DEADLIFT TO HIGH PULL
Challenge: Add 3-5 sets of this total body move to your workout today! Use a weight that challenges you.
Aim for 1 minute per set or 8-12 reps. (if the last few reps are easy, your weight isn’t heavy enough!)
Advanced? Try a single leg deadlift instead. :)
HOW TO DO IT
A. Hold dumbbells in front of your thighs, palms facing your legs, feet hip-width apart. Keep knees slightly bent.
B. Lean forward and lower your torso until it’s almost parallel to the floor. Keep your lower back flat (hinge at your hips) and chest open. Dumbbells stay close to your body.
C. Pause, squeeze your glutes and push your hips forward to return to standing, pulling the dumbbells to your chest. Keep your core tight and focus on using your glutes to do the lifting (and not your lower back).
D. Return to start. That’s one rep.
