It involves lifting a barbell from the ground to the hips and then lowered back to the ground. It is not the most complicated move, but it uses nearly every muscle group in the body. It does not only benefit by strengthening the appropriate muscles, but it also helps with poor posture and back pain. The deadlift allows the body to lift a heavy object from the ground in the most efficient way possible.
