We train the lifts to get stronger, not to chase a number. Leave you ego at the door and lift to your capacity but not beyond. To safely deadlift, you MUST maintain midline stability by keeping a flat back (natural arch) and a belly full of air. Engage all of the muscles of your abdomen and back to keep your spine held statically neutral. Do not be lazy with your body control. The deadlift is safe providing you use the correct technique. Abandon any lift where you cannot maintain midline stability. Listen to your body. Train your body.
