Exercise of the week: Deadlift
These are 4 variations of the Deadlift, ranging from beginner to advance. Here are 3 reasons why the deadlift is a great exercise.
- Trains the hip hinge. Which is fundamental movement pattern for any body. Teaches someone to move properly from hips and not spine. From firing off the line on the football field, to picking up your child or grandchild off the floor.
- Posterior chain development. Calves, hamstrings, glutes.
- Big compound movement. Recruits major muscles groups enabling the body to do a lot of work in a short amount of time Pictured below (beginner to advanced):Kettlebell Deadlift off a box, Kettlebell Deadlift, Trap Bar or Hex Bar Deadlift, Barbell Deadlift
