Hip Mobility to Swings and Deadlifts
by Charlie Weingroff & Mark Cheng
The issues that hold people back from pulling more weight off the ground vary from individual to individual, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.
That’s why in this hip hinge video (Hacking the Hinge), Charlie Weingroff and Mark Cheng show us a variety of strategies for improving two of the most important hinge movements: the deadlift, and its closely related cousin, the kettlebell swing.
This Charlie Weingroff & Mark Cheng video shows us how to identify suitable entry points for coaching the deadlift and swing using the active straight-leg raise test from the Functional Movement Screen. We’ll never again have to rely on a ‘one size fits all,’ or ‘hope and pray’ approach.
And then they’ll show an array of strategies to improve these movements from each different entry point, so you’ll have different tools to help your clients succeed in the deadlift and swing, quickly and safely, no matter where they currently are.
Charlie is no stranger to the deadlift himself, having deadlifted triple bodyweight and reaching elite status in powerlifting with a 1915-pound total in the 220-pound weight class.
Together with Mark Cheng, a Senior Level Instructor at StrongFirst, they’ll show you the nuances and finer details of the hinge that you may have missed, and that may be holding your clients back from moving bigger weights.
Even if your clients aren’t athletes or powerlifters, getting them strong in hinge movements like the deadlift and the swing can help accelerate them towards their fitness goals. The deadlift and swing are ‘big money’ moves that can help people get fit and lean, and that carry over to many other activities.
