It create a dead lock between re-index table and update or select table.
Blocking, yes. Deadlocks, it shouldn't
but you can reduce the load to change the DB to simple recorvery mode first and after re-index change back to Full recovery mode.
Terrible advice. There's no good reason to switch to simple, break the log chain and leave yourself at risk of dataloss. If the log growth is a problem (nothing to do with locking) then bulk-logged recovery can be used for the duration
