In the past I have not done much deadlifting. Heck until I started reading at this site I never deadlifted. Now I realize that it is an important lift and is incorporated into my training sessions. Of course since I never did it before I needed to not only learn how to deadlift but how to deadlift right. This site has provided me with a wealth of information, but recently I read about a T-Nation lifter that was given trouble at his gym for lifting barefoot.
I’d heard about deadlifting barefoot but I’ve never been told why people do it. Does it help form? Prevent injury? Or is it just for comfort? I’d just like to know and of course if it is the better way to deadlift I’ll start doing it.
