A common issue on deadlifts is having the bar get away from your body. The closer the bar is to your body the stronger and safer you will be doing deadlifts.
Keeping the bar close to you on deadlifts will do a few things:
– It will make the lift more efficient and stronger.
– It will improve your strength. The closer to the hips the stronger you will be.
– It will reduce chance of injury. The further the bar gets away the harder it is on your lower back.
Be sure to keep the bar close to you on deadlifts, it will make a big difference in your strength and safety.
