    Alright guys so I've recently moved house, and have much more space now for my home gym, I've been building my gym equipment up slowly now (and posted the progress in the equipment threads - building Valhalla) and will start keeping track of my workouts once again
    I'm making good progress  and no better way to break in the gym with a wee deadlift workout

    Alright guys so I have just moved house and i have shared a lot of my training videos in the past, in the training log section. However my workouts will hopefully be evolving very soon as I am expanding and building upon everything I had in my own home (have more space)
    For those who want to see how the progress is going and see everything transform day by day whilst I build everything, then I hope you will enjoy the mini series I will share here

    Cheers mate -only hurts because it was two workouts in the same day. Might be old rugby injuries also as I have bust them up a few times when I used to play... but tbh I dont think so just needed more recovery time

    Deadlift 16th July... and now I finally have my new bar and weights I ordered about 3-4 months ago - really nice and long so it makes it easier for me to fit between the weights

    From the side it'll look like this (until the bar reaches Lu's chest).

    My advice is to start in stages before trying something complicated to get the movement right. 
    Start with a snatch pull from the knee:
    Get a grip wide enough so when you're standing the bar is either in or just above the hip crease. I.e a very wide grip. 
    Push your hips back like a Romanian deadlift until the bar is just below the knee. This only requires a very slight bend of the knee. 
    The really important point to remember is the position of the arms - the elbows should point outwards towards the ends of the bar at all times, and the arms should be loose. Do not keep them locked out. 
    From this position push the ground away with your feet and push the hips up and forwards to meet the bar (not slam into it) as if you're forcing the ground away explosively. DO NOT pull the bar up. 
    If done explosively, and the arms are kept loose, your shoulders will move slightly backwards away from the bar and the bar will fly up under momentum in a straight line. Your elbows will bend backwards and the bar will stay close to the body. 
     
    It should look like this, if done correctly. 
    Any questions, let me know.

    Hes doing ok, he sends me his videos of him training in the garage and vice versa so we are still encouraging each other and even louder at home than in the gym lmao. Took him a while to get equipment sorted but this week he finally got a squat rack and bench rack. However his deadlift has gone crazy because that's basically all he could do for a couple of months haha so his back has grown into wings from the photos I've seen lol
     
    Next time we are all at the gym come say hi
