Barbell Deadlift

Interested in making the barbell deadlift a part of your fitness routine? We

can help you with a step-by-step guide to technique, which will help you

add muscle and mitigate the risk of injury. With proper execution, it is the

best total-body strength exercise that effectively targets hamstrings, quads,

glutes, and core. It’s also great for weight loss and stability.

How to Perform a Barbell Deadlift

1. Start by standing behind a barbell with your legs hip-width apart

2. Drop your glutes down, slightly bend your knees, and lean with

your torso forward, maintaining a tight core and a flat back.

3. Then, grab the barbell, and place your hands shoulder-width apart;

your palms should be faced toward your body.

4. Push your feet into the floor and stand up tall, pulling the weight from

the ground and keeping your arms straight.

5. Bring your hips forward and squeeze your abs and glutes at the top. You

will then reverse the movement by bending the knees and pushing your

glutes back down to lower the weight back to the floor. Repeat.

6. Deadlifts should be performed with a neutral spine while maintaining the

core engaged. In addition, avoid rounding the back to prevent injury.

Two things to know that will change the way you think about


Learn to Enjoy the Process of Growth

Everything in life is a process and everything takes time in order to get to

where you want to be and become who you want to be. Learning a new

skill isn’t effortless and it isn’t something that you are born with. A new skill

is something that we learn to do, learn to love, and learn to live when we

have an optimistic mindset. The same approach should be taken with

workouts. Learn the technique, apply the technique, and see the results.

The feeling of becoming stronger and stronger will have you wanting more.

It shouldn’t feel like a household chore, but an opportunity to gain a skill.

Mental knowledge comes with constant repetition. When the body feels

right the mind is right.
