Some people may see deadlifts as a simple exercise that doesn't need much prep in order to execute correctly, but if we don't warm up and prep for them enough, there can be plateaus and/or injuries down the road. In this video we go over not only pre deadlift mobility drills to warm up your muscles and movement patterns, but we also provide several post deadlift stretches that will help aid your recovery after your session. Add the mobility exercises to your current pre deadlift ritual, and hit the stretches post, along with any other areas you felt were utilized during your workout.

 

Pre deadlift mobility drills:

Dead bug - Warm up the midline while practicing moving our limbs and keeping the spine neutral at the same time

Glute bridge march - Get the glutes turned on as well as the hip flexors

Romanian deadlift - Increase hamstring mobility

 

Post deadlift stretches:

Upright lunge - Lengthen the hip flexor, usually a big cause for lower back stiffness when deadlifting

Half front split - A great hamstring stretch and a starting point for anyone who wants to work on a full split

Pigeon - Can be done on the floor or box

Child's pose - Let the back round and vertebrae open up
