Anyone who knows me knows that I deadlift 3-4 x a week. This is because I’m naturally very quad dominant and was weak in my posterior chain. I’ve been deadlifting consistently for a year and a half messing about with different sets and reps. Ranging from 6 sets of 3-4 reps with heavy loads to 5 sets of 8-10 reps, swapping about each month to keep it super challenging.
It's no secret that the deadlift (when performed correctly) is one of the best exercises you can do for overall strength and muscle mass.
But what are the benefits 😃
Increased fat burning - Recruits the most muscles therefore helps build the most muscle and in turn will burn a shed load of body fat.
Improved posture - Improves core stability and targets all the muscles responsible for good posture.
Better grip strength - Your holding on to a load of weight with just your hands (it’s helped my pull ups immensely 🙌🏻) .
Prevents injury by strengthening connective tissue around the joints involved.
It’s also pretty safe movement (as long as performed correctly) considering you can’t really get pinned under any weight
Teaching one of my newest clients how to efficiently target the GLUTES 🍑 using the Sumo Deadlift. I’ve noticed in this industry that a lot of women are quad dominant, and don’t know, or understand the proper use of their hips during Resistance Training. Understand one of the most efficient movements to pump blood into the GLUTES 🍑 during training happens when you extend your hips. If you don’t understand the proper mechanics on certain exercises I would suggest reaching out to a professional to help get you too your goals.
Cześć Wszystkim 😁
Jako, że dodaję pierwszego posta, chciałbym Wam coś o sobie powiedzieć.
Jestem studentem Politechniki Rzeszowskiej, swoją przygodę z treningami zacząłem 3 lata temu.
Z powodu wypadku musiałem samodzielnie rozpocząć rehabilitację aby móc powrócić na nogi. Zajęcia te szybko przerodziły się w pasję, którą kontynuuję do dziś.
Dziś przedstawiam Wam trening ciągów w wersji sumo 😊
