Dead Lift with specific intent

As we started getting the weights to move today, I noticed a tendency to be kind of "loose" and unfocused.  Granted it was early in the morning, but that should make it even more important to pay attention to the details.

I have seen less injury at heavier weights because there is a need to focus on technique more than ever.  But the weight used at the dynamic level or even during the warm up should not be overlooked.

More people get "dinged" up on the way UP to their practice weight because they are engaging in small talk and banter.  THAT is the perfect opportunity to really square the technique away.

Today's mantra was simple:

1. Ground your feet

2. Push your torso into your belt

3. Grab the bar and bend it around your shins

4. Shoulder blades into your back pocket

5. Get the slack out of the bar

6. Lean back, arch and rip!


The review went well.
