  • Slow negatives and RP on straight leg deadlifts?

    Just a quick question, I don't think I've seen it directly addressed, although I have a lot more reading to do, but so we slow negative and rp sldl's? I was doing them today, and thought it would be similar to regular deadlifts and bent rows. It's very hard to go slow, so I tried to keep the movement controlled and rest paused them 10, 6, 4 (underestimated the weight, I'll bump it up next time). Am I corrrect in doing this?

    Funny story too, we have one of those leg press sleds (the kind you lay down on and press) so I was going to do that for quads. So I did a light warmup set, then threw the pin at 210. I figured I was doing 5x5's with 275, so 210 should be ok. I couldn't budge the damned thing, so I dropped it to 190 and did a hard set of 4, then had to drop it to 90 for my set of 20. I felt like such a pussy using 90lbs, but I then realized that I'm pushing my bodyweight too since I'm laying down on the sled.

    Em i dunno if its just me but i wouldnt rest pause sldl's. cause honestly as heavy as i go for me, i dont want to drop it an try pick it up again, rather get a straight set of 12-15 and fall on the floor crying like a baby.

          I'd skip the heavier set...take the reps a little higher.....DAnte has a very specific way of doing these but I haven't seen it posted before so I cannot post it..I just do a set of 12-15.....straight set,,,but thats me

                Yeah but I thought Dante made it clear that he wasn't opposed to people changing the rep scheme either? I would do the 4-6 set, then the 8-10 and maybe get crazy with a suicide set.

                  Ok, so deadlift until I can't lift the bar any more, when I'm in the bent over position?

                    SLDL's are a tough exercise....Not one that would personally go to ABSOLUTE failure on (to the point that you can't even move the bar)...The potential for injury is just too great IMO....

                      Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm sure FH will ) but I recall that DC recommended that SLDL should be done as the last exercise in the workout when it is done.

                            Really? is it possible to do SLDL after 2 killer sets of squats???

                              NEVER do SLDL & Squats in the same workout.
                              Maybe do Leg Curls & Squats one day, then Leg Press & SLDL another day.
                              That way you can do the major compound lifts more justice & save your lower back from injury.
