Deadlift Overview

The deadlift is a foundational compound movement that targets the entire posterior chain, enhancing strength, power, and overall muscular development by lifting a weighted barbell from the ground to hip level.

Barbell, Weight Plates

How To Perform the Deadlift

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, toes under the barbell, and shins close to the bar.
  2. Hinge at the hips and bend your knees to grip the barbell with hands just outside your knees.
  3. Keep your back straight, chest up, and shoulders back. Engage your core.
  4. Inhale, then drive through your heels to lift the barbell, keeping it close to your body.
  5. Extend your hips and knees simultaneously until you stand upright with the barbell at hip level.
  6. Exhale at the top, then reverse the movement by hinging at the hips and bending your knees, lowering the barbell back to the ground in a controlled manner.
