Look for the feeling of pushing the ground away, and all the time with intra-abdominal pressure and the bar close to the body.Per Olsson, Strength stairs
Time needed: 1 minute.
- Find a starting position
Stand shoulder-wide so you can hold the bar with your arms hanging straight down and outside your knees.
Squeeze the shoulders together to increase stability.
The underside of the shoes / feet should touch the floor throughout the lift to increase stability.
- Grab the bar
The most common is reversed grip
- Breath in and hold the breath
One deep breath to create intra-abdominal pressure which gives the back support.
- Pull the bar
Up to a stand up position with the bar hanging towards the thighs.
- Stop and/or turn
One or two second stop creates a higher load in the critical stop, you might need to lower the weights compared to turning up directly.
- Lower the bar
Squeeze the air out between your lips meanwhile.
Deadlift is a compound exercise in weight lifting
Hamstrings, back and the gluteus muscles
A bar, weights and collars.
For example Sumo deadlift, Goodmorning lift and Partial deadlift (“Silver dollar deadlift”)
Keep in good contact the floor and look for the feeling of pushing the floor down.
Lift close to the body to avoid unnecessary momentum
Lift together with someone supporting you so the focus can be on the lift.
