Here’s a great post by @achievefitnessboston on the deadlift! ??? BAR ALIGNMENT FOR DIFFERENT DEADLIFT VARIATIONS! – What’s up Achievers?! @laurenpak22 here and today we’re talking bar alignment! When it comes to deadlifts, we don’t think there is necessarily a one-size-fits all variation or stance! We also don’t believe there’s a one-size-fits all body angle for each deadlift variation. That’s because everyone has different limb lengths and injury histories that may impact the way they look at the bottom of a deadlift! – The one thing that we feel IS universal when it comes to deadlifts is the alignment of the bar in regards to your shoulder blades/armpits in the bottom position! No matter which deadlift variation you’re performing, or what your personal structure is, the safest way to set up for a deadlift is to align your shoulder blades/armpits directly over the bar cap. – You can see in these photos that my overall alignment and angles are different from variation to variation, but no matter which one I’m doing, my armpits are aligned over the bar. Getting into this position at the bottom is going to help set you up for the most efficient bar path, and will prevent you from over-utilizing your lower back to perform the lift! _ ?If you found this helpful, please share or tag a friend ??

TO ARCH OR NOT TO ARCH -That is the question _________________________________________ There seems to be a big misunderstanding about the use of the arch when executing the bench press. I’ve seen an overwhelming amount of guys giving unwanted and highly misinformed advice to female lifters in particular about arching their back in the bench press, claiming that this technique will “snap their backs” or “break their necks”, or even saying that this technique is “like cheating”. In this post I’ll talk about basic biomechanics, anatomy of the shoulder and the purpose of arching in the bench press, based on FACTS and EVIDENCE. _______________________________________ Biomechanics- Can you move more weight doing a decline bench press? If so, this is because of the muscle fiber alignment of the pecs (angle of pennation), arching your UPPER back in a bench press, promotes better recruitment of the lower fibers of the pectoralis major, similar to the decline bench, which means that a larger portion of your chest muscle fibers will be activated to produce force. _______________________________________ Anatomy- Every heard of the term closed pack position? This refers to the position of most joint congruency and ligamentous stability. By arching your UPPER back and retracting your scapulae back together, you’re now placing your glenohumeral joint in a fully abducted and externally rotated position. This position of the humerus is a safer and much more stable to push from than if your upper back was flat against the bench. _______________________________________ The true question is WHY are you benching? If your goal is shoulder health and you are too worried about getting hurt, then stay away from heavy benching. If your goal is to maximize your athletic potential AND stay healthy, follow my previous advice. . Written by @steficohen, drawing by @pheasyque. . BOOKMARK THIS FOR THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE TELLS YOU “ARCHING IS DANGEROUS”
