Saw this on tv, the other day, and thought it may be interesting to bring up for discussion.

I always assumed they were one and the same but a guy stated that the stiff-legged DL meant exactly that and was different to a straight-legged DL.

So, the difference lies in the fact that the straight-legged DL requires straight legs with no bend at the knee, whereas the stiff-legged DL has a slight knee bend with fixed position legs which are not straight.

Which means that on occasion, I have been doing SLDLs and at other times I did SLDLs but who knew?
Me

I am anal about these variations. It drives me cuckoo that people don't know the differences. Mental tick.
