The deadlift is a weight training exercise in which a loaded barbell or bar is lifted off the ground to the level of the hips, torso perpendicular to the floor, before being placed back on the ground. It is one of the three powerlifting exercises, along with the squat and bench press.
Here’s how to Deadlift with proper form:
Stand with your mid-foot under the barbell.
Bend over and grab the bar with a shoulder-width grip.
Bend your knees until your shins touch the bar.
Lift your chest up and straighten your lower back.
Take a big breath, hold it, and stand up with the weight.
Is conventional deadlift harder than sumo?
Conventional deadlifts are harder than sumo deadlifts. It’s harder to keep the back flat, it’s harder to extend the hips, and the bar must move a longer distance. They also hurt worse, make you sorer, and just generally leave you more fatigued. But like most things in life, doing the hard thing pays off.
What are the advantages of deadlifts?
INCREASES CORE STRENGTH AND POSTURE
Deadlifting can increase core strength, core stability and improve your posture. Deadlifting trains most of the muscles in the legs, lower back and core. These are all muscles responsible for posture, which will help keep your shoulders, spine, and hips in alignment.
