Dead Lift Exercise

Essential Exercise

Muscles worked:  Hamstrings, gluteals, lower back

The Deadlift is an integral, yet often missing component of a strength building program.

The Deadlift has many benefits. The movement spans three joints with extension occurring at the hip, knee, and ankle joints, thus utilizing several large muscle groups.

The Deadlift itself has many variations. You can use barbells for lighter weights or use a limited range of motion if the situation calls for it.

As in all exercises, the Deadlift is not for everyone. If you have special needs such as lower lumbar injuries or any other joint injuries, it is important to get your doctor's advice before adding the dead lift to your regime.

How to perform the Dead Lift Exercise:

  1. Roll a barbell against your shins.
  2. Squat down with your feet flat on the floor and legs shoulder-width apart, and grab the bar with an overhand grip just outside your legs. Keep your head up and back straight.
  3. Stand with the bar, and then slowly lower it, keeping it in contact with your body all the way down.
