The Deadlift

The deadlift is the third Strength Performance Level exercise. Training the deadlift can have a tremendous impact on your full-body strength, posture, metabolism, and sport and daily activities. It is a very natural and functional movement (how many times per day to you pick something up). With aging and a sedentary lifestyle, many people lose flexibility and strength in their hips and the ability to stabilize their backs with resistance (I see it everyday). Also, you rarely see someone performing a deadlift correctly in the gym. So many people are missing out on the benefits of this great exercise.
