So, this is maybe a total noob question...but hey, this is the right place to ask, right? Im deadlifting twice a week and i like it.Thats a good thing. I know the DL is one of the most complete exercises available as it works almost the whole body. BUT: as a martial artist who punches, kicks, block punches, and therefore rotates the torso etc etc etc...What are the benefits from deadlifting in martial arts? i know it works your core too, but can anyone be more specific? Aint squats better? If you had to choose between squats and deadlifts for your training program, which one would you choose? (assuming your goal is to perform better in combat sports) Thanks for your inputs.
