No Dead Lifting, or Else!

Just when I thought I'd seen everything in this health/wellness/fitness industry, a certain gym franchise has now made it against the rules to do dead lifts.  My question is, how are you expected to pick up dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, or even a dropped towel on the floor without actually doing a dead lift?  Dead lifting is one of the most fundamental movements necessary to be human.  The rules in my gym are simple: shoes are optional (because it is best to train as close to barefoot as possible) and no TV's.  Everything else is not only allowed, but encouraged.  Hence why our clients see results.  They have no rules holding back their natural human movements.  We even have a pogo stick for anyone daring enough to try it. Imagine walking into one of these big box gyms and seeing someone on a pogo stick? You would think someone lost their mind and the gym insurance police would be running over to stop them and put them in fitness jail.
