The MOST Common Deadlift Mistake Women Make (And How to Fix It)

by Jordan Syatt March 21, 2016

I chose this as the feature picture — not because she has good technique — but because she’s making the same deadlift mistake I outline in today’s video. 

She’s actually making several mistakes (shoulders way too far back, hips too low, forgot to put on clothes before going to the gym, etc) but those are topics for a different day.

Today we’re focusing on one mistake. A big one. Arguably the most common deadlifting mistake I see among women — even advanced — lifters.

I’ll explain everything in the video so make sure you watch it from start to finish (don’t skip around or I promise you’ll miss a big piece of the puzzle) but this mistake, if not addressed, will dramatically increase your risk of lower back pain/injury and definitively keep you from hitting big personal records. 

It’s a simple fix in theory but, practically, it’s harder to ‘stick.’ So pay attention. Listen closely. And watch the video the whole way through. 

If you have any questions post ’em in the comments section and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
