The Deadlift

When it comes down to training hard and getting the most gains out of your workout, it starts with learning proper form.

When I first learned how to deadlift I was trained using a weighted bar. A lot of people jump to slamming down some serious weight but this can quickly lead to a serious injury if you haven’t mastered your form yet. A weighted bar comes in a variety of lbs and they are easy to use and great for learning proper technique. I would suggest getting a personal trainer to show you how to do a deadlift properly and then practice starting with a light bar and work your way up.

Here are just a few things you need to consider when performing a deadlift:

– Position of the bar

– Position of the back

– Shoulder position

– Breathing

– Grip

You can choose from a variety of Weighted Bars at The Treadmill Factory
