The Eccentric Dumbbell “DB” Deadlift is one of my “go to” movements for developing lower body strength and power. If you are an endurance athlete, and have not performed any heavy lifting during the race season this should definitely be added to your off-season training program. Likewise, if you are simply trying to improve your health, mobility, and overall strength, add this movement to your training plan.
With this being a strength/power building movement we recommend the following protocol:
3-4 sets of 4-6 repetitions (rest 90-120sec between sets)
