020816 "How To Deadlift like a Gangster"

Being From Sacramento, I had the privilege of working with one of the best Powerlifters on the Planet, Mark Bell. Technique is everything and even though we CrossFitters may look a the Press, Bench, and Deadlift as merely simple lifts... There is a ton to know about moving MASSIVE weight Correctly!. Today is a deadlift day and since we in CrossFit like to test our skills under duress, form is everything when we are tired and not at 100%.

Therefore, it is very important to listen to the cues given and find a way to make your body and mind work together and accomplish the goal. Have a watch and enjoy.
