Deadlifts! Just Do Them!

Deadlifts are great for legs, back, glutes and core!

Deadlifts are great for legs, back, glutes and core!

Deadlifts sometimes get a bad rap but I think they’re one of the best exercises around.  Done properly, they are safe and incredibly effective.  Deadlifts are a compound movement and hit many muscle groups.  They use your legs, back, biceps, triceps, glutes and core.  If you don’t already incorporate deadlifts into your program think about adding them.  My advice is to ask someone to show you proper form before you get started.  In every gym I’ve ever been to, the trainers will show you how to do a specific exercise the right way without charging you.  You can’t expect them to design a whole program for you without a fee but usually they’re happy to give you an occasional tip regarding form to keep you safe.  Once you know the correct way to do them, you’re ready to put them to work for you..and work for you they will.  Within a few weeks of beginning you’ll see (and feel) the difference they make in your overall program.

Deadlifts are safe done correctly.  First consult someone regarding proper form, then go to it!
