The ‘Deadlift’ or variations of can be used in a number of reasons…. For weightlifting, bodybuilding or even lower back rehabilitation.

When completing a Deadlift, aim to hitch from the hips and maintain a neutral back throughout. Your hips will hitch back slightly as you maintain a slight bend in your knee throughout the movement, this maintains your centre of balance spread evenly across your feet.

A lesser variation can be used to teach appropriate posterior chain strengthening for lower back pain, and provide movement training to use the hips and glutes as the power muscles rather than bending through the lower back.
