the bar always hits my knees on the way up.... am i supposed to stick my ass out more?
You're actually supposed to drag it up your legs..
my right shin gets owned by d/ls
then get some good gloves.
EHHHHH WRONG!!!! let the bar come out infront of youir body so it about a foot infont of you as you pull.
Having the bar out too far in front of you can cause your back to round and fuck the lift up. I know because thats what I did for the longest time.
By bringing the bar closer to my shins I can get better leverage and pull back with the weight.
I never have the bar drag up my leg its infront of me(the bar) and I get my shins close the the bar in shoulder width stance with arms outside.I've had maybe a knee hit or two in the past but not too many problems.
my lower back loves hte burn from deadlifts
i fucking love deadlifts.....they have helped me with my straight bar curls tremendously
I only have a problem with letting it drag on my legs right above my knees when I set it down. I keep it close to my shins on the way up but never have a problem with dragging it across my legs on the way up (the bar is right over my toes when I start).
I start with it about a foot away.
fixed for me.
baby powder . the secret is out!
I have a question as well about deadlifts, just never felt like making a thread about it.
When doing them, do you want to concentrate more on moving your hips/butt out when going down, then bringing them back in when coming up?
close to shins, very close
get some shin pads or rugby socks perhaps?
Is this right, or do you guys recommend doing it slightly differently than what's here
I suck at deadlifting, my wrists have been sprained so many times that they always hurt way before I work my back or legs anywhere near failure. Any tips on good form to ease wrist pain?
I was doing deadlifts 2 days ago in the gym, correctly for that matter (Did this lift for like 2 years now) and a friend of mine who is obese (315 lbs, 6'5") comes to me and watches for a few reps and "corrects" me. Now before I go on, this guy's dying passion is to correct EVERYONE in the gym, yet he only started lifting this year. So he shows me his version of it, which looked quite a lot like a stiff legged deadlift. Moral of the story: Don't correct people in the gym, unless you seriously know your shit.
whats funny about that?
You call a stupid person friend.
