EP.56 – Is the Deadlift Dead?

Podcast (14 minutes) – Deadlifting is very much a sacred exercise in the gym. Does it really deserve such a high rank?

We explain why we prefer the Corelift (Trap bar deadlift) due to its increased safety, better athletic transfer, increased glute activation, and higher power output due to a better ability to harness the intent to move concept.



Some resources:
