The Deadlift is one of my favorite exercises for building total body strength and correcting many of the posture problems caused by sitting at a desk all day. When done right, the Deadlift recruits every muscle in the body, and builds a strong back and glutes. If the chest and biceps are the show muscles, the back, glutes, and legs are the go muscles. Start with your feet slightly narrower than shoulder width. Grip the bar right over your shoelaces, dip your hips down until your spine is totally neutral.

The football season was great and as it came to an end I was preparing for mysophomore year. I knew it was a long shot for a sophomore to be asked to join the varsity football team,but I was willing to do whatever it took to move up the ranks.

I knew I had what it tookto play football with the big boys, all I needed to do was gain some extra size andstrength. In my mind it was already done, I saw myself as an equal to the athletes that were twoor three years older than me, many of them outweighing me by pounds or more. On the weekends my superstrong, bodybuilding uncle would visit his sister, my mom,at our house on Long Island.

Quickly he realized that his young nephews needed to liftsome serious weight to take advantage of their adolescentgrowth spurts and set them on a path towards athletic success. With our home gym set my uncle began toteach me and my brother how to lift for increased size andstrength.

He also designed a very detailed meal plan for us to follow that allowed me togain almost 30 pounds in less than six months. The program we followed consisted of squats, deadlifts, bench presses, overheadpresses, bent over rows, chin-ups and power cleans.

My brother and I would follow this full body 5 x5 workout on Tuesdays and Thursdays, on Saturdays my uncle would come over andtrain with us. Although I was not a starter on the varsity football team, I reached my goal and I have my uncle to thank for that.

Although it is possible thatthe weightlifters and strongmen of the early 20 th century used it, because these guysexperimented with just about everything. The loads used are heavy enough to stimulate the central nervous system, while thevolume is high enough to cause a hypertrophy response.
