✖️ Sharpen your Deadlift!!
👉🏽 Paused Deadlifts aim to:
– Increase neural drive in that particular position
– Increase the time under tension at the most difficult part of the lift
– Improve strength in that particular position
– Sharpen technique where we usually would compensate due to lack of either co-ordination or strength
👉🏽 Goal is the extend the knee and the hip AT THE SAME TIME! No hips up first – load them quads!
👉🏽 Think of a deadlift more as a pushing movement than a pulling movement. Essentially a leg press into the floor.
👉🏽 Peel weight back when incorporating the pause. I’d start with 5 x 5 reps with 2 second pause mid shin to 3/4 shin height. Should feel quads working hard in the paused position!
