    being a decent deadlifter myself, and watching lots of powerlifters deadlift in the past, i can say that it is the lift with the most variation between different people without a doubt. That said, christophers' post in the other thread is basically the only thing you need to worry about, make sure your lower back is arched and you keep your shoulders behind the bar, other than that it's sort of an individual and comfort thing.

    cliff notes: Grip it and rip it ;).

    i got to 24 hours and well, theres not much floor space. All the videos of deadlifts i see are just done in the middle of the floor. Theres a rack there that looks like this:

    Code:
    |-----\
    |------\
    |-------\-
    |________\_______
    |               |
    
    
    on the top is a bar of course, and theres a notch on the bottom like any rack has thats just about perfect for deadlifting. I NEVER see anyone use this thing, and the first time i did deadlifts, i used this platform since its the only bar i never see people using. While ive never gotten any wierd looks that i know of, im always wondering if im being a douche by using this thing thats supposed to be for something else :rofl: So is it cool to continue using it or should i make some room on the rubber floor?

    Our small 24hrs Fitness weights room only has one of those racks and a full cage, so I use the rack when the cage is occupied (rarely). I do use the rack for SLDL's. Doing regular deads, just drop the bar on the lower shelf when you finish your last rep.

    If you can squat right, you can do a deadlift; it's like squatting with the bar hanging from you. A lot of ass, quads and back in it.

    your shins should be vertical in the starting position, not pointing forward (like his are in that animation)
