The Deadlift is an awesome total body exercise. It strengthens your upper back, grip and lower back and legs all at the same time. Regular practice of the Deadlift will reinforce the proper way to lift things and build strength necessary to lift everyday objects, like groceries and suitcases. When performing the Deadlift it is important for you to maintain perfect posture and keep the bar close to your body.
- Place the barbell at mid-shin level (either with loaded with plates or on racks).
- Grab the bar with your hands at hip-width, and set up with your back straight and your chest out.
- Keeping your chest up and your back straight at all time, carefully lift the bar off the ground to a standing position.
- Slowly return to the start position.
- Rounding the back
- Not bending the knee
