Deadlifts

Guys wots the correct way for doing deadlifts. I've been told its good to have your arms shoulder width apart, left hand - palm facing the floor and your right hand - palm facing the ceiling????

Should I have both palms facing the floor?

Cheers

    when in the standing position, hands should be about2 inches either side of your hips. some folk like both palms down, some like a mixed grip, whatever you find comfortable. just make sure you alternate the grip if you are using a mixed grip.
    keep your ass well down at the botom of the lift, keep your back flat, bar close to your shins on the way up, the bar rubs my shins on the way up.. neutral head postion.
    good luck

    do not face both palms downward. Face one up and one down, this helps to prevent hte bar from slipping, which would affect ur concentration and potentially injure u.
