On Wednesday’s we complain about it only being Wednesday, and we deadlift. Here’s a few sets from clients, and myself today pullin on some weights.
Okay SO do you have to deadlift to get “fit”? HELL NO. Do you have to deadlift to be a great athlete CERTAINLY NOT, do you have to deadlift to get big and strong? NAH. Deadlifting is not for everyone. BUT if you aim to improve your fitness, a good goal to start with is aiming to pick up 1.5 x your body weight in some fashion, with a form that is safe for you. This is not just a goal for weight lifters, bodybuilders, and meat heads, this is something you should be able to do if you aim to be a healthy, able bodied individual as the hip hinge movement (deadlift) is something that will transfer well to Almost all qualities of fitness. Again you don’t have to deadlift, but you should definitely be picking up a challenging weight with purpose at least once a week if you care about your body. ———————————————————
