For some, it may be easier to start here first with a kettlebell deadlift. Same principles apply as above.
And no, you don’t have to learn to lift 800 gazillion pounds. Although it would pay off to develop the ability to lift more than you’re reguarly required to during your normal day, wouldn’t it? That way everyday activity, like carrying groceries or mowing the lawn becomes a breeze for the most part, right?
These movements and exercises, when mastered, produce and develop a strength and efficiency of movement unrivaled by any other exercise, except maybe the squat. Plus, it’s something we all need to do as people. No, it is not unsafe or horrible for your back. Learning incorrectly or lifting improperly is though. Problem is, it takes time and commitment to learn to do this right…….
Please Note: If you have a history of back problems, particularly disc issues, it is best to consult a physical therapist first, before starting this or any lifting program!
