Welcome to the first video in our brand-new seriesfeaturingcalisthenics expert Al Kavaldo. This week, Al demonstrates four alternatives to the deadlift you can do anywhere. These movements are:
- Back bridge: This works the entire posterior chain.
- Single leg deadlift: This requires stability, strength, and control.
- Pistol squat: This works your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and lower back.
- Back lever: This is one of the most challenging movements for your posterior chain.
Nothing can replace the deadlift – but these movements will work all the same muscles, and more. Let us know how you get on with them!
