Are Deadlift’s Killing Your Gains?

❌ ‘I hurt my back deadlifting’

❌‘I don’t want to deadlift, I’ll hurt my back’

🏋🏻‍♂️ The deadlift is one of the most powerful compound exercises when executed correctly. It engages multiple muscles of the upper/lower body and anterior/posterior chain. This makes the Deadlift one of the best way to build overall body strength

👶 The Deadlift is quite a functional exercise and can be translated to everyday tasks such as lifting up children and other objects

🦵🏻 The Deadlift requires deep control and stabilisation of the abdominal, gluteal, pelvic and lumbar spine musculature. Studies show that because of this, deadlifts can be beneficial in the prevention and reduction of low back pain

✅ Deadlift injuries are due to improper technique and too much weight lifted, NOT because of the exercise itself. It is important to build up to a barbell Deadlift through other progressive exercises. This will help perfect the technique and prevent injury

Here are a couple of progressive Deadlift exercises you can perform to help perfect your technique

1️⃣ Hip Hinge with Dowel
2️⃣ Raised Kettlebell Deadlift
3️⃣ Normal Kettlebell Deadlift
4️⃣ Barbell Deadlift

⚠️ Remember to consult a healthcare professional before commencing these exercises
