This exercise is similar to a regular Deadlift but differs because you keep your legs straight and you bring the bar all the way to the ground at each rep.

Muscle group: Back


Place a barbell in front of your feet on the ground.

Grasp the barbell with a grip a bit wider than shoulder width apart.

Bend your knees slightly, keeping your hips and back straight.

Lift the bar straight up concentrating on using your hips as you stand.

When you are standing the bar should be resting against your thighs.

Lower the bar to the floor with a slight bend in your knees flexing your hips back for stability.


Use light weight to get used to this exercise.

Keep your arms straight throughout the exercise.
