The deadlift is often crowned the king of total-body exercises. Pulling big numbers off the floor translates to better core, back, leg, and grip strength as well as overall conditioning. The result? You’re stronger and leaner than before. Lifting heavier loads also helps to switch up your routine and lead to bigger gains in muscle.
How it Works
To develop a big deadlift, your plan should include multiple deadlift variations and accessory lifts to maximize your strength. This plan focuses on building strength in the hamstrings and glutes along with the rest of the body. It also helps to build core strength – a must-have to prevent injury when pulling heavy weight.
Perform the following workouts once per week with at least a day of rest in between.
How to Do it:
Rest 2-3 minutes between sets for the main exercise and 90 seconds between the accessory lifts.
