The Deadlift is a foundation exercise for building significant strength and muscular development of almost the entire body but mostly on the posterior chain of muscles. These muscle groups include everything from the Calves, Gluets, Hamstrings, Erector Spinae, Lats, Rhomboids & Trapezius just to name a few.
The Deadlift although a hugely beneficial exercise can be a super dangerous exercise when done incorrectly due to the load that can be placed on the Lumbar Vertebrae.
