The traditional deadlift. Strength and power development of the lower limb is achieved with the deadlift. Grips: Can be executed with a neutral or reverse grip (when loading). When loading heavy with reverse grip it is wise to alternated between the reverse hands to ensure stability of the upper back and shoulders
Trap Bar Deadlift
Fantastic variation to the normal deadlift, especially for learners and adolescents. The exercises centre of mass shifts backwards inline with the legs as opposed to being infront of the shins with a normal deadlift. Therefore, there is less potential for flexion of the lumbar spine which may be a safer more effective option for athletes.
Stiff Leg Deadlift
A powerful low back and hamstring strengthening exercise. Caution should be taken with this exercise, if there is not enough flexibility through hamstrings this will be very difficult. IMPORTANT: Must maintain a Neutral Lumbar Spine throughout motion, Do not Hyperflex or Hyperextend.
Single Leg Romanian Deadlift
Single Leg Romanian Deadlift is a brilliant proprioceptive strength and stability exercise. It targets the hamstrings and lower leg by eccentrically contracting whilst challenging the balance of the body. It is a fantastic trunk strengthening exercise also, as it requires good core stability to stabilize the weights in hands. Done with a Barbell in the video, can also be done with Dumbbells or Kettlebells for less or more challenge. Variation includes lowering deeper to a deadlift position - Therefore, Single Leg Deadlift.
