    First time ever barbell deadlift

    January 3, 2018, 8:50 am

     

    I did Pull A this morning but had to abbreviate the latter part to 3 sets each due to time constraints.

     

    I used the gym at the school I teach at.

     

    I warmed up with 65, then did my sets at 135, 155, and 185. AMRAP was 95.

     

    How's my form?

    Thank you Scott! I guess I was checking my own form in the mirror :) thanks for noticing and taking a look. Hope you're having a great day and ready for a blast of winter tomorrow here in the NE!

    Scott, what do you mean by head straight, not up? His head is just looking straight forward.

    On the way down especially I am looking straight ahead instead of curving my head in line with my back. I'm supposed to bend at the waist first as I lower the bar, then bend my knees when the bar gets past my knees.

    At least that's how I think I understand the correct technique :)

    Your head should be in line with your spine which means you will not be looking up but rather down with your head and spine being level - as if a board was strapped to your back and head. When you look up in both deadlifting and squatting (meaning your head bends at a 90 degree angle), this puts undo stress on the neck vertebrae and disks.

    Right on! A neutral spine will change your life when it comes to llifting heavier!
