google. Deadlifting on Images.
That's how I had to learn since NO ONE dead lifts at my gym.
It's so sad.
I'm the only one.
Ditto, although I don't think it's sad. It's their loss not mine.Originally Posted by gotripped
doesnt that guys form look horrible? his back rounds at the bottom.Originally Posted by Evo
thanks for the links
oh and your not supposed to use your lower back to lift the weight when deadlifting right?
i have heard many opinions on this, some say use my back, some say use my legs.
and you are suppoed to tighten your core (flex abs, lower back, obliques, etc) right?
That guy's doing stiff-legged deadlifts, which are used more as a hamstring exercise than for lower back. Watch the other videos Deech posted for the other forms which are used more as lower back movements.Originally Posted by khan8
just one thing to note when you watch these videos is that the lifter's head is always up and always facing foreward.
This will really help keep your back straight.
ohh so for stiff leg stuff its ok to round a little bit?Originally Posted by rpen22
I wouldn't suggest purposely letting your back round on any movement like that but i believe some people do to get maximum stretch of the hamstrings.Originally Posted by khan8
Here's a video of stiff-legged deads with a straight back:
