Which joint comes into use when you lift your head?

It would depend entirely on the type of lift, but in most cases the humeroulnar joint, or the elbow, would most likely be involved, e.g. barbell rows and presses, and inevitably in a commercial gym, the barbell curl. The elbows do not contribute to the movement of the deadlift or power clean, in the former staying locked throughout, the latter only moving to rack the bar on the deltoids after the force against the bar ceases at the top of the movement.
