Clean Deadlift Guide

Main Muscle: Hamstrings

  1. Begin standing with a barbell close to your shins. Your feet should be directly under your hips with your feet turned out slightly. Grip the bar with a double overhand grip or hook grip, about shoulder width apart. Squat down to the bar. Your spine should be in full extension, with a back angle that places your shoulders in front of the bar and your back as vertical as possible.
  2. Begin by driving through the floor through the front of your heels. As the bar travels upward, maintain a constant back angle. Flare your knees out to the side to help keep them out of the bar's path.
  3. After the bar crosses the knees, complete the lift by driving the hips into the bar until your hips and knees are extended.

Sep 9, 2013 8:25 AM: This exercise is great and a complete precursor for both deadlifts and any variation of a clean. However, the video / example pictures have him set up in improper form. You should never have your feet at anything more than a 5-10 degree angle. Though wider feet help open your hips up more and get you...+See More

Aug 15, 2013 10:03 AM: Hit my best ever deadlift last night. When I started with my trainer on the 24th July if anybody had told me I would be lifting 120kg (around 20st!) I would have laughed. I was pumped, all my pre-workout supplements were timed bang on. I never realised before just how crucial timing nutrition is.
