smashing out Friday Deadlifts! I can feel a massive PB coming!
Some technique pointers for deadlifts:
1. Set up with a neutral spine, take a deep breath in and drawn in with your abs, clamping your rib cage down to get max abdominal activation (hold your breathe as long as you are healthy and have no heart conditions/high blood pressure, check with your dr before performing this this breath holding technique).
2. Grip the bar as hard as you can, imagining you are breaking it, then pull back on the bar by bringing your shoulder blades together!
3. Drive through the middle of your feet as hard as you can, once the bar hits around your mid shin, transition the weight to your heels and lean back so you can bring your hips through.
4 Lock out in a neutral, standing position, try not to over extend the back.
5. Breathe out and slowly bring the bar back to the ground with a neutral spine or if it's a heavy 1rm, just let the weight drop to save yourself from excessive muscle fatigue 😂
Happy lifting team, if you have any questions or any tips that I may have left out please write in the comments 👌
