Deadlifts are useless for building strength

So today I started my workout with Deadlifts and was told by another lifter (in my class and on my football team) that doing barbell deadlifts were useless and that the would not help me at all. this all sparked from me doing bb dadlifts rather than the trap bar deadlifts like everyone else. They then told me that (even though my form was right) my back was becoming involved with the movement and that it should be a sole legs workout. They then asked the teacher what he thought as they watched me continue doing bb deadlift and he told them that it was a great way to hurt your back doign it that way and that my lower back was just waiting to be injured doing it with a barbell. I finally just gave up trying to tell them about it and just kept lifting.

i can commiserate with you here. i was the big dude at my highschool and there is so much bullshit and myths that circulate in the gym. i'm glad you know these people are idiots and you should definetely continue deadlifting. i hate that stupid hex-bar deadlift shit they do for highschool football teams

Deadlifts and squats are the best overall mass builders, period!

Serisouly, don't ever listen to other people in telling you what to do. If Deadlifts weren't good for strength and size, then why do you see PROFESSIONAL lifters doing them? They probably aren't doing them so they can just waste time! The only people I listen to for lifiting is MM and Arcane whom I go to school with, that's it! Our football team is o.k. when it comes to lifting, but don't ever base the information they give you! Keep doing those deadlifts!

Remember, deadlifts don't build strength. Only size and the force.

It's your Jedi powers that lift the bar.

haha I would love to see a deadlift done soley using the leg muscles like they think. I can tell you for fact and experience that deads are the best way to pack thick meat on you body. Keep doing deads my friend and when those silly little jocks see those fatty ass erectors on you starting to starting to pop out, making you thick as an oak, just point and laugh at there miniscule physiques.

Distance yourself from those cretins as much as possible, and block off any noise that eminates from their mouths as it is clearly useless.
