Don’t just take our word for how great we are! Let’s hear what JR has to say:
“I’ve been working out with Forest for over six months now and have noticed a significant improvement in strength and agility. He is knowledgeable, positive, and encouraging. If you are looking to start working out or just change up your routine, this is a great option.”
Thank you for the kind words JR, and keep up the awesome work!

Here is the 5-point mental “checklist” I think about before a deadlift session. I also try to focus on ONE of these tips – that I, or a client I’m working with – need to work on most, for the workout. Do you think I hit all of these points in the video? 🙂
5-Point Deadlift Technique Checklist
1 – Set up with the bar just in front of your shins, but not touching them. When you reach down to grab the bar, your shins should touch it.
2 – Take the slack out of the bar when you set up and get ready to lift. This will feel a bit like you’re pulling up on the bar and driving your feet into the ground at the same time. Another way to think about it is like you’re wedging yourself between the bar and the ground.
3 – Get your back flat. Your shoulders should be down and back, your back flat, and your upper back tight and positioned right over the bar on your set up.
4 – The bar path should be straight up and down. NOT around your knees, out in front of your body, etc.
5 – Stick with the double overhand grip for as long as possible. At some point, when the weight gets higher, you’ll have to switch to the mixed grip. But the double overhand grip is most symmetrical and easiest on your body.
