There have been a lot of misconceptions and myths around women doing weight training as many of us think it can add bulk and make us look ‘manly’. But turns out, weightlifting is equally important for women as it is for men.
Are you still having double thoughts about weight training? Well, we’ve got your back with the motivation to gear up RN! So without further ado, we present five celebrities who not only weight train–but also do deadlifts–to inspire you to take up weights:
1. Anushka Sharma
Recently we saw Anushka Sharma deadlifting and we’re pumped to try it out ourselves! She is one of the fittest actresses in the industry right now and she is proving this all over again by deadlifting a 60 kilo barbell with so much ease.
2. Alia Bhatt
She might be petite but her core strength and the focus with which she works is something to admire! She is giving us major #fitspo by nailing this 70 kilo deadlift! Mind you: this is no easy feat.
3. Disha Patani

4. Katrina Kaif
Thanks to her killer dance moves in kala chasma, she has stolen many hearts. And this is how she remains incredibly fit to show off those abs during her dance moves–by deadlifting!
5. Rakul Preet
She might be a fresh face in the industry, but her zeal isn’t that new. De De Pyaar De actress believes in “strong is sexy” and in her recent Instagram video, she was seen deadlifting a whopping 80 kilos! Inspiring ain’t she?
Still not motivated enough to try deadlifting? Here’s the extra push!
Deadlifting helps you burn more fat than cardio does. It also helps you deal with back pain and improves your posture and stability. It is also a compound exercise that works your glutes, lower backs, shoulders, and hamstrings all at the same time. Isn’t that a great deal?
Deadlifts aren’t that scary, but you need to do them under proper guidance.
