5 Benefits of the Deadlift

1. Helps Fat Loss

Lifting weights and resistance training will burn more fat than dieting combined with cardio exercise alone will.

2. Improved Posture

Deadlifting increases your core strength and stability, targeting the muscles responsible for your posture.

3. More Muscles Worked

The Deadlift works more muscles than any other exercise- even squats.

4. Aids Real Life Lifting Ability

The Deadlift develops the muscles you need to actually carry something heavy – ideal if your goal is less trips to and from the car with your shopping. They can also help you prevent injury with real life lifting, improving the strength of the muscles around tendons and ligaments.

5. They are Easy

You won’t need special shoes (or even any shoes) just a bar and some weights. Pick it up, put it back down. In comparison to some lifts these are easy to learn and progress with.
