Correct Deadlift form is taught in all of our youth programs from a very early age. Kids need to pick stuff up (ever asked them to tidy their room or help out in the garden?) so they may as well learn to do it correctly – just because it may be a barbell or other object in a gym, doesn’t make it “unsafe” to do it as an adolescent.
The deadlift requires us to incorporate our entire body to perform the lift; therefore, engaging the largest muscles in our body which helps to make us stronger. It is also one of the best ways to develop a stronger posterior chain (glutes, lower back, hamstrings, etc.) which is not only essential for athletic performance, but very handy in day day life.
