Safety Measures for Lifting and Dropping a Barbell (Deadlifting)

 

There is a set of rules that must be followed while lifting or dropping weights, and these can go a long way in ensuring that your gymming and weight training sessions are more productive and injury free. If one goes by the set guidelines for lifting and dropping weights (or deadlifting), it really minimizes any chances of suffering from strains or strains, and even the related injuries.

Whenever you lift or weights, you must always try and make sure that these are close to your body.

The first thing one must check when one goes for deadlifting a barbell is one’s stance. Your feet should ideally be at shoulder width and with your heels right under the bar; your body should be very well balanced. Your toes should ideally be pointing slightly outwards. As you squat to lift the barbell, you must bend your knees while keeping the back straight. It is very important to make sure that you bend with your hips and not with your waist.

When lifting the barbell, you must keep your back straight. It is very important to look straight, while keeping the head in line with the back.

Make sure that as you straighten yourself while lifting the barbell, you must lift with your hamstring and not with your arms. Lift while keeping your abs tight, and straighten your legs and shoulders at the same rate.

Let the barbell hang at the hip level. In the standing position, you must have your posture upright and the shoulders pulled back. While bringing the barbell up, the body must be in a straight line. For dropping a barbell, you need to be equally cautious and the same procedure must be followed in reverse.
