Zercher Deadlift

Zercher Deadlift

Put your deadlifting prowess to the test with this old-time strongman variation.

How To Do It: The Move

  1. Approach the bar with your feet slightly wider than your hips. Squat down as low as possible, allowing your upper back to relax and round.
  2. Slip your elbows under the center of the barbell between your legs and squeeze the barbell in the crooks of your elbows.
  3. Take a breath before you begin to lift. Track the knees out over your ties and try to keep your back from shifting while under tension.
  4. Deadlift the bar t the fully upright position, keeping your core braced throughout the lift. Return it back to the floor in the exact reverse order.
