Advantages of Dead Lifts
There are so many advantages to deadlifts that it is difficult to find space to list them all. Here is a list of deadlift advantages:
- They burn calories and blast body fat
- They build forearms and increase grip strength
- They build total body strength
- They work many muscle groups in one simple movement: the calves, quads, hamstrings, butt, arms, core, lower/middle/upper back, traps, and shoulders
- They sculpt the entire core
- They increase the release of muscle building hormones.
Pointers for Dead Lifts
- Sit back! Don’t just squat the weight up– let your hamstrings and glutes do the work.
- Keep your shoulders behind the bar. This goes hand-in-hand with sitting back during the pull.
- Instead of thinking of “pulling the bar up” — use your hands as vices and picture pushing your feet through the floor. Whenever I see someone using their biceps during a deadlift (which is extremely dangerous), I know they’re thinking of pulling.
- Think of yourself as a see-saw. Let your body weight “lean back” and take that weight off the bar.
