This week’s video focuses on deadlift variations for a strong low back. All too often, patients come in with misinformed beliefs about exercise, especially the deadlift. Some think it’s bad for the spine, some think they should never be doing them, etcetera. The truth is, when done correctly the deadlift and is a great exercise.

As a chiropractor, we should be appreciative of any exercise that strengthens the low back. There aren’t many better ways for us to build up low back and lower body strength and endurance than picking up heavy things and putting them back down.

With all of the sitting we do nowadays, training the posterior chain is more important than ever. The deadlift allows us to do this while using more weight than any other movement. This actually ends up training the posterior side of our bodies from our feet up to our traps. It’s hard to get more “bang for your buck” with an exercise than that.

Additionally, since it is what’s known as a “multi joint exercise,” it fires up our metabolism more than other static exercises, which makes it helpful for those looking to lose weight or burn calories.
