    The deadlift has gotten a lot of pushback among casual fitness guys, and it's usually the first thing to go (back for your back, you know). The power clean is a pretty popular replacement because it's what NFL S+C says you should do instead, if people can be convinced they need to do any pulling from the floor.

    I presume he means that deadlifts cause delayed onset muscle soreness that interferes with flexibility and other exercise activities.
    Sounds like hes deadlifting incorrectly. But Taleb has been incorrect about a great many things in the past several years.
