    shoulders behind the bar? My shoulders are in front of the bar if I put it too close to my shins.

    It depends on how tall you are, the inches from the shin biznass is NOT always possible/the best.

    Lean back and pull the weight back into you. If its semi-heavy you won't have to worry about fallling over.

    My problem with moving the bar out in front of me is I tend to round my back if its too far. You just gotta find the right position to start from.

    like cave said. make yourself lean back, but b/c of the weight, you wont, youll come up straight.
    going down sucks, thats where the upper knee scrape comes into play :/

    couple things i noticed with this dl article...

    "There's a lot of pressure on the lower back here, and since the leg involvement has been minimized, it means this exercise is not only unsafe but highly inefficient. After all, the legs are much stronger than the lower back, and they should be the ones doing the work."

    i always hear you shouldn't be squatting the weight up, it's wasted energy....


    [​IMG] << he's lifting the bar from the floor, wouldn't be so rounded if they actualy put some weight on it. in the other pics they show the girl lifting a bar with real weight on it.


    [​IMG]<<notice those wonderful hiking boots, lol, is she doing negative deadlifts or just trying to look hardcore in the gym?

    I think they are trying to stress the importance of taking the load off the spine and putting it elsewhere. The load is going to be picked up by your spinal erectors, glutes and hamstrings. Arch hard and that will keep your spine from exploding

    thats how i roll


    In other news, do you guys get a sharp pain between the shoulders when in the full standing position (after youve lifted the weight)? I noticed it yesterday when I was doing them and again this morning.

    I actually don't love this picture. There's no way a good deadlifter would start with their quads parallel to the ground like that, if she started moving the weight from that position, she'd be squatting it up, and you will not move a bunch of weight if you're doing it like that. Keep her shoulder position as it is relative to the bar and arch her back so that her ass is higher in the air and you've got a solid stance. Arch your back, keep your shoulders behind the bar and pull backwards.
