These shocking steps are so simple for improving your deadlift, I really had to slap my momma for this.
First and foremost, deadlifting is an art and should be refined and reflected upon.
These steps are so effective, they are deadly.
I have personally witnessed one guy use these 3 key pointers and now he is deadlifting steel beams.
What did he do differently?
This Guy Trained Explosively!
He didn’t do this every workout, nor did he use really heavy weight either. Shockingly enough, maxing out would have been a big hindrance during training.
This is why he cut the weight by half and started repping them out as fast as possible with perfect form each time.
That beats the notion of using heavy weight to get stronger.
Cut your weight, rep it out with some high RPM’s.
Results in under 50 minutes…well sort of.
This Guy Cut His Range Of Motion In Half! Heresy?!
Not exactly heresy, but I can guarantee you the ROM overly obsessed crew would get on my case.
But it has to be said!
With range of motion, it is not always recommended to do it with every exercise.
The deadlift however, it works fantastically!
Cutting the range of motion can be done in many ways: power rack, mats, wooden blocks or weight plates.
Deadlifting just below the knee accomplishes 4 things:
- Overload top part of deadlift.
- Building stronger lockouts.
- Handle much more weight.
- Builds a back that blocks out the sun.
Lastly, He Focused On Supporting Muscles
Supporting muscles are a key component to maximizing your deadlift to 800 lbs +.
These exercises should be included if your serious about your deadlift strength.
There is tons of exercises you can do, but these are the top ones that are a must.
Leg Press – Killer Legs Is Necessary
Kettlebell Swings – Building the hamstrings, glutes, lower back and for learning how to be explosive in movements.
Plank – For strengthening the core and maintaining tightness.
Farmer’s Walk – Building strong traps and grip.
Any type of rows – For back & lat strength.
3 steps that were so simple, you probably slapped your momma in between lines.
There is so much more that can be done to take your deadlift from good to celebrity status.
Which is why Dave Dellanave can teach it like no other.
Author of “Off the Floor” manual for deadlift domination.
Dave goes through great lengths to provide every angle on the deadlift.
We should know, we read it and haven’t seen the deadlift the same way again.
How about learning the Sumo deadlift but the Jefferson version?
Or maybe you want to impress people with a one-handed deadlift?
This book is great for those who train others or looking to get stronger than an ox in the deadlift.
You can see more information about that here. —-> “Off the floor. A Manual For Deadlift Domination”
