I assume that this has been covered a million times in the past however, due to a lack of good information on the internet through searches so far, and a lack of experienced deadlifters to talk to in person on form, could we please revise the correct principles for a safe and effective deadlift.
I was at the gym before and I met a guy that was doing some OK weight with deads and he seemed to think that I had made some mistakes in my technique.
However, I was not entirely convinced that he was doing it correctly either.
I have started to get into the 250 - 300 lbs range and I dont want to go any further until I am sure that I have the right form which wont ruin my back.
What are the most important things to pay attention to ?
