Was just tearing it up at the gym yesterday when I noticed something that I wanted to ask you swole sherbro members about. As I was working out, I noticed a very small guy load up the weights at the deadlift station. He could be no more than 130-135lbs tops, but if I had to guess his weight I would say 120-125lb. Anyway this kid starts slapping plates onto the bar and when its all said and done he was deadlifting 365lb, dude killed it. My question is, how should I expect deadlifts to affect my physique? For a person that was deadlifting 365lb, he sure didn't look like he could pick that amount of weight up, and not because of how little he weighed, but because of his physique. He had zero muscle tone, just short and skinny. Pencil arms, pencil legs, narrow back. I don't get it. I would imagine that building up to a 365lb dead lift would make some significant changes in your overall muscle tone, especially for a guy of his size. Any insights?
