Deadlifts can be a great exercise for all people to do, as long as they are performed with proper form.
Deadlifts can help to build strength in the back, legs, and core, and they can also improve posture. However, if deadlifts are performed with improper form, they can put unnecessary strain on the back and may lead to injury. It's important to pay extra attention to form when doing deadlifts to avoid this. It may also be helpful to start with a lighter weight and gradually increase the weight as you get stronger and more comfortable with the movement.
It's also a good idea to consult with a trainer or fitness professional who can provide guidance on how to properly perform deadlifts.
We at CrossFit Viroqua start everyone with a PVC Pipe. Form and technique first, then intensity of weight and repetitions.
It is great to also remember, each day we pick up an item off the floor, we are doing a deadlift, we teach you how to do it correctly so you do not hurt yourself doing everyday tasks.
