Dead Lifts Description And Introduction


Deadlifts - Anyone who includes this unstoppable force of exercise in their training programme knows the mind blowing results it can produce when performed right and executed with perfect technique alongside a smart fitness regime. For an exercise that uses around 21 muscles in the body, try to do it properly (and that goes for all reps during each set people). Sadly too many people in the gym are performing this lift with sloppy and highly dangerous form, the most common being the rounded back approach (1 way ticket to snap city) and then there's just the typical too heavy technique which looks similar to a squirrel having a seizure. It all comes down to practice and patience, knowing what your actually doing and having guidance throughout the different parts of the lift if your unsure. It's just too easy to pick a bar up and keep reppin’ it, but if your looking to master your technique and this goes for all exercises, educate yourself and take your time with it.



Here's some Key points that I always keep in mind: 


•Chest high in the sky 

•ScapulaI back and keep it right

•Drive heels through the floor 

•Keep arms locked straight at all times 

•Sit that ass back from the start 

•Keep a neutral spine 

•Aim to keep perfect alignment in spine throughout the lift 

•Drive powerfully with hips 

•Squeeze that ass!



Practise makes perfect - Keep your body tight, drive your heels through the ground and maintain perfect alignement throughout your spine. Keep your chest high and drive your hips through the barbell when it passes your shins to lock out the movement.
