      Highly disagree--deadlifts are great for overall strength and with proper form are completely safe. Hang cleans are far more dangerous in my opinion. Just because Robert got injured doesn't mean that normal people will.

                            Fuck off Oberst. Deadlifts are the best. He's only saying this because he's shit at deadlifts compared to all the other strongmen out there.

                                  No dead lifts... hang & power cleaning bc of risk vs reward. Now I don't feel guilty for not dead lifting !

                                    @Abcdefg Hijklmno you could be correct. He could just be saying it is a bad exercise when you're trying to max out. If you do it and ensure that you have correct form and try to get a few reps instead of a one-rep Max it probably could be very useful.

I accepted the conventional wisdom that I needed a solid meal to do anything so I had a big breakfast just before a tennis match. I felt horrible the whole time and played the worst match ever. I played much better on an empty stomach.

                                                                                              Eat to recover, not for fuel.

I would eat a big meal before lecture and then I felt sleepy the whole time. If I could do college over again, I would eat after my classes.
