Dumbbell Deadlifts

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start in the bent over position with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms grasping two dumbbells in front of your legs.

2) Keeping your legs straight, pull the dumbbells upward along your legs until you are completely upright.

3) Arch the small of your back slightly at the top of the movement.

4) Lower the dumbbells back toward the start position with your legs still in the straight position.

Notes: Remember to keep your legs as straight as possible for this exercise in order to isolate the hamstrings more.  This is an easy exercise to overdo it on.  Try doing light weights and a slower motion, as always, until you get the hang of the exercise.  This exercise is also tough on your lower back, so remember to stretch it out before and after if you have any lower back issues.
