    Multiple Sclerosis doesn't stop me from Lifting...Check out my Deadlifting Video

    So the Doctors tell me a year ago that I have Multiple Sclerosis because my left leg is numb...
    So what.

    As a 33 year old Father of 2 small kids...I decided that rather than just feel bad for my self, That I'd start lifting to make myself as strong as possible to fend off any future disability.

    The Ax is hanging over all of our heads...I just know that mine happens to say M.S. on it. Better to be a moving target.

    I just started deadlifting a few months back to put on some size and overall strength.
    My bodyweight right now is about 188,

    Check out my deadlifting video - 425 x 1

    I have to deadlift sumo style do to the balance issues.

    Best Regards,
    Lance

    I'm glad you're not letting it get the best of you. My mom also has MS. Thankfully she's not in real bad condition either.

    Looks to me like you could pull even more too. Nice!

    Awesome. Heh. To be honest though I thought this was a joke thread and that you were going to link in that video of a kid spastically deadlifting in his garage. PLEASE go find that kid and show him how to lift correctly...

    Great job, I hate it when people come up with lame excuses about why they can't work out.. Truly inspirational.

    Thanks Everyone...
    Does my form look good?

    425lbs...Is that considered a pretty respectable deadlift?

    Thanks,
    Lance

    I think, given your bodyweight, it is certainly respectable.

    Your form looks fine really. However, there is always room for improvement. I frequently go back and watch videos and read articles on form to generate fresh ideas on ways to maintain better form more consistently and just keep myself fresh on the details. Here is an article you should check:
