Resetting your reps is easy to implement and works incredibly well for finding your optimal deadlift technique.
It prevents you from bouncing your reps and allows you to perform the movement from a “dead” position like the competition lift, allowing you to find your most powerful, explosive deadlift technique.
Let’s say you’re doing a 5X5 deadlift:
No reset = 5X you practice your setup.
With reset = 25X you practice your setup.
This is a great way to improve your deadlift without changing anything in your programming.
What’s optimal technique may vary slightly person-to-person. Resetting your reps is easy to implement and works incredibly well for finding your optimal deadlift technique.
