How To Deadlift Using Chains (VIDEO)

This video shows you how to DEADLIFT WITH CHAINS…

Deadlifting with chains you will improve your starting strength and your LOCKOUT POWER.

Chains accomodate resistance, making the weight heavier at lockout, and lighter when the bar is on the floor at the start of your Deadlift.

You DO NOT need a loading chain in order to Deadlift against chain. Instead, you can just drape the chains over the bar (as you’ll see in the video).

Chains are a great tool for any powerlifter, strength enthusiast and athlete who requires more speed, strength and power (so if this sounds like you, then I highly recommend that you incorporate them into your

One thing to watch out for when Deadlifting with chains is to make sure that the chain is directly under the bar or placed slightly back towards you at the start. You do not want the chain in front of the bar because it will pull you forwards as you lift, which is both dangerous and inefficient.

Experiment with the chains and let me know how you get on.

Here is my current Deadlift training plan:

Week 1: 60% x 3 doubles (against 20kg of chain)

Week 2: 65% x 3 doubles (against 20kg of chain)

Week 3: 70% x 3 doubles (against 20kg of chain)

Week 4: Work up to a heavy single, then do a heavy partial (from around knee height)

Feel free to copy my training routine and get your Deadlift going UP!
