Mums and deadlifts

This is a frequently asked question from my clients: ‘What’s the best exercise for mums after squat and push-up?’

I’d say, ‘Deadlift.’

deadlift

Mummies, how many times a day do you pick your child off the floor, lift your child and put in car seat, bend down to tidy toys? 10? 15? Probably more than that. Well, having a strong back will certainly make these movements easier. Deadlift is an awesome exercise to achieve this. Picking things up with proper form will become second nature.

If you’re new to this exercise, always ask your trainer for a demo and check if it is suitable for you.
