When you miss a deadlift, do you fail near the floor? If so, try this.

Paused Deadlift

The value in this exercise isn't so much that it makes an exercise hard, but that it forces you to:

  1. Better engage your lats to provide more stability to the spine.
  2. Learn to keep the bar close to the body and not allow it to get away.
  3. Build explosiveness through a sticking point.

It's the first two that are more important because they address a more important issue... a technique weakness!
