Don't believe the hype that you need to use your legs as the primary movers on the deadlift. So long as you dont look like a scared cat, have strong abs, and work your lower back and glutes this technique is fine and will yield better gains in the long run. If you want to incorporate more legs on the deadlift, try the trap bar.
It is my understanding that WSM tests for drugs (cocaine, heroine, etc.), but not anabolic substances.
