Exercise Of The Week – Deadlift

Deadlifts are one of the most important weight training exercises for overall muscular development. A deadlift, properly done, will work the lower torso, lower back, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteal muscles, and forearms. As with all exercises, proper form is extremely important, especially in regards to the lifter’s spine. Failing to maintain a neutral spine can result in serious back injury. When it comes to a proper grip, overhand and alternating are suggested, with the later generally used in lifting greater weight. As expected, this is a common lift in CrossFit, and has easily become one of my favorites.
