Almost 1800lb Deadlift, no biggie

Physiqz says

Pretty awesome but also seems like a good way to get injured given the awkwardness/uneveness of both sides of the bar during the lift.

Is there life after low back injury!??

Physiqz says

I recommend you check out johnie canditoes recent videos on youtube. he is a well known and respected powerlifter who had a back injury and was able to rehab back from it.
