The deadlift is not a golf swing. It shouldn’t be over complicated. Some technique is good in order to avoid injuries while learning how your body responds to the forces but over time, once you’re able to control your core, its really about brute strength. That’s what I love about the lift, you just have to man up if you want to pull really big weights. Most people fail mentally.
