Default 3 Deadlifting Tips You May Have Never Heard Before

3 Deadlifting Tips You May Have Never Heard Before

RearickStrength.com: 3 Deadlifting Tips You May Have Never Heard Before

Quote:
1. Pack the neck. This tip comes courtesy of Charlie Weingroff. “Packing the neck” is actively keeping the neck & spine neutral throughout the ENTIRE lift, start to the finish. But what head position do we usually see when someone deadlifts? (this was also me before I met Charlie of course)

We see this….

Quote:
Lets start with the tongue. By placing the tongue in the roof of your mouth you put the jaw in a better biomechanical position. This action “closes” the neruo muscular gap of the jaw allowing for better stabilization of the neck and it actually makes it easier to get into & maintain our very important neck packed position.
Quote:
3. Suck in like you’re breathing through a straw. Gotta thank low back rehab specialist Stuart McGill for this tip. I attended his hands on at the summit and he started the day off by having us take a normal breath and then brace. Then he had us breath in like you were sucking through a straw and brace. Wow what a difference! Try it for yourself right now before continuing…

Will try it too. It's gonna be weird since I'm used to keeping the head up, looking straight ahead.

That's probably why I won't try it

I am obsessed with leading with the head during deads. I would like to maintain that focus, and I assume by doing so that the head with naturally stay in the best possible position for the lift.
