Tuesday: day off from training but I did golf 18 holes. ;-)
Prep - ASLR, Brettzel, Z foot drills
Neupert Program Week 3 - Day 2
Today might be a day off but I'm not sure yet. I purchased an old fashioned push mower for the yard and it is time to mow again and that turns into a decent "workout". So we will see what the day brings.
The importance of the Deadlift
A proper Deadlift sets the stage for the proper KB Swing so it is an essential movement to have in your training. I wrote an article on programming for the deadlift here - DL Programming
But it assumes that you have good form for taking on the programs provided so if you need help with that Secrets of Core Training - The Backside (as noted in the article) will help you with screening and corrections to get you in good position for the Deadlift.
A quick verbal cue that I have been using:
"In a squat the hips go down but in the Deadlift the hips go back."
I'll even emphasize this more by saying that the hips go back and up.
Too many people turn their DL into a squat and in that position your back ends up the fulcrum but if you sit the hips back (and "up") then your hips will be the fulcrum.
More to come on this....
