Barbell Deadlift

How To Do A Barbell Deadlift Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The barbell deadlift is another one of the big 3 bang for your buck exercises.

It’s a total body exercise that primarily targets your hamstrings and glutes, but also hits your back, shoulders, and core.

To get started:

  1. With a hip width stance, walk up to the bar so it touches your shins.
  2. Push your hips back, bend your knees, and grab the bar with an overhand grip, just outside your legs.
  3. While maintaining a flat back with your chest up, push your feet through the ground, lift the bar, and keep it close to your body throughout the movement.
  4. Straighten your legs and move your hips forward at the top of the lift to fully contract your glutes and hamstrings.
  5. Reverse the movement to lower the bar back to the floor and repeat.
