So the next time someone says deadlifting is bad for the back, remind then the alternative (the couch) is 50 times worse.
True. I still marvel at the time I put my back out, bending down from my computer chair to pick something off the ground.
Now I pick 200+ kgs off the ground. I'm stronger than I've ever been in my whole life. And back complaints? Gone.
It's a miracle cure.
