Managing your center of mass is a foundational element of what is good technique, as myself and Brad Couillard have discussed in videos and presentations. And even lifters with seemingly “good technique” and elite strength struggle at times with managing their center of mass. One way in which that presents itself in the deadlift is through over-wedging, meaning that a lifter continues to wedge past their center of mass, resulting in some form of forward bias. Some lifters are fairly unaffected by slight deviations in center of mass due to over wedging, while others have a markedly reduced force output when over wedging occurs. In my latest YouTube video, I take a look at the 6 common mistakes people make that result in over wedging on the deadlift. For each mistake, I cover why it can be an issue for some (and for others no issue) and how to fix the mistake if it is leading to decreased strength output for you. I also take a look at some general tips that help to overcome most over wedging issues. And to kick off the video, I give a full introduction of our new educational platform Powerlifting Now, as registration is live!
