The deadlift, being no more than the safe and sound approach by which any object should be lifted from the ground, keeps company with standing, running, jumping, and throwing for functionality but imparts quick and prominent athletic advantage like no other exercise. It is unrivaled in its simplicity and impact while unique in its capacity for increasing head-to-toe strength.

I try this movement but if you don't do it properly, it can ruin your back.

Anyone reading this lacking the benefit of proper coaching should be aware that you can tie your back into knots doing it wrong by being forward onto your toes. That happened to me until a coach said "stay on your heals". Fixed, instantly. Now I'm happily at 2x bodyweight, and it feels easy. All those deadlifts in the open were a breeze.

Some people call the deadlift dangerous. Think those people will ever need to pick something up off the ground? It's dangerous NOT to train the deadlift.

Once upon a time it was called the Health Lift, true story. It was a lot harder to villainize back then, I'm guessing.

Rory McKernan. No it wasn't. Do you have a citation for that?

The only dangerous dead is the turtle-back deads. It's not only painful, but also painful to watch.
