    Here is a question for you. Which is worse for your back. Doing say a 200lb deadlift with a barbell (with proper form), or bending over and touching your toes. And why?

    Got this question asked of me, and I didn't know the answer. I figured someone on here would be able to. Ceaze, noq etc...

    I would say the correct response is to slap the person in the face who asked the question

    it doesn't sound like either are "bad" for your back :dunno: if you have good form you shouldn't hurt your back on the deadlift, and touching your toes is easy as hell.... :dunno:
