I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment What muscles are deadlifts meant to target?
@CrescentFresh Wow, that's weird. Maybe they meant to differentiate between a straight back and a slightly arched back? More likely it's just a typo. Good eye!

Define "eating well". And are you sure you're using the right gears?

I didn't downvote. I can't read Finnish and I disagree with the dude's conclusions but it's useful to have this as a research lead.

Your assumption that these guys don't lift is wrong. Check yourself.

It's weird to advocate against lifting due to injury risk, considering that injury rates for lifting are lower than most field sports, which are widely recommended for children.

comment What can be the negative effects associated with an overtrained, overdeveloped back?
I think that hyperlordosis would be the problem, but I'm not sure how much problematic hyperlordosis you'd see caused by strength training/bodybuilding, since most big back exercises (deadlifts, back squats) involve anterior stabilization and glute work (which would work against overextension of the back). This is true of upper body pressing work as well (bench requires upper back strength), but I think it's to a lesser degree? I'm not sure.

The more common terminology is 'reps' (repetitions) instead of lifts and 'sets' instead of series.

comment Critique my SL + Greyskull hybrid
Reading your comments, I am now even more sure that you should either do Phrak's GSLP or re-invest yourself in StrongLifts. If deadlifting after rows is an issue then just do rows last on deadlift day. Every other reason you list is better served by the two programs I cite.
