Video: Proper deadlift technique

Deadlifts are great, but you need good technique to get all you can out of the lift and not get injured.

Deadlifts are great, but you need good technique to get all you can out of the lift and not get injured.

Last week, I wrote about the leg workout I’m doing right now. One of the things I mentioned was deadlifts.

That particular exercise is pretty simple: Pick up a weight, put it back down. Repeat. But the reality is that it is heavy on proper technique. I wrote some things to keep in mind as you’re lifting, but sometimes it is better to be shown than just told. So I found this great video that illustrates good deadlift technique. It’s about 5 minutes long and worth every second. Have a look, and then get after it.
