Where should my weight be when I’m deadlifting?

“Where should my weight be when I’m deadlifting? In my heels? “

No, I don’t want your weight in your heels when you’re deadlifting. I like your weight on your mid-foot. Unfortunately, what you see is that many people are very quad dominant, so they’ll roll up onto their toes. 

You’ll often hear the coaching cue, “weight on your heels,” when they’re just trying to get you back to your midfoot. 

What does that look like? You want a flat foot with the weight just behind the ball of the foot.

Pressure plate analysis shows that the best athletes and performers are putting the most force right through there. So I don’t want you on your toes or your heels. I want you on your mid-foot. I hope that helps.
