I love the type of exercise that targets multiple muscle groups, giving you more clout for your minute of exercise. The deadlift fits the bill, doing so much for the muscle groups that compose so much of your total muscle mass - hamstrings, glutes, hip flexors and lower back. What's more, the deadlift is a fantastic strength builder, body stabilizer and - if done right (otherwise don't do it!), it's therapeutic for bad posture. The deadlift is also a functional fitness exercise, for it's the way you should lift any everyday object like a suitcase or a pair of water jugs, not just barbells and kettlebells.
Today, we'll teach you how to do a deadlift. First, see the deadlift preparation vid, then scroll down to see the deadlift instructional vid. Don't forget to pray a few words before your workout and to thank Hashem after your workout. Go for it!
