Have you heard the cue, “Patience!”
Have you been told you’re getting, “behind the bar,” or “need to stay over the bar?”
If so, than this one deadlift variation is going to be huge for you!
As we move through the snatch and the clean. We pass the knee. If we’re unfamiliar with this position, weak in this position or off balance in this position than bad things are going to happen!
Watch the video above to see this in action vs. just reading about it.
I’m always amazed by how many athletes don’t realize they’re not strong in this position. Even if you have a great traditional deadlift you’ll be surprised by how this will feel when you hit this position.
