Sumo Deadlift and Helen

bryan sumo Sumo Deadlift and Helen Sumo Deadlift and CrossFit Helen In today’s strength WOD we are starting back with the 5/3/1 Sumo Deadlift.  Deadlifts done incorrectly are horrible for your spine. I can’t argue with that.  However, when done correctly – with a neutral spine and proper hip hinge – they’ll do more as far as “bullet proofing” the body than any other exercise.  Make sure to finish with your hips (hump the bar) with every rep.  One of the biggest mistakes I see athletes make is that they don’t finish the rep with their glutes. Squeeze those bad boys at the top.  Deadlifts teach the glutes to share the load which will also help spare the spine. Slow people down!!!! When performing deadlifts, I like to tell people that each rep is its own set.  Meaning, when they pull the bar off the ground, lock it out, and then descend back to the floor, tell them to rest for a second or two (after all, it is a DEADlift, not a bouncelift) and re-adjust their spinal position, get their air, and properly set up for the next rep. ross sumo deadlift Strength Workout (SWOD) 5/3/1 Sumo Deadlift dave sumo crossfit Workout of the Day Helen 3 Rounds for Time 400m Run 21 Kb Swings (53/35) 12 Pull Ups]]>
