Got Deads In Your Fitness Routine?

If you only had time to do one exercise at the gym and you wanted to work as many muscle groups as possible with that one exercise then you should do deadlifts. They work almost every major muscle group, especially the spinal erectors, lats, forearms, traps, quads, hamstrings, and glutes (buttocks). Several other muscles are involved in stability control, including but not limited to the abs and obliques.  Deads work the entire body!

Try this routine as a circuit:

  • 1 set of deadlifts with a weight you can handle for 10 reps
  • 1 set of 10 pushups
  • 1 set of 10 chin ups
  • Rest 1 to 2 minutes
  • Repeat circuit 3 times
