Deadlift tip 👌🏼👌🏼Repost from our trainer @_trainingwithsy
The deadlift is a super simple looking exercise but SO much can go wrong if your set up is off, have the wrong mental cues going on while lifting, or drill in bad habits that get created when lifting heavy all of the time.
One of the most common problems people run into when deadlifting is lower back pain. This is commonly due to improper form and doing whatever it takes to lift the bar without any proper set up.
In today's video I go over a little trick I love to use with my clients to help ensure that their form stays consistent every time they deadlift to make sure they are using the "right" muscles to pick the weight off of the ground and eliminate the overuse of the lower back
**Note The lower back does get used in the deadlift, however, it should never be the primary mover of the lift. The lower back flexes isometrically and synergistically with the rest of the core muscles to allow a solid transfer of energy from your feet, through the legs, up through the trunk, and into the hands in order to move the barbell.
The tighter you can brace your core (your whole midsection) and the rest of your body, the less of a "power leak" will occur and the stronger your deadlift will become. 🙏
Try this before your deadlifting session with light weights first before moving on to heavier deadlifting. Then make sure you feel the tension before you begin your reps.What are some troubles you run into with your deadlift?
