After reading that article I realized that I was pinning my shoulder blades back like they described and not down like they recommended. I was pulling my shoulder blades back tight which I noticed made my hands move up a few inches, when I tried to tighten my shoulder blades and bring them down and in my back pocket, I felt really tight and my arms/hands dropped a few inches. |
Rich mentioned arching like when you set up for bench, that was the first time I have heard the deadlift set-up described that way and it does the same thing. When you set up to bench you arch your back and set your shoulder blades in and down, not just back, to maintain that arch. That visual will help me a lot.
