I noticed a lot of lifters here were advocating the deadlift. Just out of curiosity...what the heck is a "proper" deadlift. The one I've been shown is one where the weight is lifted using and under/under grip, then you explosively bring it up to your chin to the standing military press position, where you complete the upward phase by extending it up and out, then you let it back down to the start. On the other hand...I've seen in references that the "standard" deadlift is simply one where you essentially just pick the weight up, stand up, then immediately set it back down. Like so: http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/ErectorSpinae/BBDeadlift.html So when you guys advise people to do deadlifts...which ones do you mean?
