Video taken from the channel: Massive Iron Steve Shaw

Seven deadly sins, also called seven capital sins or seven cardinal sins, in Roman Catholic theology, the seven vices that spur other sins and further immoral behaviour. First enumerated by Pope Gregory I (the Great) in the 6th century and elaborated in the 13th century by St. Thomas Aquinas, they are (1) vainglory, or pride, (2) greed, or covetousness, (3) lust, or.

  • Great tips mate, especially hips forward and big toes up. I’ll try these. But I’m doing 531 so I gotta hit 95% once a month, so I’ll disregard 90%, sorry mate.

  • Good info. I only disagree with the frequency. I train for strongman and deadlifting from the floor followed a couple days later by rack pulls, farmers/frame pulls or something helped a lot. I also like to incorporate every couple weeks a huge amount of volume for romanian pulls, regular, and blocks. On another note, I’ve found it helpful to pull from the toes, midfoot and heels because it taught me the differences in muscle activation (i wasn’t doing 600lbs or anything).

  • #2spot on!! I found once I got to working with 500+ lbs on deads it benefited me to go every other week with deadlifts. Recovery from deads is the harshest out of any lift, fail on the bench or squat and you’re fine, fail on deads and you’re dead all week!!!! Great stuff, hey check out my channel at Machina Physique on YouTube if you don’t mind, let me know what you think. Thanx, keep the good material coming

  • I’m completely new to kb, got an adjustable one to use at home to substitute barbell deadlifting during COVID-19 lockdown. Two and one handed swings are awesome, these videos are a treasure for a newbie! Funnily traditional deadlifting had me doing everything right except I’ve had my toes turned out, oops.

  • Why deadlift anyway? At least guys. Why do you want a huge meaty ass and a thicker waist? Let’s get real, most people just want to be healthy and look good. Deadlift ruins esthetics and CAN SEVERELY and PERMANENTLY injure yourself. It’s NOT worth it IMO.

  • As usual Jeffo is 100 % correct, I fucked my back with poor form a couple of years ago and have been extremely cautious ever since because the pain crippled me to the point of being hospitalized.
    Big shout out from Townsville Australia cunts ��

  • As always, explanations that keep us in the gym. Took me awhile to trust these after neurological damage after a disc herniation. I’m back at the gym 100% but make sure my form is spot on with everything. Nothing worse than injuries, form FIRST

  • I just wonder whether Jeff prefers Romanian deadlifts, since his technique seems to be indistinguishable from that of the Romanian deadlift. I don’t think I’ve ever really seen him do a straight-leg deadlift.

  • I love deadlifts. Though i feel it in my back. I do it as Jeff, but i still feel it in the back vs the legs. I try everytime to push through the legs. What am i doing wrong?

  • Great I will deadlift on back day. Monday is chest tues is back and we’d is leg or should I spread them through the week? I because after I do my deadlift on Tuesday will my squat suffer the next day we’d because I didn’t fully recover from deadlift on Tuesday?

  • If you are not comfortable doing them, just dont do them without a pro teaching you the correct form. Its that simple. Just look at all of the different advice being given right here on this thread. Fuck up once, and be in a world of hurt. Potentially have a nagging injury for life.

  • Watched the video of you deadlifting attached to the article you wrote. You are over extending at the top when you lock out. No need to lay back. I feel like to give out advice on an exercise, ones personal form should be flawless. Yours is close, but not perfect.

  • Бля я тоже магу такой вес я ишо молодой 65 клаграм у меня вес я из Кыргызстана ���� меня зовут тыныбек 98 буду эх для вас этот вес пазор я так думаю вы ровно 1000 клаграм подимайт нужно был ��������

  • I am 45, have stenosis and pinched nerves in my lower back. Started going to the gym about 6 months ago. was afraid of DL’s because of my back. I finally got the balls to try it, went fine the first few reps, then SNAP! Swore i would never do them again, took 2 weeks to get back into the gym. A few days ago i try them again, went fine. Today I do them again, SNAP! It was only 160 pounds, was not even hard to do, but still took my back out. I am done with DL’s until I find someone to help me IN PERSON, to figure out what is going on. i try to follow all the Q’s, but I can not have this keep happening,

  • Thank you for the excellent videos. I just found your channel and I practice with a 16kg kettlebell. My question: when should you initiate the forward hip hinge when the kettlebell is in the downswing?

  • This was so good. Thank you!
    I have a question, though I’m not sure if this is the place for it; I want to start with the Simple & Sinister training regime by Pavel and I’m wondering if the Deadlift-before-swing is a MUST or if there are also people who can learn it without that whole buildup. Because due to the quarantine I can’t get coaching right now and I would like to finally start my kettlebell journey in a responsible manner. The simple & sinister protocol speaks to me since it’s so simple and I can just start.

    I do get the whole buildup idea of course. Normally I love breaking movements down and then building them up. But I’m also really looking forward to just starting and DOING it, finally, after watching so many youtube videos:P I’m pretty talented at understanding the movements I think. I do believe the book (simple & sinister 2nd edition) has pretty good explanations. I’m very curious about your personal opinion.

    I once learned a swimming method by building step by step and it was SO great, my technique in that stroke is still perfect, that’s why your idea of deadlift first speaks to me so much.

  • As always Kat is coaching thru the hole video, great tutoring, great video! Thanks Kat. If you got time please explain the breathing technique during snatches and jerks

  • Thank you! Spaseebo! My sins are duck feet and butt commitment. I did 200 swings with 16kgs as part of a KB workout and my lower back is a bit sad today… following you from British Columbia.

  • Whats the point of a female showing to young males one of the most iconic MALE moves of all times and a quite inappropriate move for women for many reasons as well?

  • What you recommend works………… Just like Arthur Jones in the 70/80’s…. the 5×5 malarkey that seems to have taken over at the moment, sounds great but just doesn’t work. Keep up the good work!

  • Hey Jeff, are deadlifts with a hex/trap bar just as good as deadlifts with a typical straight barbell? Can you do a video comparing the two with pros and cons? I’m on IG using the hex/trap bar for deadlifts at: gains_marathon

  • I was one of those guys who thought “nah, I’ll just do bicep curls and squats.” As I get older, I TRULY see the importance of the deadlift. It’s a great move to have in your routine. Seriously amazing. Thanks for showing me exactly how to do it.����

  • IMO Thor and Shaw’s are the most impressive based just on height. It always amazes me when I see tall ass dudes putting up real weight

  • I call them the ego lifts because it’s drilled in your fucking head to lift more each time.
    And when say your hamstrings and arse are toasted (e.g. from the “leg day”) you’d more likely keep the wieght and compensate with your form.

    I only use a wide stance and call it “a squat from the ground”.
    So if the legs can’t contract to move the weight then. nah fuk it.

    I’ll circuit with cable rows then D/L up to a MAX of 140kegs.

    It’s how i picked up furniture at work, and i am definitely a normal (80ish kegs) lean build. Far from a specimen.

  • i do my deadlifts a little different, i lift from the rack instead of the floor. I still go 2/3 down the shin, i do not like how it feels lifting from the floor. constructive criticism is appreciated, would like a response from Jeff but, he’s a busy man.

  • K im feeling like some arent capable of doing a deadlift properly, whether its physical or mental and everytime it comes up on my workout routine it kills my motivation. And i think it might be true for all exercises. I just cant do deadlifts without fewling an unsafe amout of back pressure no matter how hard i try and no matter how light the weight is

  • Deadlift is a pushing exercise as in you have to push through your legs INITIALLY….tht doesn’t mean tht you should turn it into some kind of modified squat…

  • Can anyone explain to me how the beast is the first man ever to life 500kg when Big Z lifted 525kg in 2014? Im little confused. It was 25kg more than Eddie’s life������

  • I’m really confused. I always primarily use my hamstrings and glutes to pull the weight. Should I be engaging my quads more and pushing?

  • Okay, 8 need to point something out. Ronnie didn’t deadlift 900 pounds but 800. Its still insane and he is top 3 greatest bodybuilders no question but it was 800 not 900

  • His deadlift looked slightly different than the starting strength deadlift. Dr Austin Baraki were doing dead lifts were you were less upright. Allan Thrall had them on his channel Untamed Strength.

  • Just found this 2 days after a pretty bad low back injury while deadlifting. Never thought of it as a push instead of a pull. Wish I’d have watched a few days ago!

  • I pull every two weeks and squat and bench once a week. One set to failure as many as I can in one minute. I’m 77. Recovery is everything.

  • should I deadlift with two herniated discs??? I have back pain every day but I can live a kind of a normal life. so the pain and problems aren’t enough to have a surgery.

  • I always thought deadlift is the best exercise if done correctly, and the worst exercise if done wrong. its the exercise that involves almost all our muscles.

  • Hey man, I did get bulging discs, and I know it is because of bad form. My butt winks in the bottom of squats and deadlifts, I can’t keep my pelvis in the right movement. I guess I should just focus on getting the flexibility and mobility in my hips before I get to deadlifting again, yeah?

  • Why is showing us a tutorial of deadlifting with 95lbs. Every good deadlifter knows that no matter what or no matter how strong u are u always start with 135

  • Even though Thor did 501 kg i think you’re best of the best when it comes to deadlifting… Btw Thor deadlift shouldn’t be a world record because there were not judges and that was not a real competition (like Arnold classic etc)

  • Steve I have follow up question. I know your not a huge fan of one rep max too often but I do it on DL once a year for my birthday which is on October. Currently I don’t DL I do power shrugs and rack pulls. How should I set up workout and rep schemes to accomplish this goal. Last year I did 500 if I can get close to that I am good. Currently I am doing your Bulldozer work out.

  • Thank you for this. I’ve been rotating between conventional, sumo and trap bar deadlifts. Should I just pick one or is rotating through them acceptable?

  • This is the wrong form of the deadlift. Not everyone can squat the bar up. The deadlift is a posterior chain exercise. It is not a pushing one. Yes, the quads are going to be used to push the ground through the feet, but the deadlift is a pulling exercise as well as a pushing exercise before the bar passes the knees. Once the bar passes the knees, it’s a hip movement.

    Either way, the way Jeff is showing the deadlift here is not possible for many people, that is, people with shorter arms and longer legs (bad deadlifting proportions). If you want to squat the weight up, then squat.

  • Good advice, but how can avoid passing out from doing this move since I usually like to lift heavy weights? It’s never happened to me at this point, but I’ve seen cats passing out in youtube,com from doing these in the past and I don’t want it to happen to myself.

  • Even though I don’t have the education you have I feel that deadlifts have too much risk per reward. I greatly prefer trap bar deadlifts, and Jefferson dead lifts, and weighted hyper extensions to target the lower back. Dead lifts are a good exercise but there is too much risk.

  • This is probably the best and most important video I have ever seen on the subject of fitness. It’s so important, the advice that he gave us here. I have never ever thought of this exercise as of pushing exercise. Thank you so much, I will try this! I am 6‘5“ tall, 53 years old, lean and somewhat fit, and I have scoliosis, so my dead lift has gone way down over the years.

  • I’m not an expert, which is why I’m watching these videos, why is 525kg less impressive than 500kg just because they’re tyres? Surely big z holds the record weight is weight right?

  • You have to love Eddie for including Thor’s lighter lift at the Arnold, while still giving him a proper piss off to his 501kg that didn’t count.

  • Great job bro. What would be awesome to is if you demonstrated the sins as well with light weight and explained them as you go through the list. Keep up the great advice.

  • Nope, sorry, during years of lifting, I always got pain in the lower back doing deadlifts. Everyone said it’s the best all round exercise you can do, it’s poor form. I watched thousands of videos, talked to dozens of training partners/coaches, tried lots of tips and always made sure I was spotted doing the lifts. I still got back pain no matter what. I know lots of people who say the same thing, I’m sure a lot of people’s problem is indeed poor form, but there are others like myself who just don’t get any benefit from an exercise that leaves us in pain. Iron graveyard for me and so it shall remain. If you can do it and get benefit from it, great, if it always makes you uncomfortable or in pain, don’t do it!! and don’t let “experts” bully you into doing it. ( Not including this brilliant video, by the way, this just explains correct form brilliantly, I mean Johnny “ I’ve always done them and so will you!!”.

  • my back keep straights when im doing deadlift, but after a set, i can feel my lower back, is it because im doing it wrong? or just because im a beginner

  • I joined a crossfit gym a year ago. I’d never heard of the deadlift before. It’s a tough one to get used to there is no doubt about it. It took me months to learn how to do it right. At the beginning of every lift I always felt like I was gonna snap my back. All about the set up and totally agree here it’s a pushing exercise. When you do it right you KNOW IT. If you do it wrong you also know it unfortunately

  • I’m gonna make this comment bc alot of people deal with it but dont speak on it. Deadlifts has helped me with heroin addiction and depression, so when I see this guy talk about deads I cant help but to get emotional like I said maybe I’m wrong for talking on things I’ve been through but I know itll help others. So get in the gym and get your form right.

  • Wait I am confused? If the the record for the first man to lift 500kg, wasn’t that already broken by big z then? Since he lifted more kg? He even did it in 2014 while Eddie did his in 16

  • With core front and back activated, this exercise strengthens your lower back, you can tell if an injury is going to happen, it doesnt just happen. Done right, it makes me stand so much stronger and just feel very alive n unstoppable!

  • Steve, how do you deal with low grip strength? My DL, lat pulldown, rows, etc are hindered by my forearms pumping out and losing grip…. Any recommendations?

  • When I train back-I have more back muscle soreness even I. The upper back / lats if I do deadlifts compared to not inclideong deadlifts
    I especially like doing at end of back workout light just 225-275 for reps

  • One of my worst injuries was a pulled glute that took about a year to really heal from doing deadlifts. I think my form was decent, but I was not stretching and warming up beforehand and I’m 46 years old. Make sure you warm up well before any lifting!

  • Hi Steve! Do the same “rules” apply to the trap bar deadlift? I’m considering buying a trap bar, due to a more or less chronic back injury which prevents me from doing a regular deadlift.

  • Do you feel that ”pushing into the floor” is also a good cue instead of trying to ”pull” (or ”standing up” like you mentioned)? Thanks for another solid video

  • So crossfit… Explained everything except the most important…. Dead lift rule number 1 hips/but goes backwards unlike in squat they goes down.

  • Ms. Steve

    Is direct abs workout necessary since i’m not a fan of six pack abs and never wanted to get them!

    I do compound lifts with some of assistant workouts twice a week.


  • great video and the deadlift is my FAVORITE! I actually take my shoes off so I can really feel the weight on my heels as I push to do the movement. men should really study the deadlift more because the benefits are so rewarding on so many levels. MEN, MAN UP AND DEADLIFT ��

  • I fractured a vertebrae when I started lifting again doing them improperly, now I’m scared to even try it, I can bent over row like a beast but ��, this video struck sheer horror into the very soul of my being

  • Mark Rippetoe says its a pull exercise and not to push with your heels. This guy says the opposite? Why can’t these all these popular fitness guys all get together at some conference and sort this stuff out.

  • i really like your videos its very informative and you really know how to teach people or deliver infos that are easy to follow. Thank you! ��

  • are the tires lighter or something? why does it says 1100+ lbs on brian shaw and Big Z deadlift? isnt that more than 500KG already?

  • I’m actually confused whether to add this to back/biceps day or legs shoulders day. Should I change it altogether and train back and legs on the same day?

  • I did heavy deadlifts with a gym partner 1-2 days per week for 2 years and before we started working out together he had lower back issues he was dealing with and he was seeing a physical therapist who cautioned him about attempting deadlifts(he had never done them before this point). We learned how to do them properly-constantly monitoring and adjusting each others form until it was perfect-and it never caused issues for his back, in fact, his lower back got a lot stronger without any issues and he had less back problems after doing heavy deadlifts for 2 years than he did before he started lifting weights. I don’t doubt that his physical therapy played a part in his recovery but one thing is for sure deadlifts never ruined his back.

  • According to this video every competitive cross fitter is doing the deadlift wrong. They all drop the weight after they lock out. Setting the weight down is part of the deadlift

  • thumbs up XD ty for making me understand that i was n t stronger i was actually doing out off instinct after many failure s,a correct push and keeping my back straight i didn t do deadlifts until now since from what i could tell you need a belt and have a clean slate with you r apendix,well since at work with correct form i can actually work all day {until hungry } with a correct form i will give it a try after this comment plus i only have weight around 40 kg so it s small start but good for reps off stand ups around 50 or 40 {lol,like i said i never did so i am expecting to not be that energy taxing b cuz off my daily routine at farm }

  • The problem with deadlift is when people do it to total muscle failure. Especially in the beginning, with some muscle imbalance. Give yourself time to adapt and start light weight.

  • Oh i see, so Eddie will be the one who will stop the fight of Godzilla and King kong. There will be a new movie of Godzilla. Wherein the hydra looking bastard will recover. And Godzilla and King kong will be fighting.
