Re: Deadlifts: drop or put down?

I'm betting that people hurt themselves more lowering the bar because they aren't focusing on proper form as much as they do when raising the bar. You won't be able to lift a decent weight without proper form. Once you've lifted the weight, its not hard to imagine people thinking the hard work is over, lowering the bar is much easier than raising the bar, the form deteriorates a bit and....boom... a wrenched back.
