Fraser hitting a new personal best of 170kg x 2 on deadlifts

Fraser hitting a new personal best of 170kg x 2 on deadlifts. Watching this video it’s clear that he had more in the tank as well!

Here’s three simple points to improve your deadlift technique.

  1. In the set up, and throughout the rep, ensure your knees are above or behind the bar, never in front of the bar. This will ensure optimal posterior chain (flutes and hamstrings) recruitment and minimise pressure on the lower back.
  2. In the set up and throughout the rep, ensure your head and neck stays in a neutral position. Your head should follow your spine, so looking slightly down at the start of the rep, with the head following the body up as you lift. A huge mistake people make is looking up at the start of the lift.
  3. Reset between reps. Make sure you completely lower the bar and reset your position each rep. This will help ensure correct technique as you fatigue through set. I usually tell clients to think about a set of five reps as five sets of one with a second or two between reps. It’s called a deadlift not a bounce lift, you should lift the weight from dead each rep.
