Default Dead Lifts

Cathe,

I'm having problems with good form on dead lifts for the back and dead lifts for the hamstrings. When I do them I sometimes have a sore back, that's an indication to me, that I must be doing them wrong.

Also, is there another exercise that could be substituted for the dead lifts in case I do have a sore back and want to modify the exercise?

Would you demonstrate how to do them each way?

Janie

Janie- I have trouble with deadlifts also. Cathe went over deadlifts already: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpoLV...e=channel_page


She explained it well, but I still have trouble. I get the stretch in my hamstrings on the way down and I'm making sure to keep my shoulders back, abs tight, but when I pull back up is when I feel it in my lower back and not my glutes. Maybe others can offer some tips.

Hi Cathe - Have you ever considered including the standard deadlift in any of your videos, as opposed to the stiff-legged DL variety? It's such a great functional movement that hits everything. I hope I'm not speaking out turn.

Thank you for the link, that's exactly what I wanted to know.

Gayle, great suggestion.

I've often wondered why people don't use conventional deadlifts in videos.

well, from looking at the picture, i would think the risk of injury would be much higher doing it like that. it would be hard to keep proper form, i would think.

I have never seen a deadlift done like that! Is it old school?
