You've heard of the power Beard, well now it's all about the 'Power Pony!' Tina demonstrates!

We Heart Deadlifts

The deadlift, it’s one of those movements people love to hate, and even for all of its seeming simplicity, even the smallest changes in your set up can lead to better movement, more muscle engagement, and PR city.

In this video, Kelly breaks it down for us.

“Deadlift set-up is easy: get stiff, load the hips, send the knees forward, pull back, stand up. It's a strategy athletes should use every time they approach the barbell, and it becomes increasingly important when they're tired,” he says.

And with 50 deadlifts and a moderately heavy weight, you will definitely get tired. Take a few minutes to watch this video and listen in on some tips to consider as you approach this workout.

The more we pay attention to the little details in warm up, the more proper movement patterns and bracing become second nature in a workout when we don’t actually have the time or awareness to think about it.

Kelly explains, "I need to be able to walk up to the bar and get stiff and pull without having to make this a very conscious move. And so I want my default patterning to be safe and effective and efficient and the same every time."

WORKOUT FOR TUESDAY

5 Deadlift (265/185)

10 Pushup
