Default Deadlift Focus

Hi all, I was just wondering... is a proper deadlift felt more in the heels of the feet and glutes or am I doing it wrong?

If you are talking about conventional deadlift, the center of gravity is right in front of you so you should feel it mostly in the middle and back part of the foot. regarding what muscle you're using, the deadlift is a complete posterior chain exercise. you should feel it in you hamstrings, glutes, and back. i always feel my hamstrings drained out after deadlifting, it really doesnt matter as long as you have good form. Hope this helped

with that post, it's nearly impossible to judge your form without a video. we need a lot more detail before someone can give you advice.

I don't really feel the deadlift in a certain area. I more concentrate on keeping my form cues so I perform it properly. Some people try to drive through the heels. I prefer to think about pulling the bar back towards my body from the start. This helps me not get over the bar, and helps to prevent my hips from coming up.

I usually like thinking about driving with my heels and falling backwards. Helps a lot with nailing technique, IMO.

You should feel it throughout your whole posterior chain. Not just your bum, lol.

I've only felt a deadlift in certain areas when my form was bad. When my form is on, I feel it in my face only.

Haha. Yup. It makes your face feel like it would explode and eyes pop out of your head.

Somehow, that actually makes sense to me. I know that feel. Bizarre.

Only when it goes as close to perfectly as I can get it, but still, yeah.

the only place I feel the dead lift is through my legs when I stand up with it and in my traps and upper back when I hold the bar for a few seconds at the top.

Eric's written about this out here:

What Muscle Should I Feel Working When I Do Deadlifts and Why Do I Feel It Mostly in My Back?

In terms of soreness I have experienced soreness mostly via just being tired on the whole.
