Busted. The truth of this sentence is: BAD deadlifts are BAD for my back. Let's face it, any exercise, when poorly performed, can wreak havoc on your body. It's more often a case of NOT READY, when it comes to lifting.
Deadlifts are actually one of the best lower back strengthening and stabilizing exercises you can incorporate into you low back rehab program. We are biased towards the kettlebell deadlift for rehab, as the weight is more central and has a larger real life carry-over effect, but this doesn't discount the benefits of your barbell or dumbbell deadlifts.
It's essential to work within your skill level to build proper technique and strength to avoid injury.
Deadlifts not only work multiple muscles from the ground up, the deadlift can specifically developed your core muscles through building intraabdominal pressure. This is extremely helpful in protecting your spine, along with strengthen your lower back muscles in this exercise. This ability in exercise is unique to the deadlift AND squat.
Research has shown that deadlifts work the abdominal muscles more than ab-specific exercises, with greater protective benefits to your spine!
The next time you're told that deadlifts are bad for you, understand that BAD deadlifts are bad for you and find someone who can teach you a PROPER deadlift so that they are more proper for you!
Happy lifting, fam!
