Have you tried the deadlift yet? One of the most popular compound workouts in the world, the deadlift is a favourite among the pros. In fact, some of the greatest bodybuilders and body transformation coaches swear by the benefits of the deadlift and with a good reason too. When done properly, the deadlift can not just enhance all major muscle groups but it can also help you gain muscle mass as well. Today, with the help of trainers from Power World Gyms, let’s have a look at why clean and press is important for you and how to do it correctly.
Deadlift is a compound workout and works out multiple muscle groups in your body in a go. A single set of deadlift works a total of 6 muscles, namely, glutes, quads, hamstrings, back, traps, and the core. The deadlift also helps you correct your posture, improves your grip strength, increases the production of testosterone, and improves your cardiovascular health while reducing the risk of injury. Deadlift is not just an amazing all-in-one compound workout, but it also doesn’t require a complex set-up either. All you need is a barbell and some weight to perform this workout.
How To Do:
Step 1: Stand to face the barbell such that your shins are not touching the bar.
Step 2: Grab the bar while bending your knees and pushing your hips back. Keep your head and chest up.
Step 3: Straighten your feet and bring your hips forward keeping the barbell close to your body.
Step 4: Bend your knees and push your hips back to come back to the starting position.
Step 5: Repeat
Love it or hate it, the fact is that you cannot deny the fact that deadlift is an absolute must workout that you should definitely include into your workout routine. However, if you are a first timer we definitely recommend some supervision. After all, if your posture is incorrect you won’t be able to reap the full benefits of the workout. More importantly, an incorrect workout can also cause injuries to your body. This is where the role of the trainers becomes important.
