Very great points expressed in the video. We have been using this as a guideline for our clients. We have them on programs similar to:

The key points were broken down perfectly. Very easy to understand and implement.
I have the same query as Mr Tank. Is there any recommendation for hip position/height for the deadlift, or does it all depend on which muscle groups you wish to target?
Great video. More please!
This video demonstration uses a low hip position and upright torso (similar to a squat) at the bottom position causing there to be forward knee movement. I've experience much success in the deadlift, with myself and others, using a higher hip position
more» that does not allow forward knee movement. This way the lifter has a more vertical shin angle and can utilize the hips properly while strengthening the posterior chain muscles just as well. Any thoughts? Thanks!«less
Excellent video, very good key points to focus on. In response to Mr. Edwards question when a lifter should sacrifice form in order to finish 1 RM deadlift. I understand your dilemma, because when individuals start to struggle with weight their form
more» typically breaks down. In my opinion you should never sacrifice form in order to increase weight in a deadlift. If the form is not maintained that puts the lifter in serious risk of injury especially when heavy weight is brought into the equation.«less
This is good stuff. I would show this to students and athletes alike. My biggest question/concern is, as the weight increases the proper form is typically the first thing to go. You rarely find a good video demonstrating the lifter struggling with the
more» weight, and what the proper steps are when the lifter is attempting a 1 RM and fails, or struggles to finish the lift. How much should the lifter sacrifice (in terms of form) to finish the lift, verses abandoning the lift all together.«less
Love the key points!
Love it! I want more!
Excellent vid, keep them coming
