But anyway, all complaining aside , I do some arm work every week, and that's the reason really. Just a few sets each for tris and bis seems to do the trick.


edit: So it's probably case by case too.
so people with long limbs are usually better at the deadlift than the squat and bench ?

I'm not entirely sure, but it seems to me that long arms make for a more difficult bench, and long femurs for (usually) a more difficult squat.

Maybe long arms can help with deadlifts - or, compared to bench, for people like me, it's likely to be better.

So for example, 112.5kg (bench) and 160kg (squat) ... vs. 220kg deadlift! :/ *

Might be wrong, of course. It's not like I'm that experienced a lifter, and I definitely haven't studied biomechanics or whatever.


* So far, when I've actually done singles, a while back...

Strength form head to toe is never a bad thing. Build a base.

Not an absolute but for the most part yes. Longer ROM on bench press, shorter ROM on deadlift.
