Deadlifts

Posted on Mar 11, 20

Quite a few people avoid doing deadlifts because they think it is a dangerous movement and are fearful of hurting their back, but it is actually a very safe exercise –IF you learn proper form first, before increasing weight, AS SHOULD be done with ALL movements!.

 

When you perform a deadlift you don’t need someone to spot you and if you can’t handle or finish the rep you just drop it leaving you safe.

 

To some the deadlift is considered the king of all exercises due to the amount of muscles it works in the body. It not only targets your hamstrings, glutes, quads, inner thighs, spinal erectors, lats, and traps but it also strengthens your rhomboids, abs and obliques. Deadlifts also assist in improving your posture.

 

Some other benefits of deadlifts are they dramatically help improve your grip strength, increase fat burning and also they help prevent injury by strengthening the muscles around critical tendons and ligaments.
