Dead Lift (Deadlifts)

Hit those Dead Lifts,

Strength, Power, Endurance are just some of the benefits of doing Dead Lifts (Deadlifts).

It’s a great exercise to reinforce your upper back, lower back, quadriceps, booty (gluteus), shoulders, knee tendons, and forearm muscles all in one exercise.

Now of course the main muscles that get the bulk of work are the back, quads, and knees but, it’s nice that the love is being spread around.

The Deadlift is all about prepping your body to be able to do static movement. There are and will be moments in our lives where we have to bust a move without warning…without a head start.

A Static movement is one that relies on reflex without the assistance of a jump start or a running start.

You just have to lift the weight with little to no momentum.

Some people say Dead Lifts (Deadlifts) SUCK and are bad for your back… that’s like saying picking up a pencil you dropped or a ‘can good’ that rolled on the floor is bad for your back.

Deadlifts are NOT bad for your back. Deadlifts actually help strengthen your lower back muscles, when done properly. Deadlifts keep your body prepped for everyday “pickups.”

Deadlifts are great! A significant number of Women love how they work, tone, and plump their glutes.

Doing Deadlifts WRONG is what’s bad for your back. Just like lifting a bag of groceries wrong is bad for your back

It’s very important to keep the proper form because what’s the point of doing any exercise if you’re not going to do it right.

You can seriously hurt yourself doing any exercise with ill or improper form.

Let’s be clear.

Although, the knees and gluteus get some love during the Deadlift exercise… Dead Lifts are NOT Squats.

Men and Women… amateur to pro both enjoy the effects and benefits of Dead Lifts.

Don’t let the Arnold Schwarzenegger looking guy or gal (☺) intimidate you because they’re lifting 500lbs.

You can do Dead Lifts using 8lb Dumbbells or Kettle Bells as long as your form is correct and you’re feeling the burn.

That’s how you get healthy, balanced, favorable results.

Lord You Raised the Dead
So I aint Gotta Trip

It’s by your strength
I get this weight up to my hips

Keep the perfect form
Don’t let my back slip

Now that’s what I call
A Perfect Dead Lift

Lord Your Ways Are Far Beyond Me
You Took My Sin Far Beyond Me

Lord Your Ways Are Far Beyond Me
You Lifted Sins Weight Far Beyond Me

Lord You Lift The Dead
That Was Me

Lord You Raise the Dead
Now I’m Free

As as the west is from the east
You Lifted Sin From Me
