A Tool for the Toolbox

An awesome aspect about being a strength coach is you get to watch great coaches do what they do best and at the same time be taught by them yourself.  You have the pleasure of learning and then applying this knowledge gained to your athletes and you alike.  The following deadlift refinement technique is not something I made up; again it’s something that I learned from the awesome coaches I’ve worked with and something I’ve been able to utilize with the athletes and my own training.  Try this to fix up your deadlift technique…  The volume is a little low for some reason (my apologies); better than last time though…

A few supplementary notes…

  • This is not something to go super heavy on.  This is a tool to refine your deadlift technique.
  • Keep the bar weight light but use bumper plates; as I mentioned in the video it was only 95lbs of bar weight.
  • As far as band tension goes you shouldn’t be using anything more than a mini band.
  • Use this during your warm-up or during your off days as a way to improve your form.


Also the below video is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for some motivation before going to train.  The video is of Jeremy Frey, a strength coach and powerlifter from EliteFTS.  This guy is ridiculously smart when it comes to training and STRONG!
