In this clip, I briefly go through an explanation of proper technique for conventional, romanian and sumo deadlifts. I made this for a client who wanted to show her husband proper deadlift form. While I could get way more in depth, this is a pretty good explanation and demonstration of these major deadlift variations. If you don't know, I am pretty much a deadlift fanatic. It is my favorite and best lift, and probably my favorite thing to do in life. (Just kidding, but not really :) The deadlift and its variations is something that should be included in every exercise program at some point. Not only does it train nearly every major muscle in the body but also develops movement coordination and specific strength that will carry over to almost every sporting and daily activity. Enjoy!
I also want to share with you a link to Patrick Ward's site. I have never met Patrick but have been following his blog for awhile now. He is a great and very knowledgeable strength coach and massage therapist and actually was one of the inspirations for me to make the final decision to get into massage therapy school. This is a link to a recent blog he did that is a case study on a runner with knee pain. He goes through his assessment, thought process and treatment plan for the client. He has done a couple of other case studies as well that are also very good. Its really good stuff so be sure to check it out. I definitely would like to do something similar in the future on my blog.
