3 Great Deadlift Tips
Deadlift isn’t about the speed of getting the weight off the floor. That’s not how it works.
Many have the wrong idea that the deadlift isn’t as technical as the squat or the bench press. Boy, aren’t they wrong big time. It’s as complicated, if not more so.
Why? It’s because the correct way to raise the bar is by gradually accelerating it as you go, as opposed to “popping” it off the floor.
These are the specific ways on how to do it.
The first upward pressure you exert on the bar should pull the “slack” out of it. Specifically, you pull until you feel the bar starting to bend. Then you begin your ascent.
GET it in the AIR
Once the bar is off the floor, keep it moving by using acceleration, not by jerking it up. Push through your heels and fall backward.
PASS YOUR KNEES and GO
When the bar is just above the knees, shift into high gear and hit top speed. Use the momentum gathered to finish the lift.
