Re: Trap Bar DeadLift Form

Google hip hinge for lifting. You want to load the hamstrings with a hip hinge and then drive your feet into the ground. If you start the lift by bending your knees first you'll lean too far forward and get out of position.
Now this sounds like some of the most sound advice I've gotten. In all the answers I've ever received about DeadLifts.
I went to Google as advised. (Work and family safe)

The above example I think shows a very simple way for me to understand what I'm suppose to be doing.

Next Saturday I will try this and we will see now it go's.
Yes and we will increase the weight in each set up, just a little each week.
