LiftRite Video Guide: The Deadlift - Part 1!

Watch as Jim Britain guides Josh Griffith through the basics of performing the ever popular king of all exercises the deadlift. Also learn proper lifting techniques, exercise variations, and injury prevention! Tune in now...

Episode #1: Deadlift Part 1

In the first installment of LiftRite with Jim and Josh, we will explain why the deadlift is the true King of All Exercises. While it is true that the squat does rank as one of the best size builders (and on this basis alone should be included in everyone's program), the deadlift, in my opinion, builds the upper and lower body like no other movement.

Furthermore, deadlifting will strengthen the entire back and its surrounding muscles, making this lift great for rehabilitative, and preventative, purposes. In fact, the deadlift is the most effective exercise for building the core strength that supports all other major muscle groups.

Core strength (core pertaining to the central muscles of the body; lower back, glutes and the abdominal region) is a very important health component, in that it supports the body in almost every movement and position, and the deadlift is the key core strength building movement.

While there are many great compound exercises (the squat and bench press for example), the deadlift for a variety of reasons is special, and an essential addition to any program. Still not convinced?
