The Deadlift is by far one of the best exercises to include in any workout, for any goal. Whether it’s fat-burning, muscle building, or strength training, you need to deadlift! If you’ve never done it before, don’t worry. We’ll show you how to do a deadlift for beginners.
You can deadlift with whatever type of weights you prefer, be that Barbell, Dumbbell or Kettlebell. If you stick to the form points we show you in the video, you will be fine.
A normal deadlift for men is predominantly a leg exercise but works almost all your lower body musculature, which is why it is such a good exercise to add to your workouts. You will work your Hamstrings, Glutes, Lower back, Core and Abs, and Quads to a small degree.
To protect your lower back and maintain a strong neutral alignment, you should make sure you keep your belly button pulled back to engage your underlying core muscles and brace your abs while you perform the exercise.
Deadlift For Glutes, Back, Legs, and Core — [Step-by-Step Technique]
Step 1: Stand in a strong athletic stance, with your feet just past shoulder-width apart, your back in neutral alignment, and your core tight.
Step 2: Bending your knees and keeping your back straight, lower down to pick up the weight. Set your grip about shoulder-width apart.
Step 3: Roll the weight back into your shins and then lift the weight up, pressing through your heels and keeping your back straight. You should reach a good upright position at the top of the move.
Step 4: Breathe in as you lower the weight back down to the floor.
Step 5: Breathe out as you repeat step 3, raising the weight back to an upright position.
Step 6: Complete the prescribed number of reps, then slowly lower the weight back to the floor, maintaining a neutral spine throughout.
** Pro Tip: We recommend starting 3 sets of 15-20 reps.**
