Yesterday was deadlift day and this was a common conversation:
”Hey awesome athlete, let’s try to get those knees back and shins vertical.”
”Hey coach, that feels uncomfortable and is really hard for me.”
”Don’t worry athlete, that’s a good thing! It means you are using more muscles and creating more tension to help you with the lift.”

But let’s dissect the actual mechanics and anatomy in the deadlift! Here’s a video that gives tons of visuals to help make it easier to see!
