Deadlifts are a great way to build the strength in your hamstrings and glutes. Because it’s a full body movement, you also activate your core and work your lower back in the process.
Begin with a bar on the floor, reach down to pick it up. As you do so, concentrate on pushing your bottom out as you would when performing a squat. Lift the bar so your arms are extended, making sure you do not round your back, or let your knees fall in, then return it to the floor.
Make sure to choose a comfortable weight. In this instance we lifted the bar only as it weighed in at 8kgs. As you get stronger you can add a little more weight to your workout.
