Easy Deadlifts Exercise

Focus Area: whole body

1. Begin with your feet place flat, shoulder width apart. Bend you knees and lower your body down to pick up the straight bar or dumbbells off the floor. Grip the bar with an overhand grip, 1 ½ shoulder width apart or dumbbells with the weights to your sides. Make certain there is no curvature of the spine and position your back at a 45-degree angle with your butt down. Keep your head up.

2. Using your legs, forcefully lift the bar up to your upper thigh. Do not bend your arms. Stand erect and pause for two seconds and return the weight slowly to the floor and repeat. Make sure to use your legs and minimize the stain on your lower back.

3. Exhale on the way up: inhale as you return the bar to the floor. Repeat.
