The Best Socks for Deadlifting & Powerlifting

Try a pair of Pedestals for your next deadlift session and notice the difference!

Deadlifts are a great way to improve your overall strength & power. Building from your core, this workout is a favorite among powerlifters and regular gym goers alike. A proper deadlift is all about stability. You want to keep the bar close to your body to maintain an equal center of gravity. 

Experience True Comfort, Stability, & Practicality

Swapping your shoes for a pair of high performance lifting socks like Pedestals comes with a list of benefits. Going barefoot means better balance & stability which means a more productive and safer workout.

Why choose socks over shoes for deadlifting?

Deadlifting barefoot is lifting in its truest form. However, sometimes the bar will rub up on your shins which can get uncomfortable - and sometimes even painful. That’s why a pair of long socks for deadlifts can come in handy. 

Pedestals really are the best powerlifting socks you can buy

We feel strongly about ditching your shoes and choosing a pair of high-performance Pedestal socks because unlike other cheap “lifting socks” on the market, Pedestals come with non-slip gripping action that allows you to get the most out of your next deadlift or powerlifting session. Check it out:
