At face value, barbell sports seem pretty distant from a movement education “mindset”. How much movement do you really need to know to squat, bench, and deadlift?
Well, it turns out that it can get pretty muddy.
What do you do when someone is shifting at their hips during their deadlift? Do you just deadlift more? Do you throw reverse hypers at them and hope it helps?
Specific knowledge of movement and anatomy can drastically speed up your progression of powerlifters and weightlifters. You just have to know what you’re looking for.
