Dead Lifts are sometimes a forgotten exercise in Football Strength Training. For Offense and Defensive Linemen the Dead Lift provides a tremendous amount of Ground Based Strength. Developing the Muscles of the Legs, Lower & Upper Back, and the overall Stress on the Body is un matched. Technique, Leverage, and Position are paramount in this movement. Training this exercise for Athletics as opposed to Competition Dead Lift are very different. Athletes can’t compromise Technique or Position with this Exercise. Competition Dead Lifters and Powerlifters can get away with a little looser Position. Here are two great examples of how it should be down. Kevin Ashak is here Dead Lifting 250 kilos. He is 320 lbs and 6’1. Craig Rintoul is 5’6 and 175 lbs and Dead Lifting 220 kilos.
