The deadlift tests raw strength possibly better than any other lift.  It differs from the other main lifts because it starts in the bottom position, without the benefit of a stretch reflex provided by an eccentric--lowering--portion prior to the concentric--up--portion.  Luckily, we have a simple 5-step process to help you get in the correct position each time.

5 Step Set Up

  1. Stance
  2. Grip
  3. Shins to bar and knees to elbow
  4. Squeeze your chest up
  5. Drive the floor away and drag the bar up your leg

Explore the finer details of each step so you can deadlift correctly, improve your form, or better coach your clients.
