In addition to performing conventional deadlifts (full), and rack pulls, I was wondering how beneficial deficit deadlifts are to improving the overall weight?
When it comes to my form, my sticking point is just pass the knees (i.e the hip extension part). However, I have no issues with my rack deadlifts.
So I was wondering if my initial drive out of the bottom was causing my body to fatigue before the lock out, thus causing the sticking point.
Knowing that deficits put you at a mechanical disadvantage and increases the range of motion, thus increasing the flexibility required. I was also wondering (after only really 6/7 months powerlifting training) whether it would premature for me to start doing these variations so soon.
My deadlift PR is 440lbs (200kg).
