Deadlift vs stiff leg dead lift

Hi,

Whats the difference technique wise between the deadlift and the stiff leg deadlift; I start my new split today and the stiff leg deadlift is on my my leg day.

Any links to videos or advice will be great.

    The deadlift tends to concentrate on the back and legs more, as well as using most muscles of the body.

    The Stiff Leg Deadlift is utilised for hamstring training.

    No probs.

    This is the stiff legged deadlift http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BBStrBackStrLegDeadlift.html

    Basically you keep a slight bend in the leg during the movement and almost try to sit down as you push your hips back, allows for the hamstrings to be worked more.

    and keep your form right on normal deadlifts!

    I clicked my lower back out a few weeks ago repping 220kg (was easy, so I was complacent) - still not better, but was very lucky

    Raw dead Lift 320kg
    Raw bench 171kg
    Shirted bench 200kg
    Amateur cage fighter @ 95 - 105kg
    :o)

    gonna leave stiff leg deadlifts for now because I have been prone to a bad back in the past and I only started deadlifting a couple of weeks ago so Im gonna stick wiht just the deadlift on a fairly low weight.

    Yes, of course, the back will act as a synergist for the movement, but the emphasis should be on the hamstrings.

    I love SLDL, had a back problem a few years ago but was advised to include any deadlift plus hypers to strengthen the muscles. I do it with perfect form and it's fine. Works hams, back, traps and grip when you straighten up using a little shrug at the end.

    Do you really need to stand on something to do these? Going to attempt them for the first time today.

    Standing on something increases the range of motion. If you've got the flexibility for it this can be a good way to do them. Otherwise just lower the bar almost to the floor and pull back up.
