3 Common Barbell Deadlift Positioning Errors

The Barbell Deadlift is arguably the most complete exercise out there. Performed correctly, this exercise can be suitable for everyone, regardless of age, strength or training goals.

The Barbell Deadlift employs multiple large groups of muscles throughout the body, particularly through what's generally termed the 'posterior chain' which comprises the hamstrings, glutes and lower back.

It's a shame, therefore, that many of us aren't getting the most from our Deadlift sets due to poor technical execution.

Here we explore 3 common positioning errors that I see every day. Master these 3 areas and you can be sure that your start position for this incredibly effective exercise is on point.
