Movements Weightlifting Deadlift

Overview & Demo

Reach down and pick up an object. The starting position is wherever the object is, and the finished position is a fully upright stance with arms extended at your sides, holding the object. Can be performed using anything (ie. atlas stone, medicine ball, dumbbells), but is most often performed in a Gym using a barbell with bumper plates. Safe/efficient technique requires use of the hamstrings, glutes, and a rigid back.
