How to Dominate the Deadlift: Dedicated Deadlift Day
Deadlifts are one of the best Aesthetic builders there is. It is a full body movement that really works the legs, back, posterior chain, traps, arms as well as the rest of the body.
The deadlift - similar to the squat – is one of the most physically demanding exercises which make them great for putting a great demand on the body and building overall muscle and strength.
So how to dominate deadlifts?
Structure a deadlift day into your routine.
Dedicate an entire hour – or even 2 hours – to nothing but deadlifting. Perform a variety of sets and weights. Some heavy, some light. Add some speeds sets and add some time under tension slow sets. Practice the feel, practice the movement. “Sit” in the lowered, starting position of the movement to get used to the starting portion.
The benefits of a dedicated deadlift day?
The deadlift requires hours and hours worth of practice. Perfect form requires perfect mobility and flexibility - tight hips, flexible calves & hamstrings are amongst the most common preventer of a perfect dead lift. We must also consider the central nervous – the way our brain signals the movement pattern to perform the deadlift as efficiently and 'smoothly' as possible. These two thing should be considered before anything else – especially adding weight to the bar.
