Re: Deadlifts: drop or put down?
Exactly, Geoff, and that's why I started this thread. The handful of stories of deadlift injuries I've heard go like this:
"I lifted the weight with no problems, but on the way down, pop!"
Thus, I've got a real paranoia about this particular lift. I know that the best way to avoid back injury is to train my back, but I want to be as safe as possible.
