Why Aren't You Deadlifting?
Monday, June 24, 2013
There are few magic bullets when it comes to diet and exercise. I would consider vegetables and lean meat the 1-2 punch when it comes to getting your diet in order. Imagine trying to diet without lean meat and vegetables. Instead you went on the Twinkie diet. Sure, you might lose weight (if you ate few enough Twinkies) but it would probably be a pretty miserable experience.
Like meat and vegetables are to diet, the deadlift is to strength training. What muscles does the deadlift work?
Oh, how about damn near all of them.
The equipment required to dead is a bar and some plates, which should be common at every gym and is also something that can be had at the house.
If your current program doesn't have deadlifts, question your program.
