Note: Learning how to hinge before using dumbbells in this exercise enhances safety. Proper form will prevent injury and help build powerful legs and hips.

How to Deadlift: Start with your feet a little bit wider than hip distance. Stand tall and roll your shoulders back. With a slight bend in the knees, hinge at the hips keeping a long spine. The key is to create length from the tailbone to the crown of your head.

Pro Tip: Proper form is the most important of all! Ensure that you have core control, and watch for your shoulders rounding. Remember to keep your chest lifted.

Once you become comfortable with this exercise, you’ll really notice the benefits. Enjoy greater strength, an improved posture and a killer set of legs!
