In Defense of Deficit Deadlifts

Why Should You Do These?

They’ll make you stronger. If you’re physically capable of pulling from a deficit, you should. By putting yourself at a biomechanical disadvantage – as you are during a pull from a deficit – you’ll get stronger throughout the whole range of the lift, thereby improving your ability to get the bar moving off the floor when you pull from the ground.
