5 benefits of doing deadlifts


1. Improved Posture

Doing deadlifts will increase your strength of your core. This will improve your core stability. This movement will activate every muscle responsible for your posture. This lift will enable you to keep your back straight even during daily activities.

2. More Muscles Targeted

This movement activates more muscles than any other exercise. Dead lifts even activates more muscles that the squat. This movement engages all of the major muscle groups. If there was on exercise that you need to do, this is the one. The Dead lift works your lower and upper body, including especially your back muscles.

3. Beneficial for your real life

When you do other lifting exercises, like curls for example you’re not doing anything you might actually do in your real life. When are you ever going to have the need to pick something up and curl it for an actual purpose? The Deadlift develops the muscles you need to actually carry something, like a bucket of water, those heavy grocery bags or your dining room table.

4. Improves Your Grip Strength

Deadlifts are well known for their ability to build and improve your grip strength. Your fingers are literally the only things connecting you to the weight of the bar. Your forearms have to work extremely hard as your weight rises to keep the bar from falling out of your hands. As a result your grip strength improves.

5. Increases Hormones

Doing dead lifts with heavy weight, you can increase the amount of testosterone and growth hormone produced by your body. Testosterone increases muscle growth and improves muscle repair while growth hormone, which is produced by your pituitary gland, promotes tissue healing, bone strength, muscle growth and fat loss.


Functional Training

Whether it’s at the gym or at work, one of the main questions that I am ask is “how much can you bench”. My honest answer is that really have no idea. I haven’t maxed out in the bench press since 2005(455 lbs). I guess I don’t know because I don’t have any reason to even attempt a one rep max. It’s pointless to even try. The only things that come of it is an ego boost and/or injury. To be completely honest a one rep max in the three major lifts(bench press, squat and dead lifts) don’t necessarily determine your true strength. What I am saying that gym lifts don’t always transfer to real life daily activities out side of the gym.

Functional training training are movements that gives you the type of strength that actualy transfer to real life. This is the kind of strength that allows you move furniture, lift heavy suitcases into an overhead bin, or even have the ability to pick up your child. In essence, it improves your coordination, balance, force, power, and endurance. It also helps enhance your ability to perform normal daily activities. In addition to being a big part of Cross Fit programs, functional fitness is often used in clinical programs to help with rehabilitation and independent living for older adults. Squats. The bodyweight squat is one of the very best exercises you can do for the lower body, working the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves. …Lunges. …Push Ups. …Pull Ups. …Rotations.

These are a few examples of functional exercises:

squats, lunges, pull ups, push ups planks
