Thanks Steve. I know you are a knowledgeable fella, so what is your personal opinion on the loosening deadlift for someone with no 'major' back issues?

I'm aware of the 2 general schools of thought, but I'm trying to decide if it's a good idea to do them again or not worth the bother for an everyday Joe. I wondered if many people had tried them.

If I recall correctly Pavel suggests 2/3x8-12, is there any value in going higher reps say 15-20 or is that likely to increase injury risk? I don't think I'd fancy going lower rep.
