Deadlift is an important movement and the go-to exercise for anyone who wants to build stronger glutes. While it may look easy, deadlifts can be quite a pain to teach especially when our clients are new. Breaking down the movement and teaching them the fundamentals is a great way to getting someone to deadlift eventually, certainly and safely. Try this step-by-step progression to help your clients earn their first deadlift!
.
1️⃣Kneeling hip-hinge
✔First, start teaching your client to perform hip-hinge in kneeling position as it is more stable. Try cueing ‘push the butt to the back’ or ‘bend at the hips’. Deadlift needs maximal hip flexion and minimal knee flexion, hence the importance of learning hip-hinge.
.
2️⃣Standing hip-hinge
✔Next, progress your client into doing hip-hinge in standing position as this challenges the spine stability more. ⚠️Be sure to check that your client does not hyperextend the lumbar spine nor imitate a ‘sitting down’ movement.
.
3️⃣Dumbbell/Kettlebell Romanian Deadlift
✔If your client has mastered the hip-hinge, it’s time to introduce a Romanian Deadlift, with either a dumbbell/kettlebell first. Place the DB/KB between your feet > pick up the weights and start in a standing position > perform a hip-hinge > hands to stop ideally at knee-level > perform hip extension to come back into starting position. ⚠️Be sure to check that your client keeps a neutral spine throughout. A progression for this is Barbell Romanian Deadlift as seen in image 4️⃣
.
5️⃣Barbell Conventional Deadlift
✔Finally, you’re going to progress your client into deadlifting starting from the ground. ⚠️Remember to cue for core activation, lats engagement and neutral spine position throughout the setup and execution.
.
In the Certified Fitness Practitioner (CFP) Level 1, deadlift is one of the 8 basic exercises featured. You will learn how to teach the fundamentals and progressions of these exercises according to your client(s) abilities.

We can understand the frustration that fitness professionals face when their clients can’t seem to stay on track with nutrition goals despite wanting to achieve their fitness goals. While it’s hard, it’s not impossible! We just need to remember that eating habits are developed through a period of time and cannot be changed overnight. Therefore, as fitness professionals, we play a role in bringing them 1 step closer to their goal.
.
Here’s a 4-step coaching model to ensure your clients get a pleasant transformation experience:

D - Desired Outcome
Find out what is their desired outcome; everyone says they want 6-pack abs, but why? What’s the underlying motivation? Are they ready to have a 6-pack and do they know what it takes to achieve it? Nutrition strategies of getting a 6-pack and just being healthy is very different!
.
I - Investigate & Interpret
Not everyone sees food as fuel. Some see food as pleasure, entertainment, social etc. Other than asking what they eat and how much they eat, try asking why, where, and who do they eat with?
.
E - Educate & Empower
Most of our clients know the general concept of healthy eating, but they may not know how to apply those concepts into their food preferences. Set small goals that are within the capabilities of your clients because you want them to be successful, e.g. drink another glass of water during lunch.
.
T - Trial & Error
You will never know what works for each client! Create an honest environment with your client and tell them that you are ready to help problem solve. We will not know if each strategy works until we try it and get feedback from each other. If it works, it stays, if it doesn’t, we improvise.
.
This D-I-E-T model is more for fitness professionals to understand the steps to helping your clients make sustainable dietary modifications. When working with clients, you should avoid using the word ‘DIET’ because if they think they are ‘going on a diet’, it’s simply a matter of time before they will ‘go off the diet’. You should focus on teaching them how to EAT and make better food choices!
