    I find myself moderately-heavily winded after a set of 10 deadlifts. Is this normal or am i breathing incorrectly?

    There is something wrong to this? :eek3:

    I've been doing sets of ten eversince I've been DLing, but I pyramid my way down as the weight increases. I'm not a PLer, and I do it to tone my legs and gain endurance. Is there something wrong to that tho?

    In my personal exeprience form begins to break down on deads around 5 reps and shitty form leads to an increased risk of injury. I have done deads for 10+ reps before but not veyr often.

    I'd say keep the reps in the 5-6 range. Occasionally you get that urge to just keep cranking but its not really a high rep movement IMO

    .

    For me it goes lunges > squats > deads.

    Most of the time with lunges I feel like I am going to have a heart attack as well. :rofl:

    Tips for better form when DL'ing.
    1. Lower reps so form doesn't suffer

    But what else do you guys focus on to keep form on point?
    Look to the ceiling? (seems like i see lots of good squatters using this technique, work for deads?)

    Or anything else you guys got. I know what kinda form i should have, and it feels like i'm using it, but then my buddy will be like, sucky form.

    ass down, chest up, eyes to the ceiling, drive through the heels are my personal cues.

    and make sure your buddy knows what a good deadlift form is also *shrug*

    normal.
    I usually do 5 sets of 5 reps, double overhand until I can't grip for 1 rep, then use a mix grip for the rest.
    also try deadlifting in your socks.

    why do you do dbl overhand instead of just using either dbl overhand or mixed grip for everything?

    No, your neck should not be in extension, it should be neutral with the rest of your spine.

    i do what is heavy to me now and it's not clear to me...so instead of responding without an answer how about you give me one? what are the benefits of using double overhand for lower weight versus mixed grip for higher instead of just mixed grip for all sets?

    The real answer is some people say that after using a mixed grip for too long you'll develop a different set of muscles on either side, thus making you imbalanced (looks) and possible twisting while pulling upwards.

    For me, however, I've always done mixed grip past 500lbs and there is no twisting and my body has developed just fine.
