  • Heeled shoe for deadlifting.

    Just wondering where you stand on deadlifting in a heeled shoe or flat ?

    Thanks in advance

    It doesn't really matter, other than you'll probably lift less weight with a heeled shoe, as it alters balance point and contact patch for the center of pressure.

    Here are things that using a heeled shoe don't do:

    1) Use more quads, hamstrings, or any other muscle group
    2) Make you more virtuous of a human being
    3) Prevent foot injuries
    4) make you lift more weight

    If you're not a competitor then I don't think it really matters outside of people making things up on the Internet.
