For this video, I will be demonstrating the different kinds of energy used during a Trap Bar Deadlift with 405 LBS. (This is my first try ever with this weight)
Set Phase: I prepare my for the weight being lifted. This is me producing my potential energy so that I can drive the weight up and pick it up. Therefore I’m preparing 405+ LBS of force to move this weight.
1). Toes right under bar
2). Hands outside of knees
3). Sit back on heels
4). Chest up and back straight
Action Phase: I drive the weight straight up utilizing my hips and knees in order to have correct form without hurting myself. The energy used at this point is kinetic energy because I am using 405+ LBS to drive the weight straight up.
1). Chest up and back straight
2). Drive through heels (DO NOT RISE UP WITH TOES!!!!!)
3). Straighten knees
4). Breathe out, do not hold breath!
