Deadlift barefoot?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Deadlift barefoot? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I have seen guys in the gym deadlifting without shoes. How come they do that ? Any reason or they just want to air out the stank?

    Just being closer to the floor so less height to lift.

    Also if the heel of the shoe is fairly high chances are it's gonna tilt you forward once you initiate the lift.

    Re: Deadlift barefoot?

    why they do it is what mobster said for the most part

    but the smart guys do it because frankly it is the healthiest way to exercise. runners SHOULD run barefoot as much as they can instead of in shoes because it prevents injuries

    having said all that if someone works out barefoot in any half decent gym they should be kicked out, that is incredibly disgusting and unsanitary.. the only time i lift barefoot is in my own garage.

    I deadlift at the gym in long socks only. I really prefer it a lot, however in most sanctioned events you will be required to where some sort of shoe.
