Thursday Jerks and Deads find their way to Friday...
Same workout, same rules. Different people. See previous post. Watch and read information below to learn more.
- "Diane" Video -perfect Deadlift form at high intensity
- Deadlifter Looking for Critique -lifts his butt first, needs a bigger chest, further back on heels. "Squeeze the weight off the floor."
- 57 yr. old CF Women -great form. The blonde would NEVER be able to lift that without it.
- Horrible Form Deadlift -one last example, just so we know what NOT to do! Grin.
Study these movements. Look at them in people performing them well. Emulate that movement in yourself. Practice form, perfect that form, then add loads. Be patient with yourself. These are incredibly functional, necessary movements for real life.
Train your weaknesses, train the things you dislike the most. Make them your strengths. You might be surprised. You might just end up liking them.
There are 2 variations on the landing stance of the jerk. Buck performs with the Push Jerk's linear position, Tara demonstrates the Split Jerk position. Both are acceptable, both are accepted in competition.
