Literally pulling something
So yesterday I was setting up my deadlift but the bar was kinda crowding something on the floor, so I dragged it. Just grabbed one of the sides and pulled. I wonder why literally pulling something in that manner isn't a recommended lift. Or is it? I don't think there's anything in the gym that I've seen that would replicate that effort. Maybe grabbing something and using your legs and back to pull it is too much a weak-female thing? It seems like a useful strength to build to me. You never know when you're going to have to drag the dead body to the trunk, you know, like after you finally beat him up with your rolling pin and stab him with your kitchen knife. (Woops. TMI.) Does anyone literally pull and drag stuff around? What do you use?
