The Dead Lift is another one of the core lifts that every athlete should be familiar with. Dead Lifts are a great way to build strength in your core, quadriceps, and glutes. It's also a great exercise in body control -- a good form is one of the most important parts of the lift to keep in mind. A Dead Lift with poor form is one of the easiest ways to injure your back -- so when you're doing the lift be sure to lift slow and steady, and really focus on form and delivery of power in the proper way.
Why Dead Lift?
The Dead Lift works muscles that are key pieces to the muscle development that all sports use. It's one of the powerlifts that are featured at the Olympics, and not just any workout makes it to that level of competition. It's a super functional workout that builds a whole ton of strength, and is hard to replace when done properly. When being done by a team, keep track of your Personal Records and make a competition to see who can max the highest!
