Coach’s Lab 7: Deadlift Set-Up
The deadlift is a great movement, we all know that. However, many athletes limit their progress and cause more pain and soreness than is necessary, often the culprit of a faulty set-up. Today, we are going to teach you the proper set-up in the deadlift and how you can deadlift with less, or hopefully no low back discomfort.
FAULT: Shoulders forward of the bar, weight in toes, stress on back upon lift off.
FIX: Stack the shoulder over wrist. Lean into the heels.
Get your set-up correct and everything else tends to fall into place.
