I do not know who started it or why, but it has become one thing. At the top of a deadlift, the lifters make a deliberate shaking motion to stop the movement.
The problem is that it adds absolutely nothing to the movement. It does not increase gluten involvement at all and does not improve the hip drive. Instead, it creates a perfect platform for injury, lumbar hyperextension and hip joint disease.
We have to think logically about it. From the point of view of the force angle, the deadlift is a vertical train. Hip drive is horizontal. Most of our glutinous involvement is likely to come through the first two-thirds of the uplift. Then the hips are most bent and the glutes serve as hip extensors.
Aggressive driving at one million miles per hour at the top of the elevator brings no added value. And the reason why people can give so much speed to this segment of the elevator from the outset is that the force angle is no longer directly on the gluteal muscles. Instead, they switch to the traps, shoulders and back.
Due to the erroneous logic that the glutes become more powerful as the tip punctures, one sees people who are able to do the same thing in a severe hip fall puts the load directly on the force generated by the dies becomes. But that does not work.
After all, there is no way to protect the spine from compression during hip lashing. If you have problems with your initial setup or have good mechanics during the duration of your normal deadlift, adding some speed, thanks to the hip whip, will only make matters worse.
There is nothing wrong with getting smooth and controlled and you will see better profits.
