Why the burpee deadlift is the best deadlift to do in competitive group format.
The kettlebell burpee squat deadlift is one of my favourite kettlebell combos when it comes to technique, high reps and kettlebell deadlifts in a competitive group format, and here’s why.
- the burpee breaks up the movement which is great in high reps deadlifting
- the burpee forces the kettlebell dead on the ground each time
- the burpee forces control, as uncontrolled and too fast movement with the burpee (plank and kick back) is potential for injury
- the squat asks the athlete to keep their torso upright, putting emphasis on the legs, which is especially good for newbies and/or high reps as the hip hinge will usually turn into lifting with the back
Fact: Did you know the real burpee is just a plank to standing, no push-up, no jump, no nothing added? Yup, it’s true, go and do your research. The CrossFit Burpee is with tricep push-up and jump. The most common burpee is a jump burpee.
