  • DL set up questions

    So i watched this video a while back on how to set up by Chris duffin i always felt that i could lift the bar easier off the floor this way i felt way more tension but the thing is while wedging i would always feel my back round as im trying to get my hips closer to the bar

    so i went back to the ss set up but its as if i cant lift nearly as heavy with it i feel it makes me really fight the weight

    so my question is is the ss 5 setp deadlift suitable for people who deadlift 400 + lbs ?

    And how can i make it better ? What about using quands and hams to pull slack ?

    How to pull more slack and create more tension any help would be appreciated guys and girls

    So?

    Well, you're deadlifting, so fighting the weight is natural.

    Why wouldn't it be? It's basically how Jordan and Austin do it, and they both pull over 600. (I'm shorting Jordan a little for the sake of sentence structure; he pulls over 700)


    And how can i make it better ? What about using quands and hams to pull slack ?
    You don't really have intentional control over your quads and hamstrings like that. You're already using your quads and hamstrings when you deadlift.

    The same way you get to Carnegie Hall: practice. If Chris Duffin's method works for you, then do that. If you want to do it differently, then accept that you're going to take a performance hit until you get better at the new technique.
