Sam Sulek Reveals The Weightlifting Exercise To Avoid At All Costs

The 21-year-old YouTube star has taken a strong stance against a complex workout that many love but may be preventing you from progressing.

Bodybuilder Sam Sulek has gained a lot of notoriety in recent months and years because of his incredible physique, unconventional social media and YouTube posting style, and several contentious hot takes that regularly send the fitness community into a frenzy.

Recently, the internet celebrity went hard on a compound exercise that many bodybuilders, powerlifters, and athletes consider to be a timeless classic in his most recent vlog, which documents Day 72 of his amazing Winter Bulk.

He certainly has excellent reasoning, even though it might surprise you at first.

In order to tackle leg day, which is many lifters’ least favorite day of the week, Sulek travels to the recognizable, albeit notorious, Planet Fitness. In the conclusion of the video, Sulek claims that he finished a strong workout with his “chest held high,” despite doing exercises like Smith machine squats and leg extensions. However, this didn’t stop him from making a divisive statement while taking a break between sets of hamstring curls.

One of the three primary and fundamental lifts in the powerlifting philosophy, along with the chest press and squat, is the deadlift, which involves raising a loaded bar off the ground to an upright standing position while simultaneously working your legs, glutes, back, and core.

Many people consider the deadlift to be a must-do exercise for any good leg (or back) day.

Sulek, predictably, feels differently. Instead, the bodybuilder says that he steers clear of deadlifts whenever possible because training a large portion of the body at once can actually leave you exhausted, overworked, and “blown apart,” making it difficult to continue working out at a high intensity and level of focus for the duration of your workout.

“Unveiling the Debate: Compound vs. Isolation Exercises in Fitness Training”

“I would definitely suffer injury to my erectors, lower back, and traps if I performed another set of deadlifts for ten repetitions using as much weight as possible.”

Rather than targeting many muscular parts simultaneously, Sulek prefers the “efficiency” of workouts like the hamstring curl, which focuses on the single muscle you want to develop and get bigger.

This argument succinctly summarizes the long-running controversy about the optimal type of exercise for recuperation, growth, and fitness: isolation vs compound movements.

The person I’m aiming at is the one I’m hitting. There is nothing more at stake.

When you see Sulek’s chocolate-milk-fueled results, his idea is at least worth contemplating, if not embracing entirely.

This is true whether you’re a powerlifter who couldn’t be paid to give up the king of compound motions, like me.

Whether you’re looking for some variations to the standard deadlift or for workouts and exercises for men, you’re sure to find something for you.
