How to perform deadlifts

The deadlift is an incredibly effective move for your lower body, especially your glutes, quads and hamstrings.

Not only that, it’s great for your core, too.

Doing deadlifts regularly is fantastic for your posture, so if you spend your day sitting at a desk, you should definitely incorporate them into your workouts.

Here’s how to perform a deadlift correctly:

Deadlift dos:

  • Start with a neutral stance – feet directly beneath your shoulders.
  • Engage your core.
  • Grab the barbell (or two dumbbells), keep your arms straight and knees slightly bent.
  • Hinge from the hips and lower the weights all the way down.
  • Keep the barbell close to your legs, almost touching them.
  • Squeeze your glutes to pull yourself up.

Deadlift don’ts:

  • Don’t round your shoulders forward. Draw your shoulders back and down.
  • Don’t round your back.
  • Don’t lock your knees out. Keep a soft knee position.
  • Don’t poke your chin out. It will strain your neck. Keep your head in a neutral position.
