Dumbbell Straight Leg Deadlift

from Allen Elliott

Stand with shoulder width or narrower stance. Grasp dumbbells to sides. With knees straight, lower dumbbells to top or sides of feet by bending hips. Bend waist as dumbbell approaches feet. Lift dumbbells by extending hips and waist until standing upright. Pull shoulders back slightly if rounded. Repeat for specified amount of reps.
Helpful tips and Tricks
Do not pause or bounce at bottom of lift. Lower back may bend slightly during full hip flexion phase. Keep head up and chest and back in alignment.
