I took a trip to get deadlift help from an old, elite powerlifter, Marc Bartley. Marc broke down my deadlift, gave me help with speed deadlift training, deadlift setup, and deadlift accessory exercises, and more!

      @Jr Kim no. Tom is a thief. Bringing him back is never going to happen, and it’s a terrible idea.

      @Jr Kim Stop. We dont need this. We need good vibes hard work and no thieves. Go somewhere else if you cant respest this.

      @Jr Kim You still have to ask permission from your business partners to take money. Which he did not. Tom will never be in another Juji video deal with it.

    over the years, i've found that any squeeze at the top of a lift is poor form and changes your bone alignment too much. leads to joint injury. i found a new way. if you focus on your feet all the way through your closed chain lower body lifts and continuously "reach" out the bottom of your foot while pressing, you never get clicks or knee wobble. the joints never fall into poor alignment (like when you see a guy's knees bow in when he tries a squat pr). never ever squeeze at the height of a motion, it ruins alignment and damages joints. i'm telling you, foot focus fixes almost every form problem and makes even heavy movements buttery smooth. i realize nobody will take this advice, but i know for a fact the instruction he's giving you here about squeezing your butt will decrease range of motion in your hip and put more sheer force in your knees on the way down. i've been studying for decades on this stuff, i know it sounds crazy, but i'm doubling my leg strength with this technique, and never having knee clicks or joint soreness. pressing power from the back/top of the hips, control point is the foot palm reach. i will never work legs any other way, it's so good. basicaly what i've learned over the years is all of those old lifter techniques that had you over solidifying to maintain form all force your form off perfectly strict, which nets you lower strength gains on top of the increased risk of injury. i realize what i'm saying goes against convention, but try it. it'll change your entire life.

    What an incredible video! I feel like I learned a ton, and still only absorbed a fraction of the information and wisdom Spud imparted in that video.

    I love to see how cool these "old head" powerlifters are that run the companies we support. Always nice to see how excited they are to teach and pass along their love for lifting.

    I’m no deadlift master, but with a max out with 2-3 backoffs every dl workout...I’d suggest this: less max outs, more volume.

    Damn I thought Juji was in his early to mid forties.

  • DysfunctionalBubble

    Eddie Hall has a great vid about deadlifting too.

  • DysfunctionalBubble

    Good advise. A strong man said that they don't do their max every session, and not before a comp.

    Did you get to try the other monolift he has there? Not the Dyna-Body. The other one. Spud Inc is a great gym. Went to their Holiday Bash last year and decided it's an annual must.

    What a great teacher, this dude really knows his shit. I've definitely found better breathing to help me with being able to access my glutes better and reduce tightness, as weird as it sounds. Really trying to engage my diaphragm and breathe through the whole back.

  • AChristianYoutube

    I like to treat my deads like squats. I use the same stance, get my butt down, and explode off the ground with the legs.

    Hey Juji, good cue that worked for not to not shrug is to really cue elbows out the whole lift. But that only works with double overhand

    It is a great thing to have a Master teach you in a discipline that you have chosen. It's amazing to see the progress one can achieve with a master teacher coupled with a humble student mindset. I was lucky enough to be a student of Larry Vickers. Changed my mindset and ability Drastically.

    Let’s learn deadlifts from someone who’s worst lift is a deadlift!!! *heavy sarcasm, many respect*

    I'm just wondering how they ripped their quad off, that seems insane to me!

    Tom just called me and asked me to tell you he wants his gym back

    I didn't know there was any other way to put plates on the bar than to have the numbers facing in towards the lifter.

    i definately think you should get eddie hall down your gym juji his deadlift technique massively helped mine and thats just from watching his video on it. !!

  • Travel Review
    Travel Review

    These videos must be really difficult to do for Juji. Its hard and also frustrating to try and master someone else's techniques without a camera around. The idea of the video is that he learns a lot from this guy, improving his lift, giving the audience a satisfying ending. That goal is extremely difficult to reach though because things like this take more than one days time. People will hate me for this but...I do miss Tom.

  • valdezapg

    what kind of microphone are you using, barely can hear juji or spud and then when sam speaks its very loud

  • SilentMott

    Absolutely floored that guy's deadlift is actually LESS than both his squat AND BENCH!!!!

    Btw Juji you had a weightlifting belt back in the day. If I recall correctly you wouldnt tell us where it came from, because the brand didnt want to sponsor it. It looks a whole lot like Spuds belts. Is that a coincidence? :P

    Juijmufu you have a unique ability as a popular lifter to encourage good form and not ego lifting. Doing vids like this are great! Please keep showing other improvements you make in form and keep showing progress we (the fans) LOVE IT!

    The vibe around the videos without... he who shall not be named, feels more genuine and, pure? Not trying to stir up unwanted news. But, I was worried the dynamic would feel funny without him, and it feels like, a whole new product. Not worse, not necessarily better, but I'm happy Juji is able to find success regardless.

  • Fred Richardson

    Really like this kind of video - technical feedback and other input from a third party really makes the content a lot more interesting in my (okay maybe no humble enough) opinion! I realize that takes some work and a lot of coordinating to make this happen, but it is great when you do it! 😃👍💪 My deadlift needs a lot of work and I'm pulling low weight so maybe that's why I'm fixated on this!

    I used to teach music (guitar mainly) 7 days a week, up at 5 trying to fit in workouts... I definitely used those narco naps on the studio floor in between lessons. Never went 2x grinds and 1/2 the water though. That's a new one to me!

  • Pogla The Grate

    Have a coffee or tea or caffeinated soft drink. Nap from between 10 to 20 minutes. I like 12, but experiment without the caffeine. Caffeine will attach to the melatonin receptors in your brain, but will not replace the melatonin that is already there. i.e. caffeine will help you stay awake, but if you're tired caffeine won't wake you up further. A nap of between 10 to 20 minutes (roughly) will clear out melatonin from your brain more effectively than a short nap, or a long snooze. This is why you often wake up groggy after a snooze. If you think that you can never fall asleep that fast, set a timer for twelve minutes and say that I'm wrong.

    this was great. I've been re-focused on my deadlifts recently and I learned some great tips from this vid. Marc is a great guy with some incredible knowledge. I miss the reverse hyper from the old gym I was at. I've been focused on building my home gym and really need one. I always used to use it for recovery after deads and squats and it felt great. You two need to colab more in the future!

    Deficit deads always helped me off the floor. With your long arms they're ideal.
