Video Article

Maggie Dabe from CrossFit Fairfax is one of CrossFit HQ’s traveling seminar trainers. Originally from Ecuador, she explains our standard cues and faults for the deadlift entirely in Spanish.

When performing the deadlift, the stance will be between hip and shoulder width, with the weight in the heels. The grip will be just outside the knees, and the lumbar curve must be maintained throughout the lift. The shoulders will be over, or just slightly in front of, the bar at the set-up. During the lift, both the hips and shoulders should rise at the same rate. In a good lift, the bar will stay close to the shins and thighs at all times, and the hip and knee angles will be completely open at the top of the movement.

This series is our first venture into foreign-language instruction in a video. The rest of the nine core movements will be included.

it would be nice with subtitles. i mean, if you can find the time do it. feels like they might be saying something useful that we non-spanish speaking miss out on.
