DEADLIFT MINDSET

THE LIFT BEGINS BEFORE YOU EVEN TOUCH THE BAR. Clear your mind of can't- embrace a calm intensity and walk up to the bar envisioning the bar moving off the ground. 

  1. There are three phases to the deadlift: the pre-lift mindset, the approach/set-up, and the actual lift.
  2. The harder you squeeze the bar, the more you cue your nervous system.
  3. Once you approach the bar, you've got to have a ritual, a process, or an outline.
  4. Strength is a skill. Every time you approach the lift, you should be robotic.
  5. After you've done all the prep work, all you have to do is stand up.
