Annie Sakamoto demonstrates 4 different Deadlift set up positions

First of all, Annie Sakamoto is no slouch. She is one of the original hand trained CrossFit athletes by Greg Glassman in the Santa Cruz days and a phenomenal athlete and trainer. In this photo sequence, she demos a series of Deadlift positions to help ascertain what is good and not so good at an old CF Level 1 Cert.

From Right to Left

1) The bar is way too far away from the body.

2) Rounded shoulder and a weak lumber curve means the chest has fallen, this is what generally occurs as we hit our maximum weights.

3) Tight back but lack of Lumber Curve, The bar is slightly forward of the shoulderd.

4) Perfect set up position, feet directly below the hips, toes forward. Tight back, lumbar curve, high chest and head neutral.


How do you get good at deadlift? You do deadlifts….

The deadlift is like no other for bullding strong people. Like Mark Rippetoe says, “Strong people are harder to kill and more useful in general”.
