1 Top Secret Tip To Deadlift More Weight!

Posted by:

There are quite a few different tips and cues for the deadlift exercise and its many variations. The deadlift happens to be my favorite exercise these days. The ability to lift the most weight compared to other lifts, the total body effort taken to pull the bar from the floor, the focus, etc…

Assuming you do not have any issues with your feet, or any lower body conditions…One tip that should help boost everyones¬†deadlifting total would be to simply lift without shoes on, thats it. Shoes add an inch or two to your height and without the shoes you do not have to lift the bar as high and you’re starting your lift at a lower position.

This can be an ego boost for some but simply pushing past a plateau it can help you by handling more weight, if grip strength is an issue the only way to truly improve grip strength while holding super heavy weight, is to practice holding super heavy weight.

Straps will help, but try to go as heavy as possible without straps to get your grip strength improved.

This is just one tip of many for the deadlift, and form should always be perfected before you go trying to lift as much weight as possible.
