“There’s a right and wrong way for you to train your body, and it’s largely based upon your postural alignment. If you’re training incorrectly, you’re leaving pounds on the bar and/or increasing your likelihood of injury. However, if you understand and correctly apply these concepts, you can improve your alignment, your lifting, and your athletic performance, all while injury-proofing your body.”
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say, “I’ve trained like this for years and never had an issue, so I don’t know what happened.” You’ve constantly reinforced bad posture and poor movement patterns, and at some point your body is going to break down. It’s the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.”
“Here’s what you need to know…
There’s now a third style of deadlift:
1.The squat-stance deadlift.
This style combines the best elements of conventional and sumo.
2.The squat-stance deadlift has no sticking point.
Unlike the other two styles of deadlift, it has even tension throughout.
3.This deadlift style has incredible transfer – squat to deadlift and deadlift to squat.
Each time you train one, you’re training the other.
4.The squat-stance deadlift is therapeutic.
It promotes optimal movement while helping to eliminate dysfunction.
5.It works for everyone.
Most athletes who try this method will adopt it as their go-to deadlift technique.”
