So a lot of us have had this question as to which is better when it comes to training- dumbbell or barbell. Some say barbell feels good while some others are dumbbell feel gooders.

Well there's no feel-good thing when it comes to stating scientific facts. So breaking the ice- it's the dumbbell who wins!

Deadlift Tutorial

Deadlift tutorial:

Before you watch the video, please see the picture.




Picture 1: The stance.

Since this is a conventional deadlift, the stance is a hip width stance. The center of the foot is exactly under the bar. Shin to bar is not the right concept. You'll know why as you read further.

Picture 2: Grip.

The grip that you see here is called a dead grip. One arm is supinated (under the bar) and the other is pronated (over the bar). This gives a very strong hold. People who are comfortable with a normal grip are good to go as long as they feel strong.
