Deadlifts are a movement I start most people on right when we begin training because they are such a basic and common movement. They’re commonly done with less than ideal form, as well, which is why I like to teach them & focus on form and technique.
This was Rey’s second set and they looked great! There are SO many things to think about in a deadlift, and I never want to overwhelm people so I try to start with 3 things for them to think about. For Rey, it was keeping the bar close to her, shoulders back and down - don’t shrug them at the top of the lift, and to think about the hinge movement we warmed up with.
It’s so cool to see such an improvement from one set to the next! And super fun to teach Rey because she loves to learn and understands the importance of quality of movement over quantity. You guys, we’ve gotta get the basics down first - build that foundation of good movement patterns, then you can do more - whether that’s more weight, more reps, more speed, more complex movements... Alright, I’ll step off my soapbox now. at BodyTribe Fitness
