Barbell Deadlift

Start: Stand behind the bar with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees bent. Using your overhand, shoulder-width grip, hold a barbell in both hands. Shins almost touching the barbell.

Move: Extend at the hips to raise the bar up to your hips. Make sure you keep your spine straight throughout the movement and your feet are flat on the floor. Do not allow knees to track forward over your toes.
Once you are standing upright with your arms fully extended, lean forward from your hips, pushing your hips back as you guide the bar down your legs until the bar reach the starting position on the floor.
