DEADLIFT 🆚 SQUAT
I see so many people not quite grasping the proper deadlift technique, I’m not judging... I also used to do this! SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP! .
A deadlift is predominately a hip hinge movement. Your knees do bend but the biggest range of motion comes from the flexion of the hips. In other words you push your bum backwards as you lower the weight rather than just dropping your hips downwards as you do in a squat.
A squat does require hip hinging but the biggest range of motion is in the knees meaning your bum is lowered in the movement rather than pushed backwards.
They are VERY similar exercises so it’s easy to get confused. It’s taken me a long time to realise this myself. Neither of these exercises are wrong in terms of form but just remember if you are doing it how I am in the second video then this is showing more characteristics of a SQUAT rather than a DEADLIFT 🙌🏻
Here are two different home workouts for you ! I made this post yesterday on @its_gymtime but I guess you want to know that too (all the others who did not follow my other page) ! You should do one of the home workouts then you’re doing a rest day and then you’re doing the other home workout ! Looks like this : A rest B rest A rest B rest .... If this helped you you can follow me for more infos @rob_its_gymtime 😊💪🏻🔥
