5 Reasons to deadlift!

1. Build up your middle back with this exercise in conjunction with all your lat pull downs and chin-ups to create symmetry and better balance from behind.
2. Increase the strength of your back to prevent injuries. You only have ONE back and ONE spine. Make it strong, flexible and resistant to injury and you will enjoy exercise for your entire life.
3. Create a strong and tight core. A tight core is crucial in order to execute proper deadlift technique.
4. Equal focus on concentric and eccentric phase of the exercise enabling increase gains for strength.
5. Precursor to olympic lifts. Get your technique right and increase your strength and you have opened an avenue for new exercises and the next level for better sport performance and body conditioning.

Perform deadlifts with barbells or dumbbells. I personally prefer dumbbells because a greater number of motor neurons are activated allowing for increased gains for strength and other neural adaptations.
