After some chins and db rows I went to the deadlift. So this is pretty much my 3rd week doing them, and before I got up to 225x3.

Today was:

135x5
185x5
225x5
255x1
275x1

I doubt I really got stronger, I just tried more weight. I'm stoked though, now at least I know.

Man on 275 I felt like I ripped through the flesh of my knee caps and shins on the way down. Felt good tho

lol yeah..

I was watching this vid earlier and he was saying you feet should be centered under the bar. I'm kinda tall so I dunno if I should adjust, but I kept them centered.

What you are looking to achieve is to have your scapula (mid top of your spine) directly over the bar with the bar touching your shins. This should be your starting position, otherwise you will be inefficient and forced to adjust mid pull (not good). By standing with the barbell cutting your foot in half looking down, most people will achieve this. (Easier to explain as well).

They are called that because of how sore you will be the next day lol. I don't really like them, they are kind of unnecessarily "dangerous", I've heard that sentiment echoed often as well

Well they aren't for people with a weak core. Just focus when you're doing them and you'll be fkne

Yeah similar to Romanian Deadlifts in a way, both great exercises with similar risk of injury... If you lack form which I'm sure you don't. I can just imagine someone bending over the way a typical person does, but with a barbell on the back of their neck lol

Quoting this to do later.

Solly, squats or deadlifts are actually a big thing that can cause herniated discs. Weak core is another thing.
