Deadlift (up to knees)
« on: June 10, 2014, 08:43:34 PM »
I've always assumed it was deadlift, stop just before your sticking point for a couple of seconds and finish the rep. Is this correct? Some say you pause then just lower the bar without finishing the lockout. Thanks

That is correct. Sometimes confused with:

Deadlift (pause at the knees)

which is a full deadlift.

I think the confusion derives from some of the early translations that were on elitefts which got the two movements mixed up.

Thanks for the replies guys. Another quick question, in the CMS 9 week cycle found on elitefts, the programme has a lot of lateral side raises. What are the purpose of these?

Deadlift up to knees is a very effective exercise. It provides stability and strength in the initial and middle part of the movement.

I honestly find it harder than a full deadlift because of the pause. But it works for me.

I would not say that it is harder. I find that i have to control start and pausing at knee level makes the effect of a constrain in terms of control. You have to control the bar so much that normally you don't. It provides me much more feeling with the lift

I have the exact same feeling. Also I think this lift made my technique much stronger.

Doing deadlifts to the knees can fix your technique, for example, if you pull like the athlete in the picture below. When the barbell is near his knees the legs are already straight and the rest of movement is done by the back muscles only.

I suppose pic 1 is the correct form since the mass centre of the bar is closer to the body? Is this also the purpose of the deadlift to knees then, to learn to pull closer to your body?

The picture above shows incorrect form. Almost no work will be done by the legs for the remainder of the lift. Doing deadlifts to the knees as a partial movement can help you to fix this.

Here's how it should look.
