Straight-leg Dead Lift

IMG_3946

Straight-leg dead lifts are a go-to for hamstrings! There are a lot of different exercises and modifications to a straight-leg dead lift but here you’ll see one of the most common versions – with a straight bar.

*Keep your torso straight the entire time – if you feel it start to arch, stop and raise yourself back up.

*Legs spaced at shoulder width

*The knees should be slightly bent

*Keep your head down to ensure a straight spine (try not to look at yourself in the mirror too much 😉 )
