    Different types of deadlifts.

    I was just reading getfit's journal and saw he does stiff leg deadlifts.
    I've also heard some other deadlift names.

    Can anyone tell me what variations they are and possibly what the pro's and con's of each one are?

    My knee's giving me hassle at the moment so if there's any way to do deadlifts without having to bend my knees that'd be brilliant for a little while til I can see a doctor.

    Different variations change the load on different muscles. SLDL's really target the hams and take most, if not all the quad out of the equation where as a standard dead you hit the hams, gluets, and quads.

    Re: Different types of deadlifts.

    Yeah like Quick mentioned the different variations just hit different areas. SLDL is probably my favorite hamstring/low back exercise I don't go very heavy but it's an extremely effective exercise. Regular deads hit more where the SLDL is more of an isolation move relatively speaking.
    I always keep a slight bend in my knees while doing SLDL.

    Yeah Quick, I was thinking the same thing but maybe they are 35's with some dimes so he can descend further.

    Try Sumo deads. They still use the same muscles as regular deads but take some of the stress off the back and use more of the legs.

    Re: Different types of deadlifts.

    I have been doing research on the internet on the sumo and regular deadlifts, and I have decided that for me, the sumo DL fits my body better. Yes, regular deadlifts do target the back more than the sumo, however, the target muscle for sumo dl's is still the Erector Spinae. The sumo DL uses more leg muscles than the regular DL but there is less ROM with the sumo, and from personal experience with how my body reacts to both exercises, the sumo is best for me. I also found on the internet that the Sumo DL can be better for taller people. Therefore, I will be replacing the regular DL in my workout with the Sumo DL.
