- I like to use a staggered-grip placement (strong hand under, weak hand over).
- The bar should be in line with your toes, knees, and shoulders as you line up to lift.
- Power the bar up by driving your feet into the ground and pushing your hips forward.
- The bar should move up in a straight line, close to you at all times.
- When you apply these tips correctly, you will avoid the common mistake of rounding the back during a deadlift.
