  • Deadlifts are one of the most magical exercises on the planet.
-
They not only will build a massive amount of strength, but they are also the most functional exercise on the planet.
-
How many times in our lives will we have to lift something off the floor?  Probably a ga-zillion fa-fillion.  We do it every single day.
-
Not to mention the level of badassery that you will feel lifting heavy shit off the floor.  Hard to describe, but I can tell you this much:  There is nothing like it, and it will positively affect every other aspect of your life.
-
New to deadlifting or never deadlifted before?  Let’s get you started with a solid set up.
-
There a TON of cues that can fine tune your deadlift, but let’s keep it fairly basic starting off:
-
✅Get your hips behind you.  They should be higher than your knees.
✅Back is flat
✅Pretend you have grapefruits in your armpits and SQUEEZE them!  That is what activating your lats feels like, and you want to keep them activated the entire time.
✅Chest stays tall - think nipples to the wall
✅Abs are braced like someone is going to punch you in the gut
✅Arms stay long with lots of tension
-
The other thing to notice is that my neck is neutral - not craning to look in the mirror.
-
I am using a KB in this picture, but you can also use a DB on it’s end, or if you are ready, use a barbell.
-
From the set up position, you are just going to stand up with your hips fully extended.  And the fun begins!
-
It’s all about creating tension, and keeping that tension throughout the entire movement.
-
Have fun with these and let the baddassery begin

Love You

  • 🔥 Get A Bigger Butt and Legs by @jonashereora
⠀
Most guys try to skip leg-day or get it over with as quickly as possible, by ignoring big parts of their legs, mainly because they think it's boring and tiring to train something that isn't as "visual" as the upper body.
⠀
🐥You don't want to do that. If you're training for visuals, you want your legs to match your upper body, or you'll end up as a chicken-leg-guy.
⠀
And to get a well-rounded leg physique, you don't want to jump onto your quadriceps exercises only, which happens to some people. Below is a guide for you to create a big and strong lower body!
⠀
♦️ So, to get a well-rounded leg day, aim for 1-2 exercises per muscle group of the 4 above. If you're training for muscle growth, you can aim for 2-6 sets per exercise and 6-15 reps.
⠀
For Strength, you can go for 2-6 sets per exercise and 2-6 reps.
⠀
🔑 Remember, you want to keep progressively overload by, for example, increasing the weight.
⠀
When, you ask?
⠀
A good guide is, if you're doing 3 sets of 10 reps; and on your last set, you can perform 12 reps, then you can increase the weight by 2-10%.

  • HIPS SHOOTING UP EARLY IN THE DEADLIFT?
-
What’s up, Achievers?! @jasonlpak here and today we’re talking about some drills you can use if you notice that your hips are rising up early as soon as you lift the bar off the floor for a deadlift. The reason why we don’t want to see this pulling pattern is because it takes your legs out of the movement, and transfers the stress to your back musculature - making for really inefficient technique.
-
A concept that we really like to employ is to visualize “wedging” yourself between the barbell and the floor rather than just pulling the bar up off the floor. When you wedge, start by having your hips in a high position. From there, you want to think about pulling up on the barbell and simultaneously lowering your hips down to your normal starting height. Perform this really slowly and feel more and more tension build up and the bar *almost* lifting up off the floor.
-
This places you in a much better position from a leverage standpoint to lift the bar off the floor because it keeps your legs under you the whole time.
-
Try these drills out and pick one or do all of them in succession before your next deadlift day and let us know how it goes. Make sure you video your attempts because it won’t be perfect right away - you’ll have to practice this for a few weeks to really dial it down!
-
We hope this post helped you out! High fives and positive vibes! 🖐🤗

  • 5x5 type programs have been very popular for beginner to intermediate level lifters 💯⁣
⁣
But have you ever wondered why 5’s ?? 🤔⁣
⁣
Well 5 reps sits right in the middle of the maximal strength and hypertrophy guidelines 💡⁣
⁣
Maximal Strength is best developed and displayed through single repetition efforts (1 rep) 🏋️‍♂️ ⁣
⁣
Whereas it’s often suggested that Hypertrophy (muscle building) is best developed in the 8-12 rep range (10 reps being the median) 💪⁣
⁣
Therefore 5 reps is a great prescription to develop both do these training qualities simultaneously (as it’s the middle dose) 🧪 ⁣
⁣
Does that mean it’s a good place to start ??⁣
Yes.⁣
⁣
Does that mean it’s the best ?? ⁣
No. ⁣
⁣
Remember that if 5 reps is an “in-between” level for maximal strength and hypertrophy .. this makes it a GENERAL training prescription (meaning that it’s NOT specific) ⁣
⁣
As you become more advanced or more SPECIFIC towards your training objectives .. then you will have to utilise various rep ranges within your training to ensure that you are able to make long term progress 🙏⁣
⁣
So then how many reps is best ??⁣
All of them ... at the right times.⁣

  • Simple but very important piece of information about something that I see so many people doing incorrectly everyday in the gym.

Hyper extension of the back during a deadlift massively increases the pressure on the lower lumbar spine which will inevitably lead to significant injury with time and increased load.

You will hear this time and time again but PRACTICE PROPER FORM and master the biomechanics of each exercise to ensure that you train safely and effectively. By @nattyknowledge

  • Deadlifting, what do we train it for ???⠀
⠀
Why do we train dead lift ?? ⠀
First off let’s have a brief history of the dead lift, where it came from and how it got it’s name.⠀
⠀
It came from Roman times, one of many things the great Romans gave today’s society.⠀
After a battle they would have to dispose of their dead soldiers, found that over time lifting the dead bodies many where getting back injuries so one discovered that if more than one person lifted the body using their legs and not their backs it was done with less injuries and more effective.⠀
Hence the name dead lift as you are lifting a dead weight off the floor.⠀
⠀
I have seen this one quite a few times in the gym, most with next to perfect form but when they are finished and go to put the weight back they don’t deadlift it..... they pick it up again but using their back hunched over ??????⠀
⠀
Again I ask why do we train it ? Surely not just too look good on social media ? ⠀
We use this movement in our everyday lives and do not realise it especially parents with young children, by squatting and tightening the core muscles and using the legs lifting things off the floor becomes more pain free and less chance of injuring your back, it’s part of functional training which mean you can translate this movement to everyday life.⠀
⠀
So when you are next in the gym training dead lift, remember why we use it and put your weights away safely 💪

  • With the weekend here, comes another strength training day. So deadlifts is the way to go!

Pulled 385lb for 5x5 for this workout. 5x5 is my preference when it comes to strength training as this method is reasonable for volume and intensity.

  • Missed a day or two at the gym? Here’s what NOT to do!👇
-
We all face a time in our lives when something comes up and you can’t make it to the gym.
-
I just had 3 consecutive 15 hour days at work and I missed 2 scheduled workouts!
-
What’s tempting to do is to GO ALL OUT in that first session back in the gym to makeup for lost time, but this is the OPPOSITE of what you want to do.
-
When you take time off, even if it’s just a couple days, here’s some symptoms you’ll probably notice:
*
Your muscles will look flatter (since they haven’t contracted hard recently), but don’t worry, you won’t lose non-negligible muscle mass!
*
Strength will go down slightly for your main exercises (CNS adaptation happens really quickly, but it goes both ways)
*
The weights might feel extra heavy (grip strength is the first thing to diminish)
*
You might feel a bit groggy, lack focus, and technique might be a little bit off.
*
Here’s the one benefit: Your body becomes re-sensitized to training stimulus.
👇
This means that minimal stimulus will give you the same anabolic response as a lot of stimulus!
-
Rather than overloading your body with extra volume (and probably poorer technique on your exercises), which increases the risk of injury and takes longer to recover from....
-
Do LESS volume than usual to get back into it. Just make sure it’s high quality!
-
After the first workout, you’ll probably be extra sore (this may signify your oncoming adaptation to novel stimulus), but everything else will begin to fall back into place!
-
Does anyone have any other tips for getting back into it??

One of the big things that I go over with people when coaching the deadlift is the setup
-
Properly setting up will allow you to lift the most weight that you can, as it will put you in the most biomechanically advantageous position possible 🤓
-
A big part of proper deadlift setup is engaging your lats
-
Your lats connect to a band of connective tissue in your low back called the thoracolumbar fascia 🤔
-
When you set your lats, it tensions that tissue, which can aid in keeping your low back rigid during the lift, possibly improving your ability to pull big weights from the floor 🏋️‍♀️
-
That being said, not setting your lats and having some flexion in your spine during a deadlift 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 automatically mean you're going to hurt yourself ❌
-
If you watch anyone pull near a true 1RM, even elite level lifters, you're going to see some flexion 😱
-
It's all a matter of whether or not you've trained your back to tolerate these forces when they happen! 💪
-
Next time you setup to deadlift, consciously set your lats, like I do in this video, to ensure you're setting yourself up for success!

MUSCLE SORENESS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I get so many messages from you guys freaking out that you are no longer getting sore from your workouts and thinking that your workouts have become ineffective. Don’t worry, you don’t have to cry just because you’re not getting sore. Soreness actually isn’t a very good indication of an effective workout.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Muscle soreness is typically caused by training the muscles in a way they are not used to. As you perform an exercise more often, you will experience less soreness. That’s why you get extremely sore when you come back to the gym after some time off or when you try a new exercise. If soreness was really such a strong indication of workout effectiveness, you’d be better off only training every other week so that you’d get very sore every time but I’m pretty sure all of you would agree that taking every other week off wouldn’t be the smartest idea. Focus on progressive overload (getting stronger over time), eating in a small caloric surplus, and you’ll be making progress. Soreness is cool because it feels like you had a great workout but it’s really not very reliable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    MUSCLE SORENESS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I get so many messages from you guys freaking out that you are no longer getting sore from your workouts and thinking that your workouts have become ineffective. Don’t worry, you don’t have to cry just because you’re not getting sore. Soreness actually isn’t a very good indication of an effective workout.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Muscle soreness is typically caused by training the muscles in a way they are not used to. As you perform an exercise more often, you will experience less soreness. That’s why you get extremely sore when you come back to the gym after some time off or when you try a new exercise. If soreness was really such a strong indication of workout effectiveness, you’d be better off only training every other week so that you’d get very sore every time but I’m pretty sure all of you would agree that taking every other week off wouldn’t be the smartest idea. Focus on progressive overload (getting stronger over time), eating in a small caloric surplus, and you’ll be making progress. Soreness is cool because it feels like you had a great workout but it’s really not very reliable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 10/20/19 - Week 6 final day of cycle for 531 is Squat/Deadlifts are big movements.

Squats

Bar - 10
95 - 5
115 - 5
135-5
145-5
155-3

175-5
195-3
205-1+ and wanted 5 but I felt could hit even deeper so added another set and nailed it.  Done!

Extra Set of Work 150x10, good depth. Done.

Secondary Movement

Deadlifts 5x10, 225, +5

Go sumo to change up and this is usually deadly.  No joke but again stronger when first did these with less weight.  Loved last set. Filmed first and last.

3rd Movement - melody - 5 rounds, 1 min break

Farmers Walks - 155

Kettle Bell swings tight - 12, 25lbs

Ab Straps - 10 reps

This is the end of the cycle and yes feel stronger but suppose to be a reload week now.  Not sure will do or will check 1rm on major lifts or will just continue and do jokers in the coming days.  Let’s see, need check my numbers first compared to when started.

  • Unilateral or one side training is a great way to develop your trunk stability. Resistance band tension is increasing as I stand up which builds a stronger trunk and core.
