MY 3 GO TO EXERCISES PART 2:: The Deadlift

Ahhh, the deadlift! This is one of my favorite exercises. You get so many muscles engaged and worked but it also really helps with breathing. Form is extremely important while performing the deadlift. You want to make sure the head is lifted and spine is straight so you don’t put any strain on the back. I am not a fan of making videos but, for this series I felt like it was necessary so I can go in depth with form and show exactly how to perform the exercises correctly. 

Lets dig into the muscles the are used during the deadlift, then you’ll understand why it’s not only one of my favorites but also a great exercise if you are in a time crunch. 

You are working the following muscles::

Gluteus Maximus (Butt)

Quadriceps (Upper Front legs)

Adductor Magnus (Inner Thigh)

Hamstrings (Upper back of legs)

Erector Spinae (lower back)

Trapezius, upper (upper neck muscles)

See why I love it?! Okay, grab a mirror or friend and get your deadlift on!  

Happy Deadlifting!
