Why I Deadlift With My Feet So Close Together

Whenever I post a video of me deadlifting on Instagram, I get bombarded with questions asking why my feet are so close together. A few years ago, my coach, Matt Reynolds, changed my stance width, toe angle, and how I set my back to help me lift the most amount of weight. To answer all those questions that I get about why my feet are so close together, I decided to come out of YouTube hibernation and make a video with Matt explaining why I deadlift the way I do. 

With these deadlift adjustments, I pulled a lifetime PR of 605 lbs back in November 2018. 

Enjoy.
