    full vs half deads

    hey i cant do full deadlifts becuase my legs are too long to do the first part of the rep so im doing half deadlifts now. first time was yesterday and i can tell they did make a good replacement. but as for overall body mass are there any studies that anyone knows about that compare the amount of that hormone that is released during such compound movements like squats that is released during half deadlifts compared to full deadlifts?

    later

    Don't worry about the extra nano gram or so you MIGHT get from doing full deads. Just do halves or quarters. I've done halves for about a year and didn't do deadlifts before that and I am growing just fine.

    I used to read this one guy's training log on cyberpump.com back when it was free. Some big scary guy named Herk that was always high on life, and he got plenty big from working partial deads.

    I prefer partials. They feel more natural to me than full deads, and I feel that for what they do, they work my back harder than full deads.

    As long as you're squatting hard on Leg day, I don't think you'll miss out on anything by doing partial deads.

    Whats important is the full range of motion, granted the legs do most of the work at the start of the lift, but the tension and work the back does in the beginning is very important. It's a given that its best to do full range of motion. I've never seen or heard of anyone doing partial deadlifts.

    Weaker and smaller from a less range of motion, it's similar to cheating.

    Injury for the fact that you have to stop the decent, and the fact you're bent over and moving without a full deadlift technique. If some young teen gets carried away and can't contrl the weight while doing partials..wallah..nice back injury.

    No, it's like a crunch vs. a full sit-up. A full deadlift involved a lot of leg effort. It's almost all back in a good range of motion when doing partials.

    Injury for the fact that you have to stop the decent,
    Ever heard of a power rack?

    the fact you're bent over and moving without a full deadlift technique.
    Who says you have to bend over to do partials? I can do them exactly like the top half of a regular dead.

    If some young teen gets carried away and can't contrl the weight while doing partials..wallah..nice back injury. [/B]
    Same thing can happen with regular deads

    Well I'm not gonna keep argueing back and forth, it's simply my opinion, unless he has some major injury I would view full deadlifts as more beneficial. What works for him works for him.

    I see NO reason a bodybuilder should be doing partial deadlifts. I think its STUPID. who cares how long your legs are.

    Ask Layne if he does half squats or partial deadlifts cuss his legs are long.

    more ROM=more fiber activation.

    Um, I would say more than when I do crunches. I do my situps on a decline, so I'd suppose thats a different story.

    Well anyway. I think that about 3/4 of your back movement comes in the last 1/3 to 1/4 of the movement in deads.

    DUH! how many abdominal muscles do you use during a crunch and how many do you use during a sit up? more muscles= more fiber activation.

    So really you activate more fibers in a clean then you do in a clean and press.


    Use your brain its very simple to see the point.

    Ok, thats great, but when I do partial deads, the only muscles I'm worried about activating are the ones in my lower back.

    Partials work the back more and improve lockout strength in the full deadlift. They are pretty good IMO. You should do SOME full deadlifts once in a while tho

    oh and ive never felt my lower back that sore the next day in my life after doing partials. it was a muscle soreness NOT an injury
