Core Knowledge


Deadlift - Barbell

Starting Position

  • Stand in front of a loaded barbell and bend at the hips and knees to grab the bar just outside your knees.


  • Keeping your back flat, squeeze your glutes and stand up, pulling the bar up along your thighs.
  • Reverse the motion to lower the bar back down to the floor.
  • Repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions.

Coaching Keys

  • Do not let your back round. Keep the bar close to your legs and keep your shoulder blades back and down throughout the movement.

You Should Feel It

  • Working your glutes, hamstrings, and back.
