Strength and Health TV: Episode 24: Deconstructing the Deadlift.

In this week's episode we are looking at my favorite barbell lift, the deadlift.

While one of the most simplistic lifts, there are a few key technical points, that when addressed, can add more plates to the barbell quickly.

In this video we look at both the conventional and sumo deadlift, cover proper set up and lifting technique, why you need to pull the bar back and not up, and address common mistakes.

I also talk about how to "wedge" youself between the bar and ground to increase tension and power at the beginning of the lift and to hopefully get more out of the pull.

Stay Strong AND Healthy,
