**Many injuries during a deadlift occur AFTER the lift is done**


Common mistakes

Common Mistakes

-Not exhaling during the exercise

-Curved back

-Straightening the legs first, and not moving in fluid motion, which causes the majority of the weight to be lifted by lower back muscles

-Leaning too far forward

-Legs are too far apart


Alternative style

Alternative Style

-Trap Bar Deadlift

considered to be easier than barbell deadlift, since the weight is evenly balanced throughout the exercise
