Deadlift refers to the lifting of dead weight, thats a weight with no momentum, such as a barbell lying on the ground. It is one of the most original and common exercises done in strength training.

The ability to bend and straighten under load is one of the most commonly loaded movement patterns we know, and the deadlift loads and trains this exact pattern.

The motto is: Pick something heavy up, and put it back down.

Many will point out that the deadlift is an even greater test of raw strength than the squat. With the squat being the most common staple in all training programs at the YPSI for training the lower body, the deadlift comes a close second. What sets the deadlift apart from the squat is a much greater need for strength and muscular balance to be able to execute the exercise with proper technique. Teaching someone proper deadlift technique with a 60kg barbell is easy. Maintaining proper technique with circa-maximum load is a great challenge. Which everyone has witnessed in gyms all over the world and on youtube. The reason why the technique breaks down is because there are two components of proper exercises technique. 

First, the knowledge on how to properly execute the exercise.

Second, the ability to execute the exercise properly.

Knowledge can be taught. Ability has to be developed. This is why learning the deadlift is less about being taught the proper technique and more about creating strength in the right places to maintain proper posture and execute the deadlift with great technique. All three 6 phase programs that are contained in this and can be trained one after another for a full 1.5 years of training target exactly this. First, the technique is taught. Then the ability is trained. 

Using a progression based on levels and strength benchmarks is the approach I use with all my clients and athletes at the YPSI. Deadlifts a great exercise to train strength. To demonstrate strength. To set the base for explosive strength. And to increase hypertrophy. 

The deadlift is one of the greatest and most fundamental exercise in strength training and has to be a staple of programs design for everyone who has serious strength and hypertrophy goals.

This book is a compendium on the deadlift, highlighting its many benefits and variations and supplying a practical approach to get the most out of your own training at the same time.
