Deadlift Workshop

DECONSTRUCTING THE DEADLIFT taught by strength and mobility coach (and deadlift fanatic) Dan Jones! 

Human 2.0 Deadlift Workshop

The deadlift is thought to be one of the best and most functional exercises a person can do. Unfortunately, in the overly saturated fitness industry – and with the help of Youtube and Google – everyone has become their own “researcher”. For the inexperienced, it’s hard to know what to do and what not to do, making performing exercises like the deadlift complicated, and therefore dangerous. In this 3 hour workshop, Dan aims to simplify the deadlift for all lifters from beginners to coaches, and even seasoned powerlifters as well.

This workshop is highly recommended by Human 2.0 owner and orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Chris. Everyone should know how to “lift stuff properly” in order to prevent injury, and that’s exactly what the deadlift is designed to do.
