5 REASONS DEADLIFTS ARE GREAT FOR HARDGAINER BODYBUILDERS

Deadlifts are a very important exercise. Some people are scared to do them because they fear injury. If deadlifts are done correctly, assuming you have no underlying medical issues, they are perfectly fine to do. One word of warning first though – make sure you are doing them correctly. Have a search on Youtube for some instruction videos if you don’t have an experienced weight training buddy!


REASON #1: DEADLIFTS ARE HANDY ‘IN REAL LIFE’


Once you start deadlifting you will start to notice that whenever you lift anything heavy it is similar to doing a deadlift. You may have found lifting large objects hard before. Once you get your weight up in deadlifts, anything large and heavy that you move outside of the gym will be easy and feel natural.

REASON #2: DEADLIFTS CAN BE DONE BY YOURSELF

Bench press, squats and many other compound exercises are not really safe without a spotter. Deadlifts are though – if anything goes wrong you can just release your grip and let bar fall.

REASON #3: DEADLIFTS USE MORE MUSCLE GROUPS THAN ANY OTHER EXERCISE

Deadlifts work a whole chain of muscle groups, all in a simple action.
  • Quads
  • Glutes
  • Hamstrings
  • Lower Back
  • Middle + Upper Traps
  • Abs
  • Lats
  • Calves

REASON #4: INCREASED GRIP STRENGTH

When you do a Deadlift, your hands must grip and hold onto a large amount of weight. With squats your hands are there to make sure the bar doesn’t fall. With bench press and shoulder press there isn’t an awful lot of grip strength involved (when compared to deadlifts). All that weight held tight in your hands means your grip strength will go through the roof.

REASON #5: OVERALL MUSCLE INCREASE!

The main and major reason that deadlifts will help hardgaining bodybuilders is that it really helps build up muscle!
