6 Tips for a Stronger Deadlift

6 Tips for a Stronger Deadlift

I have a love hate relationship with the deadlift.

It has always been one of my worst lifts in training.  It is also the lift that caused me a serious back injury 10 years ago.  Needless to say after that injury, 2 bicep tears and just lifting weights for 20 years, I have a deep respect for The Deadlift.

Over the last year I have trained with some of THE BEST strength coaches and injury experts to improve my own training and to become a better coach at at my gym, Heavyweights Training Center.

Learning from experts like Jason Ferrugia, Dr. Stu McGill, Dean Somerset, Dan John and more, I am beyond happy to be able to do deadlifts, and to lift heavy weights again:).

Two of the BEST resources I have ever read on deadlifting are Deadlift Dynamite and PowerLifting from Amazon.com

Here are 6 video tips to help you have stronger and injury-free deadlifts.
