Becoming Unapologetically Powerful: Shoulder and Hip Position for the Deadliftby Jennifer Blake
The deadlift, in my opinion, is the most serious of the three competition lifts: It often has the highest payoff in terms of pounds lifted—there are a few notable exceptions to this rule—and because of that, it’s well worth your time to find your strongest set-up.
As my co-coach and lifting pard, Jen Sinkler, says, “No matter what weight is on the bar, pretend you’re lifting a million pounds. You’d brace for that shit, right?”
I’ve never met a single lifter who didn’t want a big deadlift, and implementing the two tips in this video will help get you there safely.
One additional tip not stated in the video: Many people have no idea what their deadlift set-up looks like, and it may feel like you’re already implementing these tips. It’s extremely helpful to film your deadlift from start to finish to see what you’ve got going on so you can adjust what may need adjusting.

Oh, hey! You like to talk about lifting weights? Yep, me too, and that’s exactly why I’ve created the Unapologetically Powerful Big 3 School, an exclusive ecourse written with the sole intention of improving your squat, bench press, and deadlift.
Because we don’t like to just talk, we want to walk the walk, too.
The Unapologetically Powerful Big 3 School ecourse is where I give you the information you need to build a strong foundation in the three powerlifts, and have a blast while doing it (because as I like to say, strong is so, so fun!). The course is free and my goal is for you to go forth and crush upon completion.
