Lowering Deadlifts, KBs & More 7s
Tuesday this week is deadlift day. I’ve seen some great lifts so far today, and I’ve seen some nightmarish lowering of the bar. Does your back hurt when you lower the bar? Do you prefer to drop the bar and make lots of noise so that you don’t have to contend with lowering the bar?
We talk a LOT about midline stability, and lowering the bar from a deadlift requires it as well. In order to lift that bar you reach the sternum down toward the belly, tighten the gluts, and take a big breath while lifting your chest. IN ORDER TO LOWER THE BAR YOU DO THE SAME THING! Make sure the belly is tight and reach that butt out and roll that bar back down your legs, keeping your chest up. Rule of thumb: If your back hurts lowering the bar, you are doing something wrong.
KB work, intro snatch and TGU, optional other work of coaches choice.
