    DeadLift Check

    September 11, 2016, 7:35 pm

    Hi, I recentlly saw the video about the "8 mistakes in deadlift", and I think I am doing one. I asked in the video as well, and I was told to ask here ("I have a question about the second mistake you talk about, I tend to do exactly what you said is wrong, but the thing my shoulders/back is quite wide (so I am in the range of my shoulders), so I feel like I am doing it properlly. Should I close my feet?").

    Sorry for the bad angle tho, but I am worried only about if I am spreading the legs too much.
    Thank you very much!!!

    Hey man, I checked out your video and it is kind of hard to tell from that angle. However, given how far apart your legs are, I would say that yes, you probably want to bring them in a bit closer. It's really as simple as that.

    If you look at your knees, they are about shoulder width, and from there you can tell that it therefore means your feet are OUTSIDE of shoulder width. Your hands are also a bit wider than shoulder width, so once you bring your feet closer together, you'll be able to grip closer (sholuder width) too.

    So it's a real simpel fix - just bring your feet closer like Scott shows in the video and you'll be on track :)
