Suitcase Deadlifts are performed just like a regular deadlift except all the weight. They’re especially great at building leg, back and core strength and stability. If you’re an athlete who wants a lighter (deload, injury, etc), but still very challenging variation of deadlifting.
Principles of technique:
- Same as deadlift
- Straight back
- Resist bending to side
- Weight on your heels
- Mostly vertical shin
- Scale as needed (elevate weight)
A truly great addition to your program to increase your leg, back and core strength.
5 x 5/side is a favorite of mine; try it out!
