    They were all big on deadlifts, using the conventional style.

    Yep, a number of UFC fighters have been converts to Deadlifts for yonks. I think most Rugby League players Squat too.

    Yeah. They were decent squatters too.

    Ive seen league players squat. Half squats. But intentional half squats. I didnt see them full squatting.

    The deadlift is probably a good exercise for a multitude of sports.

    I suspect Spartacus has just created this controversial thread (in the PL section) so it would continually get bumped to promote his PT business.

    Self promotion is no promotion

    now i dont want to upset you poweflifters who specialise in the three lifts.

    but, and i repeat, i said they are not necessary, but if you want to do them, then do them.

    but, I don't rate them. do you comprehend what I said this time.

    my reason is I could not be bothered wasting my time, or any others, learning a skill just to do a deadlift.

    I do not see any need for non-powerlifters to do them when the posterior chain can be effectively developed by much simpler exercises.

    but, if they excite you and you love lifting awesome weights (even sumo style), then do them.

    neither does a non-powerlifter, around 99.9999999999% of the population.

    those lifts are just three of many choices.

    many bb's use bench ad squats, and some do not.

    you see shrek, even when people used to come up to me and marvel at my reasonable power clean, I had the honesty to break it down and point out why it was not needed.

    very often, these people were more powerful than me, but not skilful or gutsy enough in the lift to do as well.

    viewing lots of bb's, some very powerful, also enlightened me about specific conditioning.

    I have just one opinion of many, but I am happy to stick to what I believe in.

    if people want to get bigger overtime through the powerlifts, then good luck to them.
