#005: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Fear Deadlifts 🚫

I know the deadlift exercise can seem intimidating, but trust me, it’s not as scary as it seems.

In fact, it’s a safe and effective way to strengthen your entire body.

Here are three reasons to give it a try:

  • It’s a real-life movement we all do daily, like picking up stuff from the ground.
  • It improves your grip strength, which is helpful if you work with your hands.
  • It also helps improve your posture by strengthening the muscles in your upper back.

To get started, check out my beginner-friendly guide: The Step-By-Step Deadlift Guide Every Beginner Needs.

It includes six simple coaching cues to help you perfect the movement:

  1. Find your footing
  2. Brace your core
  3. Hinge at your hips
  4. Take a comfortable grip length
  5. Turn on your lat muscles
  6. Execute the movement by pulling the slack out of the bar.

Follow these cues, and you’ll be deadlifting like a pro in no time.
