Why is it called a “Deadlift”? Popularly it is known to derive from the fact that the movement starts with the load at a “dead” stop on the ground. Or this alternative - According to myth, the Deadlift got its name somewhere in ancient Rome, after military battles when young Roman soldiers would go out into the field to lift their fallen comrades onto wagons to later be buried. Literally, “lifting the dead.”
