Wait, deadlift 500lbs without shoes? You better believe it!

Tony Gentilcore is one of the top strength coaches in the world and a master of the deadlift. According to Tony, he chooses to deadlift without shoes for two reasons.

First, most people wear shoes that have a high heel lift, and that increases the range of motion to pull the bar. Getting out of your shoes puts you closer to the floor! Second, it engages the hamstrings and glutes more — which is very important for the deadlift.
