Zach Homol – @ZachHomolPower

The Deadlift is one of the most practical movements that can be done in the weight room. In my opinion, the ultimate display of strength and sheer will power of lifter. There are two (2) Deadlift Variations that you will see in competition: Sumo and Conventional. Choosing which variation is best for you can be determined by what position you are strongest in and best accommodates your leverages. 

The Conventional Deadlift is the more popular of the 2 variations and is the typical stance you will see in the majority of your local gyms. The movement doesn’t seem so complex, simply reach down, pick the bar off of the ground until your knees and hips are in the locked out position with your shoulders behind the bar. Simple enough? 

In this video I explain the most practical, efficient and effective stance to set up in on the conventional deadlift.
