Kettlebell Deadlift Benefits

The deadlift is an incredibly functional, hip hinge exercise that is excellent for building size and strength in the posterior chain.

It may have a frightening name, but the deadlift is the name of the movement, not the implement.

Many automatically assume the barbell when discussing the deadlift, but the deadlift is an extremely functional movement, with real world applications.

It can be performed with a variety of implements, but for the sake of this article we will focus on the Kettlebell variation.

Use any of these movements as an accessory to your hip hinge training, or a replacement to mix things up from the barbell.

Variation #1: Double Kettlebell Suitcase Deadlift


Variation #2: Single Leg Kettlebell Deadlift


Variation #4: 2-Hand Kettlebell Deadlift


Variation #4: Sumo Kettlebell Deadlift


Variation #5: Kettlebell Suitcase Deadlift


Variation #6: Crush Grip Kettlebell Deadlift
