But if you are instructed to "maintain spine neutral" you still might perform the lift wrong. That is why i will be sharing two more cues that I prefer to use with lifters, which, i have found, to assists trainers to really nail that critical spinal position.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR BACK WHEN DEADLIFTING

1.Deadlifting form tip: Get tight and wedge

The truth is that a tight body makes it possible to keep your spine straight. So get it tight straight away, as you are setting up for the lift.

Because if you are not tight whenever you lift, the following things will happen whenever you pull the barbell up and running:
  • 1.Your upper or lower spine will round.
  • 2.Your hips may come up too fast in relation to your shoulders.

2.Deadlifting form tip: Align your armpits and flex your hamstrings

Let's say you followed the tips given and you can't just keep that neutral spine if you do a regular deadlift.

Your history of working out, past injuries, goals, anatomy, and comfort level can all decide if you should perform a conventional deadlift.

For example, the sumo deadlift can be quite better if you have chronically tight hips, short arms, or even for taller people. Likewise, people that are new to deadlifting or possess a history of back pain  issues might wish to accomplish the more back and beginner-friendly trap bar deadlift.

Regardless from the variation you perform, never stray out of this rule: Make sure your armpits are directly within the bar, make sure that your hamstrings are flexed and tightened.

In the gym you can see a lot of guys set up their armpits past an acceptable limit in front in the bar, making for a poor distinctive line of lifting. It often causes weight to shift on your toes. As you lift in this position, and try to fall forward, this will in turn add force instantly to your delicate lower back.

An easy fix to get your  weight back and armpits on the bar, roll the barbell just closer to your shins.

To build hamstring tension to help you contract the muscles powerfully, think of the hamstrings just like a bow's string lengthen them by upholding your hips high. Your hips needs to be as high as possible while allowing you to maintain your back straight and lift the weight.
