, slowly the states and people are waking up to that fact... It should be treated like alcohol regulations, because people are going to do it and we might as well regulate it and accept it as an industry... It will benefit us more this way

    bro hex bars are way more dangerous for deadlifts. Just get proper form on conventional dls. When you finish a conventional deadlift the bar weight hangs in FRONT of your torso. With a hex bar its hanging on your side and could potentially go behind your torso, which would 100% give you an injury.

    Also running atleast marathon running you can watch videos and research the topic of its negative effects for example it 1.promotes cortisol and is not benefical to hormones like testosterone 2.increased chances of strain and stress on the body 3.body temperature increases 4.its apparently bad for your kidneys and heart if i remmember correctly though beneficial to the lungs last i recollect

    Robert seems pretty cool and i mean no offense but deadlifts are good for you allso i like the fact he is a rocker (back on topic)its quite beneficial like any excercises if you do it correctly and wisely like not overdoing it also they work many of the major mucle groups and it makes you stronger however you must use proper form and equipment and perhaps most importantly listen to your body and dont over work yourself also deadlifting improves your hormones and powerlifting with the big 3 deadlift especially being one of if not the saffest excercises weightlifting is certainly more dangerous/risky especially with higher weight remmember do what you can manage

    I agree. In HS 4 years ago the First time I tried to max out my deadlift I tore my lower back muscle.. luckily I didn’t slip a disc or worse... I still feel pain to this day so probably something worse happen but idk.

    I had back pain for like half a year after doing deadlifts. I was dumb and went way too heavy. Like 5x5. I think the trick is to do like 20x3 so thats pretty light weight. Just pump up your core.

    I wouldn't recommend doing dead-lifts either. And, honestly, if you're tall & lean, I'd recommend being very careful with squats too. I couldn't lift weights for almost TEN YEARS because of squatting (and it was like my ENTIRE LIFE before that.) I LITERALLY couldn't get a GALLON OF MILK from the fridge without wincing from back pain.

    Preach!!! I have legit medical need for pain meds and they steal your soul! I hate opioids with every ounce of my being but sometimes it is all I can take to walk or move. BTW, diagnosis of ATN or suicide nerve disease, progressive MS, inverse psoriatic arthritis, and more but I literally do everything I can to not take pills. They are the devil! Get people addicted, weaken their mind, soul, body, take away the substance, unarm the people and now they do not have the ability or desire to defend themselves or fight back. This is big pharma and the global elitist agenda. Basic art of war and how to control people. This makes people dependant on outside forces or others, aka the government, and then they own you leaving you open for destruction. I don't know if cannabis alone is the answer but current treatments are definitely not the way!!!

    I think Robert's remarks about deadlifts are probably towards the really heavy lifters. Just like with any training exercise you do them correctly and safely you won't get any long term issues, depending on how heavy you lift. These high tier strongmen are all drugged up and pushed beyond normal human capabilities and that's causing injuries. As a normal lifter working up to a 350-450 PB dead lift you're probably at a good, safe limit. But these guys doing 700-800-900-1000 Pound deadlifts are gonna end up with some debilitating injuries like Robert said as it's beyond normal, non drug used lifting.

    WHAT>>> literally the first part of both those movements are basically a deadlift, just lighter wieght, so just use a lighter weight....i love doing deadlifts because i like picking heavy shit off the ground..but doing hang cleans, thats a complicated movement that takes practice.

    Squatting heavy with weak spinal erectors (as might result from not deadlifting) seems to me more dangerous than deadlifting. For a lot of people, leg strength gains can outpace core and upper body strength gains, and this can be a recipe for disaster for someone who just wants to increase their squat number. I've seen a number of videos of regular gym lifters (who probably never deadlift) getting significant back rounding, bent over and basically folded in half in failed squat attempts. I don't recall seeing that in powerlifters who train in all three lifts and have generally higher deadlifts than squats, meaning that when they fail a squat, it's their legs/glutes that fail, not their backs, which remain more or less neutral. I get that he is probably addressing people who are going wild with deadlifting trying to do 500+ lbs, and I agree that the risk/reward really doesn't make since at that level, but I think to be consistent he should also mention the dangers of squats.
