Deadlift should be an important part of everyone’s workout, especially those chasing strength gains. In globo health clubs it has seen a major decline and unfairly received bad reputation. Not surprisingly in this same health clubs trainers regularly promote not to squat below 90. COME ON… I have also had doctors tell me that I should not deadlift or squat and they will problems to the knees and cause back problems. Seriously? There is a saying amongst some in the strength trainers, “there are few poor lifts, only poor lifting technique.” Preform deadlifts with proper technique and you will not only get a strong back but also prevent injuries to the back and lessen any lower back pain.
