Barbell Deadlift – Leg & Back Exercise – Bodybuilding.com


Start by standing in
front of a loaded barbell. While holding the barbell as
straight as possible, bend your knees as you sit
back with your hips. Grasp the bar using a
medium overhand grip. This will be your
starting position. Now begin the lift by pushing
with your heels as you extend your hips and knees
as you breathe out. As you approach the standing
position, pull your shoulder blades together and drive
your hips through the bar. Then slowly return to the
starting position by bending your knees and hips and
leaning forward at the waist. Keep your back straight and
breathe in as you execute this portion of the movement. When the weights on the bar
touch the floor, you’re back in the starting position and ready
to perform another repetition.
