The Deadlift By Nathan Cruz

The deadlift is one of the most popular exercises of all time. Personally, I can’t imagine any workout programme without it. The beauty of the deadlift is that everything improves along with it, it naturally releases the most growth hormone into our system and increases strength on various other lifts too such as the squat and even the military press. Depending on your goals the majority of us could benefit from increasing our numbers when it comes to the deadlift.

How To Deadlift…

The basics to a good deadlift are to:

walk up to the bar, stand with your mid-foot under the bar (using an Olympic barbell) grab the bar with your preferred grip (I use alternating)…

The Deadlift

Bend over without bending your legs, then drop into position by bending your knees until your shins touch the bar.
Next, lift your chest.
Straighten your back as you raise your chest.
…PULL
Take a big breath, hold it and stand up with the weight.

I find that a good Pre-Workout really helps me get into the zone and push myself – check them out right here.

Deadlift Top Tips

A few tips that may help increase your lift and that are certainly worth thinking about….

Lift in socks or even do it barefooted.
If you can get a pair of socks with grip on the bottom (like the ones you may get from a trampoline park) or even authentic deadlifting socks (although those can be pricey) they’re ideal.
Having your feet flat to the platform/floor with no soft cushion between can help increase your lift by giving you a firmer base to lift from.
Alternatively you can also try converse/flat shoes.

Straps?

Personally I’m not a user of straps as anything to help increase my grip is beneficial for pro wrestling.

However I know that the use of straps would no doubt mean I could add 5/10kgs on my lift as it usually is my hands that slip away from me before my body gives out.

So perhaps give these a go and see what you prefer.

Oh, also…..liquid chalk is awesome, after a few seconds it dries and you’ve got some serious GRIP!

Increase the Weight Gradually

Make the increases in your sets suitable.

You don’t want to be burning out too early if you’re aiming for that PB.
10kg increases when you get to those heavy sets are best, after two warm up sets; think of what your goal is for the lift.
Work backwards, so say you want to get 200kg for example – have three heavy sets before your target set.
So 180 for 2 sets….190 for 1 set….and then 200 for 1 set.

You may even find you might be able to exceed that day’s target.

I love deadlifting.

It’s something I incorporate into every weekly split and without question I notice the difference if it is cut out of my programme.

Hopefully these tips will help you also climb to a new PB before the end of the year, now go get it!

Product Review: Justine’s Protein Cookies & Brownie

Protein snacks are all the rage right now and it’s easy to see why. With a solid protein hit and some tasty options available, there’s never been a better time to be into living a healthy lifestyle.

We’ve had Protein Bars for a little while, but now we have some serious alternatives which include some of the latest additions to the Discount Supplements website that we’re looking at in this review.

All the way from New Zealand we’ve got:

Justine’s Protein Cookies

Justines Protein Cookie

Justine’s Protein Brownie

Justines Protein Brownie
Both of these products offer a soft baked taste which is a real treat during the day. We can only imagine how good these must be for those who are deep into a dieting phase!

Luckily they’re very low carb, Wheat & Gluten Free, high in fibre and ideal for taking on the go.

Justine’s Protein Brownie

Crumbly, chocolate brownie like and satisfyingly filling these Protein Brownies really do the job.

Product Highlights

– 15g protein

– 0.5g sugar!

– Great choice for an on the go protein snack

Ingredients wise, they use a variety of different protein sources including egg, soy protein isolate and calcium caseinate meaning that he amino acid profile is going to be solid and offer somewhat of a tapered release too.

Taste wise, Justine’s Protein Brownie are pretty brownie like (although not as moist as a regular brownie) and they left us feeling satisfied.

Justine’s Protein Cookies

When it comes to the Protein Cookies there are a few flavours available:

Chocolate Fudge
Peanut Butter Choc Chip
Raspberry and White Chocolate
Chocolate Chip

….and overall we must say that we’re pretty impressed.

All of the flavours offer impressive macros and taste like cookies!

Although it’s hard to pick a favourite, there’s something about the Raspberry White Chocolate that stood out in particular.

Are you a cookie fan? If so, you’re going to love these!

Make sure to check out the individual product listings for more information and get your hands on them today from right here at Discount Supplements!
