4. Work Multiple Muscle Groups At The Same Time
Here’s the list – they work your core, hamstrings, glutes, lower back, traps and they work your shoulders. They also help to work your forearms and increase your grip strength, which isn’t something that we think of. A strong grip will help you lift heavier weights.
It’s like doing a combination of exercise at once.
5. Increase Strength
As a woman, you want to be strong, you want to be able to pull yourself up if you need to. You want to be able to lift things if you have too. Doing deadlift is going to help you become stronger so that you can do these things.
Properly executing the deadlift will allow you to build a stronger posterior chain and a body that can handle whatever life throws at you.
6. Real-Life Applications
Doing deadlifts is not just an exercise that you do at the gym, it has many real-life applications. If you look at the way this woman is standing in the above picture, she’s bending down to pick something up. You bend down to pick up your children in a similar position.
Doing deadlifts is going help you become stronger when you lift up other weights in a safer way because all of these muscles are going to be activated when you deadlift. They automatically get activated when in the same position in real life.
7. It’s a cardio workout
Deadlifts is also a cardio workout. Lifting a weight and going up and down, when performed to the right intensity, deadlifts can really work the cardio-respiratory stamina. You will find yourself huffin and puffin afterwards whether if you’re a beginner or experienced.
Another great benefit of deadlifts is they are a great exercise to target and tone your butt. If you want tone your lower glutes and hamstring area instead of having them saggy and droopy, deadlift can help you with that.
Deadlifts is one of those exercises that you don’t have to be super strong or you could do this as a beginner.
You start of light with any exercise that you do, especially if you’re just beginning. Focus on quality not quantity.
It’s not that deadlifting is a dangerous exercise but like with any movement, deadlifting wrong can be.
