In this episode we talk about why the deadlift is helpful for climbers. More specifically, we’ll be delving into the Romanian deadlift, which I believe to be the most useful for climbers. We’ll get into the reasons why in a bit, however, if you’re curious about the other two forms, you can find a bunch of information and instruction on how to do them in the show notes. Most of what we talk about in this video will be applicable to all three types of deadlifting, though, so no worries there. We’ll discuss the specific anatomical benefits of deadlifting, the proper technique so you can perform it safely, and how to integrate it into your training routine for max climbing gainz.
