Helpful post here by Jason, giving us all the ques in order to setup a proper deadlift. Read what he has to say 👇 down below. "Today we have a 6-part checklist for a perfect set of conventional deadlifts!
1️⃣FEET HIP WIDTH APART AND BARBELL OVER MID-FOOT: In order to establish a strong base of support, start with your feet under your hips with toes forward or slightly flared out. Step up to the bar so that it’s close to your shins and over your mid-foot.
2️⃣HINGE YOUR HIPS BACK: Initiate the deadlift by sitting back with your hips. This will help you to load your posterior chain (glutes and hamstrings) and get into a strong starting position.
3️⃣GRAB THE BAR JUST OUTSIDE YOUR SHINS: The wider your hands, the greater the demand on your mid and upper back. Keeping your hands in closer will help make the pull feel easier than if they were out too wide.
4️⃣ALIGN YOUR ARMPITS DIRECTLY OVER THE BAR: This will set you up for a more vertical and direct bar path, which makes the deadlift much more efficient.
5️⃣PUSH INTO THE FLOOR AND STAND TALL: Instead of thinking about “lifting” the bar off the floor, think about “pushing” your feet into the ground. The harder you push down into the floor, the stronger your deadlift will be. Stand tall at the top and look straight ahead to practice good alignment.
6️⃣INITIATE THE DESCENT WITH ANOTHER HIP HINGE: Once you’ve gotten to the top of the deadlift, lower it back down by hinging your hips back, loading your posterior chain again, and getting right back into your original starting position.
We hope this checklist helps you out the next time you’re going through a set of deadlifts! Share with a friend who would appreciate it." Continue in the comments...
Do the work, even when nobody is watching.
My mom (shoutout @alchemycee) taught me this lesson about integrity early on and it has fueled my willingness to grind and put in work even if I’m not getting “credit” for it.
There are people who do things for recognition and validation from places outside of themselves, and there are people who do the work they need to do because it’s important to who they are.
The people doing it for rewards and recognition don’t last long once the recognition is gone. When the dust settles, the ones who are left are the ones who are willing to work when nobody is watching.
Keep that in mind going into the weekend. Even if nobody else is watching, the “potential you” who you want to become is. You won’t become that person if you don’t act accordingly.
