Whether you’re Eddie Hall or a lifting newbie, every now and then, we all need a practical reminder of why we lift. Maybe your reason is to look good or to set records or to overcome an injury.

But whatever your reason for weightlifting, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Smart lifting makes every day activities easier.

Not sure what we mean? In the video below, Nicole Delegas, a Strength and Conditioning coach at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning (MBSC), explains the practical reasons for lifting.

Watch Nicole’s video below:

All those deadlifts that you do make laundry baskets and boxes (and maybe even the Christmas tree that you store in your attic) a breeze to lift.

And those turkish get-ups? They make it easier to actually get off the couch and turn down the tv volume instead of bursting your eardrums.

These skills are an everyday reality when you lift. So there’s no need for #goals, just get out there and start lifting!
