• Dead Lift

     One great workout in only 30 minutes.

    Grasp bar with an overhand grip slightly wider than hip-width and bring bar to rest just in front of shins [A].

    Maintaining a neutral spine, contract buttocks and hamstrings to straighten legs and return torso to upright position, bringing bar to thigh level [B].

    Reverse the movement and hinge forward, lowering bar to starting position, and repeat.

    Reps: 10-12
    Sets: 3-4
    Weight: 7-23kg
