Deadlifting is a weightlifting exercise that involves lifting a weighted barbell from the ground to the level of the hips - typically the knees are extended and hips flexed during the "drive" off the ground, which may result in excessive lengthening - semimembranosus origin injuries are the classical excessive lengthening injuries.
