The word deadlift references one of man’s oldest movements; picking up a static object from the ground. Even today man cannot get away from the functional task on an almost daily basis. Much like the squat, the deadlift exercise has several variations but differs in the fact that the load does not change its location. During the squat exercise the resistance is moved around the body to change the muscle activation emphasis, whereas in the deadlift the body makes the adjustments around the load. The three most common exercise variations include the traditional deadlift, modified deadlift, and Romanian deadlift; all of which use a straight bar as the requisite loading medium. Of interest, each of these exercises can be further manipulated to produce a more specialized, desired stress by changing the loading conditions (i.e., dumbbells) hand positions, and symmetry of the lift.
