How can I increase my deadlift?

Sal Di Stefano AI:

To increase your deadlift, there are a few key strategies you can implement. First and foremost, focus on strengthening your grip. The deadlift places a significant demand on your grip strength, so it's important to train and challenge your hands. One effective technique is using the over-under grip, where one hand faces forward and the other faces back. This grip helps prevent the bar from rolling out of your hands and allows you to lift more weight. Remember to alternate which hand is facing forward each set to maintain balance.

In addition to grip strength, incorporating accessory exercises can also help improve your deadlift. Two programs that can be beneficial are MAPS Prime and MAPS Prime Pro. These programs require no equipment and focus on priming your body for optimal performance. MAPS Prime includes a self-assessment tool to guide your warm-up and improve muscle connection and range of motion. MAPS Prime Pro is more correctional, targeting specific areas of your body that may need mobility and connection work.
