After doing some reading about how to help build core muscle strength, it became obvious that the deadlift should be included in my gym session. So that is what i am currently doing. Some people claim it is one of the fundamental exercises and really helps to add mass and muscle etc. So last night in the gym I decided to give it a proper go - i had a quick go last week and got upto only 60kg and stopped there, but last night went above that. Managed to work up to 110kg in the end (8 reps) - started at 80kg, then 90kg, then 100kg before ending on 110kg. i felt ok tbh, and so far seems to be what i am doing best at. i think my form is ok, trying to keep my back as straight as possible, grip the bars tight and use one over and one under hand grip (is this correct? i have seen videos of people using one of each grip). The different grip thing felt wierd to start with, but soon got used to it. Will give it a few days rest now as I can suffer from a bad back from time to time, so don't want to cause that to come back. Not really sure where to go from there - i understasnd 110kg isn't massive by any stretch, but it is more than my bodyweight (around the 100kg mark), so pleased with that. Would like to get my squat up to bodyweight mark as well, so may work on that more. Anyone else a fan of the deadlift?
