I have been on a fitness journey the last 2 years and have seen incredible results. As I learn new things, I hope to share them along the way. Yes, I know it has nothing to do with Saving Money, but having something light to discuss every once a while cuts the monotony. One of my new discoveries is the power of Deadlift Exercise.
Why Dealift is a Great Workout
There are a lot of workout programs out there, and the industry keeps churning them out like hot cake. This is because people are always looking for ways to get a good workout – especially if it is a total body workout. You can get programs like T25 Workout, which promises a lot in 25 minutes. Or you can do total body workouts like deadlifts is much less time and get a better workout.
Deadlift Muscles Worked
- Lower Back
When doing the regular deadlift with the barbell, you should stand with your shins very close to the bar. Sometimes, it is helpful if you have long socks, so that you will not bruise when the bar rubs against your left. It is also suggested that you use a mixed (reverse) or double overhand grip so that you will have a firm hold on the bar. You should make sure your back is straight, or slightly arched, so that you will maintain proper form and not hurt yourself when the load gets heavier.
To begin, bend your knees and push your hips back. When you begin the lift from the ground, the bar should trace your legs the entire time as you slowing rise, pulling your legs back as the bar goes up. You will know you’ve completed a successful deadlift when your hips are fully extended and your knees are straight.
