How to Do Deficit Deadlift

The deficit deadlift should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the deficit deadlift.

Beginning
