Deadlift Variations:


Now that we’ve covered some of the deadlifting basics, here are a few variations you can use to improve your conventional deadlift and the reasons why they will help.


-Rack pulls: help with various sticking points you identify in your pull


-Straight-legged deadlift: emphasize lower back and hamstrings


-Romanian Deadlift: emphasize glutes, lower back, and pull heavier weight


-Snatch Grip Deadlift: emphasize the upper back muscles, and challenge grip strength


-Deficit Deadlift: makes it harder to initially lift off the floor which makes it easier to lift weight off the floor when not pulling from a deficit.
