Standard Raw Deadlift. No belt, no straps, no gloves. When pushing yourself with training, it's essential to listen to your body, the very thing you're trying to train. The human body is a fascinating work of art... an intricately designed machine, equipped with sensors and mechanisms built for survival. Being mindfully in tune with this machine and physically self-aware is to do justice to this great gift you have. This is very difficult task for many people, particularly the male gender in my professional experience (I've been found guilty myself 😅). We often tend to take pride in pushing our body's during training beyond what it can handle, even to the point of injury. Battle scars can be cool, but not when they are gained through ignorance. Here, I perform heavy deadlifts to the point of fatigue, with the goal of building a stronger body. High load, high sets and low reps is a great way to build strength, but as you may notice in the video, my form began to compromise with fatigue after multiple sets, particularly after this second rep. I couldn't hold a neutral spine during the lift, and my lower back lordosis began to flex. If I were to continue, I just train poor patterning. Do it enough times and I will sustain injury. I chose to stop. Listen to your body and stop when you feel you're form is compromised to the point of possible counterproductivity. Remind yourself why you do what you do, and anything that impedes you from getting to your goal is best avoided. Remember why you're working so hard, remember why you began in the first place, remember your end goal. Some food for thought. My end goal is to build a healthy resilient machine, what's yours?
