5 DEADLIFT VARIATIONS FOR MAGICAL BUTT CHEEKS....But wait, we decided to extend it to 8 variations!! Deadlifts do, in fact, make your butt cheeks magical. Deadlifts get you strong as a fully grown mountain troll without having to look or smell or drool like one. You can kettlebell deadlift, trap bar deadlift, conventional deadlift, sumo deadlift. They’re all great. None are inherently better or worse than another. It all depends on what feels best for you.
