Deadlift 101: A Truly Romantic Lift
If properly executed, the deadlift can help you have less fragile joints, build a stronger posterior chain and a body that can handle anything that life throws your way.
Deadlifting is not dangerous – although it can be one of the many intimidating exercises out there. But like many of the exercise movements, it can be easy to get wrong and can injure you if you start to develop bad habits.
CrossFit San Ramon can help you learn the correct techniques and get you on the right track to developing good habits!
