Here's how deadlifts should be performed: * With your feet shoulder-width apart, stand with your shins touching a loaded barbell placed on the floor. * Bend your knees and squat down, grasping the bar with an overhand grip just outside your legs. Using a staggered grip (one hand pronated, the other supinated), however, will actually allow you to lift more weight. * Arch your back and try to keep it as straight as possible during the lift to minimize stress on the lower back. * Keeping your arms straight, drive through the floor with your feet as you pull up on the bar, keeping your head straight and back tight.
