The Dumbbell Deadlift is a compound exercise that targets the posterior chain, helping to build strength and muscle mass in the back, glutes, hamstrings, and core through a hip hinge movement.

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Dumbbell Deadlift

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand with an overhand grip and arms fully extended at your sides.
  2. Engage your core and keep your back straight as you hinge at the hips, lowering the dumbbells towards the floor while maintaining a slight bend in your knees.
  3. Lower the dumbbells until your torso is nearly parallel to the floor or you feel a stretch in your hamstrings.
  4. Drive through your heels to return to the starting position, extending your hips and standing up straight.
  5. Keep the dumbbells close to your body throughout the movement.
  6. Inhale as you lower the weights and exhale as you lift back up.
