This study examined the impact of bar placement on body positioning and forces through the legs and spine during static deadlift pulls from the ground. Some lifters deadlift with the bar very close to their shins and others with it closer to the toes. The authors studied the impact of pulling with both positions and found that while each position resulted in differences in body position and muscle usage, there were no differences in the total force output or in the amount of stress in the low back. Lifters can choose either position without concern for added low back stress. View this paper.
