What up, fam? It’s Day TWENTY NINE of the one exercise a day challenge and today’s exercise is the: DEADLIFT. This move is not only great for strengthening your hamstrings, it also helps to work nearly all the muscles in your back. Watch today’s training video to find out how to do the deadlift, then complete your workout as recommended below!
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
Complete 3 to 5 rounds of this exercise, with 20 repetitions in each set. If having your arms alongside your torso feels a bit too challenging, you can place your hands on your hips instead. The more you bend your knees on this move, the less pressure on your back, so feel free to bend your knees like you would in a squat. The hinge is what makes the move a deadlift.
MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING
To make this exercise a bit more intense, extend your arms straight up overhead. As you hinge, make sure that your back stays nice and long.
