Let’s Start 2016 off with Barbell Deadlifts!
Trainer Heeson is walking you through step-by-step, how to do Barbell Deadlifts in this month’s featured move; it’s a great way to train many major muscle groups simultaneously!
Safely Performing Barbell Deadlifts
Start with your feet shoulder width apart. You want to create tension through your hamstrings and glutes while engaging your core. Pull the slack out of the bar by flexing your lats down toward your hips. Don’t try to pull your shoulder blades together at any point during Barbell Deadlifts.
Fill your belly with air by inhaling deeply into the stomach, not the chest. Pull your rib cage down and brace hard. Grab the bar as hard as you can, get yourself tight, and pull hard at the same time. Finish the movement by throwing your upper back backwards. Flex your glutes and abs as you stand tall.
Remember, if you ever have any questions, our trainers would love to answer them. We’re here to help you achieve your goals for 2016 and beyond, so don’t be afraid to ask.
