The Deadlift is a POSTERIOR CHAIN exercise. This means your hamstrings and glutes should be screaming. All too often we watch athletes move and they load their quadriceps and knees for EVERYTHING.
No wonder your knees hurt…If you try this with no weight and have uncomfortable tension in your hammies, GOOD! If you then pick up a barbell and DON’T have that tension, that is BAD and you’re moving WRONG.
Get comfortable being uncomfortable. Keep the weight low and the reps high to retrain the movement until you no longer have to think about it.
