Closer Look

PeterDeadlift Peter Deadlifting and Eric and Ben doing toes to bar at noon.

At first glance Peter's deadlift looks pretty good. His back is straight, his shins are nearly vertical and his butt is out. If you look a little closer, you can see his weight is shifted forward, his shoulders are getting pulled out of position and his head is not in line with the rest of his spine. The lift is safe, but if Peter were to activate his upper back, put his chin down and push his heels into the ground, he would be faster and he would lift more weight. Better technique will lead to better performance in the long run. I showed Peter the picture, we worked on it a little and he is ready to do better next time.
