The Deadlift. It is the quintessential weightlifting exercise that yields a massive ROI on your time and energy. Here are 3 variations from easiest to hardest. Reasons why you should deadlift? Here are 6!
1. 𝗠𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗰𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻: The Deadlift is an exercise that involves all our body muscles. Squats also work on muscles, but deadlifts do more. Taking on a deadlift assures you that all the major muscle groups are engaged and a positive impact is shown.
𝟮. 𝗟𝗲𝗮𝗱𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗵𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀: By doing around 8-10 lift repetitions with feasible weights, you increase the growth hormone and the amount of testosterone in the body. Growth hormone enhances bone strength, fat loss, muscle growth, and tissue healing & testosterone improves muscle repair and muscle growth.
𝟯. 𝗕𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗣𝗼𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲:
Deadlifting increases your core strength and adds to core stability. Deadlifting targets all of the muscles responsible for your posture and enables you to keep your back straighter during regular daily activities.
𝟰. 𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝘁:
When you do other lifting exercises, like a bench press, for example, you’re not doing anything you might really do in real life. When are you ever going to have the need to lay on your back and push something in the air — unless you’re giving your two-year-old “flying lessons.” The Deadlift develops the muscles you need to actually carry something, like a bucket of water, those heavy grocery bags or your friends emotional burdens (haha just kidding).
𝟱. 𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗖𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗼:
Believe it or not, doing 10 repetitions of Deadlifts will increase your cardiovascular ability.
𝟲. 𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗜𝗻𝗷𝘂𝗿𝘆:
The Deadlift can help prevent injuries by increasing the strength of your muscles around critical tendons and ligaments. Supporting joints with strong muscles is crucial to preventing injury, especially in the hamstrings and lower back.
