DSC00769Dave working the deadlift

Not all of us start CrossFit with long and strong muscles. What this may result in, is the inability to find a good set up position for the deadlift. What can we do to work towards better position in the meanwhile? We use parallettes. In the photo above you can see that by raising the bar a few inches off the ground Dave is able to get into an good set up position. This is a temporary fix. The beauty of this modification is that we can work 90% of the range we need, while working toward getting the bar on the floor.
