Makes me want to deadlift. Found his comments on voume to be right on. I love to deadlift and would do it 5 days a week but for the fact my squat goes tits up when I focus too much on DL. It is my totally unstudied opinion that until you are pretty advanced, deadlifts and heavy pulls are going to be more effective than focusing on supplementary exercises like GHR etc. and infrequent deadlifting. That said, I am a narrow stance squater and don't see a lot of carryover from my squat to DL so what do I know.

The strap thing was interesting.

When he says kettelebell swings I can only assume he means the Amurican swing and not the totally innefective Russian swing... (Kidding.)

I too found the Shaf write up to be more informative in the overall. That said, who cares? the world needs more articles on deadlifting, lot's more.

I've been running around my warehouse the last couple of weeks with a hex trap (shrug) bar. Next GetUp, I explain a simple workout that involves deads and carries together.

It has really helped my grip, so I've stopped using straps for SGDLs. What ever I back squat, I follow up with SGDL's at the same weight. So back to the deadlift, after a hard workout with the trap bar and back squats, I pulled an easy 345# dead. I didn't have time or the desire to go higher, but my official PR is 360. In the fall, I worked hard on rack pulls from the knee, maxing out at 575. I know I'm a lot stronger now. Doing farmer's walks with about 325 on the trap bar is paying off fast.
