wear long socks, long pants or shin guards if it bothers you.


need to cancel my membership at the gym i'm currently at, and join one where a bunch of my mates are going. Always get more motivated if i have morepeople i know around

I've never once squatted with a spotter because squat rack safety pins/bars do that job even better.

As far as shins being scraped..make sure your hips aren't lower than your knees like they would be for a squat (common problem), also ensure the bar isn't any further towards you than half of your foot. Alternatively you do what I do when I deadlift, I use a pair or longer socks(tube socks) to save my shins..you can also use sports tape, shin guards etc etc.

Leaning back into the bar, lighten up the weight, or even just use the bar with 0 weight(nobody will laugh at you). Practice your form and slowly add some weight, once you feel you may be leaning back into the bar - stop adding weight there. Even if you're only using say 90lbs , it's the form that will matter and will save your spine in the long run. Proper form will always outweigh heavy weights. Using this technique will DEFINITELY help you find your balance so to speak without the help of a track, just take your time and never give up

Do other people scrape their shins when deadlifting a lot? I get the occasional scrape now & again and thought of wearing socks or even sweat pants. But should I not be scraping my shins at all?

- ninja'd. when I DL my ass always goes probably just below parallel with the floor. I actually thought that was the point. Weirdly I scrape my shins less with heavier weight than less weight.


what are people's opinions on wrist wraps? I've only been using them on dead lifts (stiff and normal) and rows sometimes. But I also do a ton of pullups and use free weights daily. I won't suffer too much from using wraps, correct?

I have long legs so I scrape a lot, hence the use of long socks. It really all depends on the length of your limbs and of course form could play a role for some people as well.

I hit my knees by accident once in a while on the way down but I don't recall hitting shins too often... Tape yourself and see if its a form thing.

I only just started using wrist wraps about a month ago. I definitely helps me get more weight, noticeably. I know some people are 100% for or against them.

wraps are a savior, especially if you have weak wrists or wrists that often give you issues. I am personally all for them when the time calls for them such as with deadlifts and seated low rows

With wrist straps: using them is going to stunt your grip strength. Not using them is going to stunt your overall strength gains. I used to use them too much until I discovered and started using chalk. Chalk them palms up heavily, pull with a mixed grip and the added boost of straps are significantly lowered. I'll still use straps if I'm going heavier than I know my hands can handle (i.e. a 90% or higher set) but I'm trying not to for the rest anymore. Chalk is great for rows, shrugs, etc. and to some extent even pushes like bench or overhead, but that's probably overkill.

yeah, that's what I heard. But I heard it's worth it for Deadlifts, and I only use them sometimes on rows (like if I'm fucking dead tired or they're ate the end of my lift).

chalk isn't allowed at my local LA fitness
