Other than the obvious benefit of increased strength associated with deadlifts, there are very functional advantages to incorporating them into your workouts.
- The practice of completing deadlifts helps improve your grip strength.
- Deadlifts work multiple muscle groups at one time, including your core which is essential to being able to perform many daily activities safely and without injury, as well as your back muscles which help improve your posture.
- Your heart health will improve too!
So don’t let the name scare you, deadlifts can be a great addition to most workouts. Ask your trainer to see if they are right for you!
