There is no doubt that deadlifts are an amazing workout technique that helps increase your muscle endurance and strengthens your entire body. If you look at the posture, and ergonomic motion of deadlifts exercises, you’ll notice that it is highly beneficial for people needing to lift heavy items or patients at work; jobs requiring repetitive squatting and lifting such as firefighters, warehouse workers, and package handlers, etc. It is also an easy workout to perform but the key is maintaining a straight back to keep your spine aligned correctly.
To perform the basic technique:
Start by picking up a barbell from the floor, lift the bar to your knees, hold, then lower the bar and return it to the floor maintaining proper posture all the way through.
Proper posture in this position means:
- planting your feet flat on the floor,
- keeping a straight back,
- pushing off to lift with your legs,
- putting your weight on your heels,
- maintaining this posture all the way through.
Safely try the deadlifts next time you are at the gym or working out from home.
