Cristi's Deadlift Training

Per Marty Gallagher's advice, we have been working on Cristi sitting back and "squatting the weight" when she deadlifts.  She "sits back like she's gonna fall back", and she also tells me that she has NO lower back soreness like she used to have when she leaned over the bar more.

She is in total control of the weight. This slow eccentric loading is putting slabs of muscle on her back.

Music is Black Label Society. Her thermal is Black Label Society also.  445x6


All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a year...it's for life. Whether its training or your family or your job...it doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
