OLYMPIC-BAR DEAD­LIFT

Health & Fitness - - Workout -

Hold­ing a bar­bell with both hands, palms fac­ing to­wards your body in front of your legs, plant both feet on the floor hip-width apart. Draw your shoul­der blades down and back to push your chest out slightly. This is your start­ing po­si­tion. In­hale. Bend­ing from the hips only, al­low the bar­bell to run along the length of your thighs. Once the bar reaches your knees (A), bend your knees and al­low the bar to run half­way down your shins and ex­hale (B). You should feel ten­sion in your ham­strings (back of your legs). Push through your heels and, us­ing your glutes and ham­strings, ex­tend your knees and hips to re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion. En­sure the bar­bell stays in con­tact with your legs. Do as many reps as you can in 20 sec­onds.
