        Blaming an exercise for injury? Any exercise can have an injury. You need to think properly on your form and choice of weight.

          This was such a good podcast. I am now a fan of Robert Oberst, seems like such a nice guy and reminds me a lot of my friends from the corps. Can't wait to see how he does in WSM. Plus I fucking hate deadlifts, fuck those exercises lol.

            If you injure yourself deadlifting, then you are doing it wrong. Proper deadlift form is not difficult. And, aside from heavy squats, it is the best compound lift anyone can perform.

                        totally true about going hungry. I accepted the conventional wisdom that I needed a solid meal to do anything so I had a big breakfast just before a tennis match. I felt horrible the whole time and played the worst match ever. I played much better on an empty stomach.

                        Eat to recover, not for fuel.

                          @Blake Hornal I learned a bit late that this also applied to academics. I would eat a big meal before lecture and then I felt sleepy the whole time. If I could do college over again, I would eat after my classes.

                          captainspirou Yeah, I’ve never been able to do that either. Even if I’m not doing any cardio that day, I still feel like a slug if I eat even within a couple of hours of lifting.

                                                I've been working out since highschool and I've never attempted a deadlift because it looked very unnatural as an exercise.

                                                      Deadlift equal dumb the chance of injury is huge. You only need to drop to the knee for results never go all the way to the ground. Drain Yates never went low on deadlifts.

                                                          I would have to agree with him. As a pt I wouldn't have clients (especially beginners) doing deadlifts, even though I was always taught that deadlifts are essential to most workout programs.
                                                          There are so many great leg and back exercises out there with little risk of injury, looking for those safer alternatives would be in most peoples interests (i.e. the average gym goer who just wants to get fit or lose some weight).

                                                            Dear Joe, you are one of the coolest guys on the internet and I truly love your style, but I must say that your seemingly irrational and visceral aversion to plant-based lifestyles is quite disappointing. If you only did a bit of serious research on this topic you would understand the huge environmental and ethical implications of feeding and killing animals for food, when we can perfectly avoid doing so and lead healthy lives while protecting our decaying biosphere. Would you be willing to make a podcast as a serious debate between the most well-respected activists or researchers in the environmental aspects of leading a plant-based vs meat-based diets?

                                                                                        never liked deadlifts. I just don't like the idea of all that weight and the motion involving the lower back. I don't care if there's no risk if done properly, a mistake there and I mean once you hurt your back that shit lingers for life.

I’m not explaining position 4 because just thinking about those first three, what does that sound like? A freaking dead lift! In strong man & powerlifting technique barely matters as far as completing the lift, so when a former competitor finally realizes how horrible that is for there body (listen too Eddie Hall talk about his power lifting career) they either leave the sport completely or walk around saying dumb stuff like this. The major keys to lifting weights to stay healthy: Understand your own body, no two peoples body’s are the same so lifting patterns could be very different. Use proper technique so your body can actually keep itself in a safe position while performing the lift. And last + most important NEVER sacrifice technique for numbers, if your stick to your regimen (considering your eating well + getting good sleep) the numbers will come, patience. I could go on for days explaining why this is bs & why his examples are really just excuses to not do a very complex yet great exercise.
