Need advice on deadlifting...

Ok guys, I need some advice. How much do you think a 15 year old who is 5 foot 1 inch and 95 lbs should be deadlifting, I am in ok shape and have been working out a little latley ( I slowed down for a while to gain weight)
Ill post my actual weight I can deadlift after a few posts.
By the way I am doing this to see if I need to work way harder to catch up to what I should be doing.

teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight." - Psalm 144:1

When I was 15 all I cared about was climbing trees and doing jumps on my bike. Don't kill yourself lifting like a man. You are, after all, a kid.

15 is way to yound to start training with weights, you will also stunt your growth, just be really active and do some work with dumbells every now and then.

Lifting with correct form will never "stunt" your growth! Google it

Wow, where did you learn that, whos growth has it stunted that started at a young age? Shaq... no, Arnold Schwartenegar...no, and Im already short. Also alot of the 15 year olds at my school have started at like 13 and are buff bigtime. In fighting condition besides the real training no doubt. Just I need opinions on how much you think I should, at my stats, be able to deadlift, its as simple as that.

I suggest making your goal be to DL twice your bodyweight. Also, when deadlifting, put on a weight you can do 10-12 times, do one set of 10-12, then add more weight and do less reps until you get to the point where u can only do 1-2. If you continue doing this you'll notice advances in your deadlift after a couple weeks even




What a stud

It depends on your arm length really.

Because, if you ever compete in Power Lifting competitions, judges won't give you the "down" signal until your shoulders are locked out all the way up on top.

For me, since I have long arms (by my standards), you might wanna try a Sumo Deadlifting position. You know, where your feet are spread far enough apart, so they're only about 1/2 a foot inside (where your shin meets) the end of your loaded bar.

Once you begin your descent down to grab the bar, make sure to look at the ceiling AT ALL COSTS!, and keep your shoulders BACK! They should never overlap past where your bar is lying before you set up the grip. This will not only help preserve your back strength, but it won't compromise your lifting posture, and most of all, it will prevent an injury (once you get into the HEAVY weight area.)

The standard over / under grip...you know how that's utilized correct? Hopefully...

You know, it would be A LOT easier for me to help you out if you could just get someone to snap a quick shot of your full body standing with the bar down on the floor, and you standing there arms down. I could better help gauge your stance and grip options.

Just a thought...
