Is deadlift the only back exercise you need?
The deadlift should not be the only tool for growing your back. Because the upper back muscles mostly work to stabilize your hold on the barbell throughout the lift, they don’t experience the same muscle contraction and range of motion needed for hypertrophy as with other back exercises.
What is the king of all exercises?
The squat is frequently referred to as the king of all exercises. And for a good reason. It works some of the biggest muscles in the body, such as the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and core. Strengthening these muscles allows for easy movement and prevents injuries.
Can I get big just doing deadlifts?
The deadlift does a good job of bulking up our superficial back muscles. The deadlift trains our hips through a deep range of motion, making it perfect for building bigger glutes. While doing that, the weight is held in our grips and hanging from our traps and rear delts, with our lats pulling it in close.
