The stronger you get, the more important technique becomes, and one inch can make the biggest difference in the world”. Technique is the number one thing you should look at when you get stuck on Deadlifts. Some pointers:
- Don’t Pull – Push. You have to use your hip muscles. Deadlift by driving through your heels, push your hips forward once the bar reaches knee level, and lock the weight by squeezing your glutes hard at the top.
- Don’t Squat – Deadlift. Deadlifts are NOT Squats, your hips have to be higher to pull big weights and so you don’t hit your shins on each rep.Raise your hips so your shoulder-blades end up over the bar.
- Use Your Legs. Your hips should be higher than when your Squat, but not too high otherwise your lower back will be doing all the work.Strength Workout (SWOD) A1. 4 x 5 Deadlift (60, 65, 70, 75) A2. 3 x 10 ScarecrowsWorkout of the Day (WOD) Every 5 mins for 15mins 300m Row or 15 Calories on Airdyne 50 Double Unders 15 KB Swings (70/44)
