Many of you that have performed deadlifts know that lifting the weight is only half the battle. You still have to set it down. In coaching the deadlift, I have found that most athletes find it more challenging to bring the weight down correctly as compared to just lifting the weight. In this great article found in the CrossFit Journal , you’ll find some great instruction on how to perform the deadlift correctly. While reading the article, I want you to remember that it is always way more important to learn proper technique and then apply that technique to lighter weight first. ”QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY”!
