Not only is it healthy, it is essential.

It’s not a lift reserved for the gym, it’s a lift that you are required to perform every day.

Learning how to deadlift and developing functional strength in this range of motion makes you healthier and safer day-to-day.

Loss of strength and range of motion is debilitating and leaves you incapable of carrying out basic day-to-day activities.

I for one love the direction CrossFit HQ is going.

We don’t need to focus on helping CrossFit athletes get a 600lb deadlift, we need to focus on helping our grand mothers pick up their infant grand children off the floor.

We need to help you safely pick up your groceries, your suitcase, your keys or your puppy.

When you develop strength and confidence in the deadlift, you improve every aspect of your life.
