Dumbbell Deadlift

How To Do A Dumbbell Deadlift Correctly

The dumbbell deadlift is a great variation of the classic barbell deadlift, if you don’t have access to a barbell.

The dumbbell deadlift hits your glutes, hamstrings, and core.

To get started:

  1. Stand with a shoulder width stance with a pair of heavy dumbbells on the floor.
  2. To pick up the dumbbells, start by bending at your hips, followed by bending your knees.
  3. Grab the dumbbells with an overhand grip, arms straight, and focus on keeping the natural arch in your lower back throughout the movement.
  4. Press your feet through the ground to stand up, pull your torso back, and thrust your hips forward to really contract your glutes.
  5. Lower the dumbbells to the ground and repeat.
