Opinions on Deadlifts
« on: March 12, 2013, 03:56:58 pm »
I have always liked what deadlifts have done for my speed in sprinting and how it reduces GCT in both two foot and single leg vertical jump for me but I find that deadlifting is just very hard for me to recover from. So my normal pattern when doing deadlifts is deadlift 2-3 weeks see pretty good gains but then see performance  reductions and stop. When you guys do deadlifts do you notice that you can recover from them? That they are effective training tool in your toolbox? Is the large tax on your CNS and body worth the potential gains?

It's a good question. Would like to see some answers too. If I may ask a related question myself - those who don't deadlift, what WAS your best deadlift? I am wondering if someone like KF once deadlifted a decent amount then transitioned onto a mainly squats regime would find the strength and muscle he build using the deadlift 'hangs around' because that strength and muscle is used in heavy squats too. But i've also heard the saying 'train the deadlift and maintain the squat' which seems to say the opposite.
