So I have agreed to “teach” one of my male friends how to train to the best of my ability. Half hour into our first session we realize he cannot deadlift for shit. I have always had pretty decent mobility, even before I began training.
I wanted to get some input on what you guys think he should do? Or more specifically, what I should do in order to help him? When I mean he can’t deadlift, I mean, he can’t keep his knees bent and back arched simontaneously after he passes around 160 degrees.
I am going to try to be specific, and possibly fuck it up, but I believe his thoracic spine is normally in severe flexion, and it kind of like, overpowered his lumbar curve.
Basically I’d like input on how to gain mobility in areas which are needed in the deadlift.
