Straight Leg Deadlifts

Straight Leg Deadlifts

Straight Leg Deadlifts - To work the hamstrings, glutes and lower back muscles.

1) Take hold of a barbell as for Deadlifts and come up to a standing position.

2) Keep your legs nearly locked and bend forward from the waist, your back straight, until your torso is about parallel to the floor, the bar hanging at arm's length below you.

3) Straighten up again, pull your shoulders back, and arch your spine to get the spinal erectors of the lower back to contract completely.

4) Without your legs to help you as in regular Deadlifts, you will use much less weight doing Straight Leg Deadlifts exercise.

5) If your use Olympic weights to perform this exercise, it is best to stand on a block or a bench so that you can lower the weight to the maximum extent without the large end plates touching the floor as long as your back doesn't begin to round.
