I “lifted weights” for several years, but I’m just now starting to squat and deadlift. With the deadlift, I have some questions about the execution of the movement. At first, I was basically locking my arms and just lifting the bar with my legs and the hip hinge/thrust. Now, I am “pulling” the weight with a slight bent over row as the weight is being brought up to assist my legs and hips. Is this right?
The reason I ask is that you can feel it in your rear delts, upper back and traps. Or is that the goal?
Forgive my ignorance. Too many curls in the squat rack I guess.
