Dead Lifts

I have been doing dead-lifts on and off for a while now. However, I realized that my form may not be totally correct.

Can someone post tips for the correct form. Any kind of pictures and videos (if possible) will be great. Also, what are the common mistakes to avoid while doing dead-lifts.


Type “deadlift” - one word - into the search engine over on the left and toggle it to “T-mag” not “T-forums”. Lots of info and articles there. After you read a few of them, come back here and everyone will help with the details.

Check out Mike Robertsons ‘Precision Pulling’ very good article on Dead technique.

Precision Pulling is a great article. Here’e a link to a thread on Sumo deadlifts not too long ago:
