I know the guys Diane times were impressive and I'm not trying to knock him, but there is no way he could have pulled off that kind of time if he were actually "dead"lifting. Touch and go, and especially bouncing the bar is not a deadlift. To qualify as a deadlift the weight must become fully deweighted on the floor before it is pulled again. This is the correct (and only way) to perform them, and it is much more taxing on the body

Tell that to the wrestler before he lifts his opponent off the floor and slams him.

The 'touch and go' part of Diane has been brought up before.

IMO if you are deadlifting for to train to lift max weight (as in powerlifting)the weight should be 'dead'.

In this case we are trying to maximize total power output (not really improve our max deadlift). Force / time = power. I think the 'touch and go' style applies well enough here.


If you can do it better, post a vid of you doing them from a 'dead' position, and challenge others to try it. See if everyone agrees that it is a 'better' way.

Touch and go may be tolerable, but dropping the weight from the top isn't ok for deadlifting. Full rep=up and down. Dropped weight = no rep.

Anthony, wrestlers aren't doing repetitions of deadlifts; they're wrestling! That's like saying you don't have to squat for full cleans because that's not how you pick up the big bag of kitty litter.

Kitty litter picking and wrestling aren't performing a specific workout with a specific exercise which has specific performance rules.

IMO, the deadlift is just a movement pattern. We train it in the gym to prepare our bodies for things that happen outside of the gym. Lifting groceries from the ground is a deadlift. Picking up kids or pets is a deadlift. Picking a wrestler off the mat is a deadlift. The weight doesn't have to be perfectly still or balanced to mimick the same movement pattern as what we train in the gym (which is what my original post was refering to) ... otherwise our training would be pointless and we all know that isn't the case.

Having said that, I fully agree that dropping the weight and catching it on the bounce isn't really lifting anything.

Just don't drop your kids or pets--I don't think they'd appreciate it.

I suppose this is as good a place as any:

I've heard the definition of Power used incorrectly too many times at Crossfit, and it's time to set the record straight. If you are not ACTING on the bar/kettlebell/whatever, you're not doing work or generating power, regardless of the ROM.

If you're dropping the barbell, you're not doing work. If you're catching it at the top of the bounce, you're not doing work. If you're letting the KB swing, you're not doing work.

Power = (force * displacement)/time. Displacement without force means ZERO power!!!

Wheew. I feel better.

Best,

Jon
