Knees Out and Trap Bar Deadlifting

Eric Cressey put up a great, short video discussing knees out and foot position in the deadlift.

His original blog post is here.

Here is the video (worth the two minute run time), and it shows a common issue on the trap bar deadlift - a too-wide stance forcing knee collapse in order to accommodate the arms when you grip the handle.

Good stuff.
