Deadlifting: it's the new weightvest!Cheers Rodma, no there's a gym at the wall there's no excuse not to do a session once a week or so and see what the results are like.
as soon as you see results you will do more.
I'm not quite sure of the exact sport science, but exercises such as deadlifting lead to an increase in metabolic rate that lasts for much longer than the exercise itself.Therefore, if you can avoid eating extra, lifting weights should help burn the fat. However, it might just cause you to feel more hungry and as a result stuff more food into your face than necessary and thus gain weight.
I lost weight... I think it depends on the lifts and rep/set structure. Stuck to the full body Olympic lifts, Deadlifts and Squats. Got stronger and dropped weight (but I am a bit of a fatty)
IIRC, high intensity-short duration sports were the ones with the highest post activity calory consumption.
wandered into the middle of a rugby boy's weights session today looking for extra weightwarmed up on 60kgthen 100kgthen thought "sod it" and went up to 130kg then did 3 reps at 140kg before finishing off with a few more at 130kgwas fun and pretty pleasing for a first proper go(btw I weigh 80kg so it's not quite 2xBW yet - but that's something for the future)
Has anyone got any definitive proof that deadlifting actually helps their climbing and if so what type of climbing does it help?Bouldering, Sport/trad, or both?

What is a rep of a deadlift? Do you let the bar touch the floor? Do you let go between reps?
