Improving Positional & Postural Strength w/ The Halting Deadlift

Kurt Halting Deadlift | Barbell Shrugged

There’s a certain type of lifter out there who can squat and jerk weights all day, but can’t seem to pull the barbell from the floor quite the same. Adding a ton of heavy pulls isn’t always the answer, and while unloaded posterior work will help, it doesn’t train the lifter to be in the positions needed to make the lift either. The halting deadlift tackles both of those things, and can be wedged into almost any program. Try these lifts a couple times per week!
