    Good article. It's strange though that he said push the Earth away as a cue (which is correct), but then goes on to describe the DL as a standing leg press. Think of the bar as being fixed into the Earth, something you will never move, and pretend that you use the bar to pull yourself through the floor.

    I hope people will go to the t-nation article and give the author some love. This was a lot of work.

    Interesting. Are you tall or long-armed? I am short and that might contribute to me viewing the lift as a push-first.
