Iron Camp will be holding our inaugural Deadlift Party in support of PAWS of Greenwich.
At Iron Camp, we believe deadlifts are the purest form of strength. It is also the most functional exercise we can do, since we all pick things up off the ground.
Lifters will go in order of their listed deadlift one rep max. There will be two warm up stations. Once the bar is loaded, the lifter will have sixty seconds to start the deadlift.
"Lower-back strength is an important component of sports conditioning. The ability to maintain a rigid lumbar spine under a load is critical for both power transfer and safety. The deadlift builds back strength better than any other exercise, bar none. And back strength built with the deadlift is useful: while the bar is the most ergonomically friendly tool for lifting heavy weights, a 405-pound barbell deadlift makes an awkward 85-pound box more manageable." - Mark Rippetoe
