Exercise Demo: Deadlift Posted October 12th, 2013 by Admin . 6 Comments Laurie Laing says: May 28, 2019 at 6:05 pm Alternative to the dead lift? I have a lower back issue and cannot do these. Thank you! Log in to reply teresalordy says: May 30, 2019 at 7:55 am Why do you let the weights go all the way to the floor. Also what is the reason for the grip, one hand one way the other the other way?

Setting it down allows you to set up again and use proper form when standing. The alternate grip helps prevent your hands from slipping and makes you feel more secure on the bar.
