Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
The weather is beautiful here today in Boston, so I’m going to head to the beach.
Before I head out, let’s get caught up on all the awesome fitness info from the past week.
A simple way to engage your lats in the deadlift is to setup with your coach or lifting partner standing behind you. When you’re in the bottom position, have them tap on your lats. They’ll turn on and you’ll feel yourself create tension to the bar (pulling the slack out). This will give you a smooth transition off the floor and allow you to keep the bar close to your body through the lift. @syattfitness #powerlifting #squat #bench #deadlift #stronger
I’ve started my training block for a powerlifting meet in October. I’m going to compete in deadlift only. This was deadlift training from Week 1 Day 1. Everything felt fast and good.
