The deadlift. Sounds hardcore, doesn’t it? Depending on whether it’s straight-leg or bent-leg and what type of weight you’re using (barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell), there are differences, but let’s just speak in general for simplicity’s sake.
The deadlift is amazing because it is an all-over body movement that has particular benefits for the posterior chain. A well-trained posterior chain can give you a butt-lift, narrower waist, strong hamstrings, lean looking legs, put an end to back fat, and strengthen your posture (reducing aches and pains).

Have a fantastic day!!
