Learning to Deadlift Part 1 – Hip Extension

Chuck Vogelpohl deadlifting

This week’s post is a video post focusing on showing a beginner how to recruit the glutes and hamstrings, which is essential both from a performance standpoint and an injury-prevention standpoint.  It helps to have access to a glute/ham raise but can be done without if you’re creative enough.

Part 2 will go through the basics of setting up for the deadlift, including a host of common mistakes beginners (and sometimes even experienced trainees) tend to make.
