Keep ya spine neutral!
Here's an easy way to make sure your in the proper position to do many different exercises, like the DEADLIFT! Beginners and lifters with injuries should learn to stay in the neutral zone when lifting to prevent injury or further stress on their backs... but remember there are always exceptions, like experienced powerlifters and other athletes who use differing techniques during max effort lifts. If you're not one of those, then try this out!!! Fix your form, feel less pain🤗
1. Grab a PVC pipe or something else that is straight and lightweight
2. Place on your back and make sure it touches your tail bone, in between your shoulder blades, and the back of your head (which is why my pony tail is to the side lol)
3. Push your hips back while maintaining those 3 points of contact with the pipe.
4. If you lose any point of contact then you are either keeping your chin up top much (try looking down instead), rounding your lower back, or pushing past your personal range of motion (can be fixed with better flexibility and mobility). This should help you to do a large range of exercises and get the most out of each of them💪
