One of My Favorite Movements: Deadlifts!
It’s Week 4 of the must-have movements in any good glute program!
This week is my favorite movement, EVER! I have always loved deadlifts. Pretty much all variations make me happy! You can guarantee that you will do this exercise weekly here at the Booty Lab.
1: Conventional Deadlift
Pro tip: notice I hinge at the hips, once the bar reaches below my knee I lower my body to the ground while maintaining a neutral spine.
2: Romanian Deadlift
Pro tip: This is the first progression of a conventional deadlift. I hinge at the hips until I reach just below the knee and reverse back to the top position.
3: Stiff Leg Deadlift
Pro tip: This exercise I hinge from the hips and maintain a relatively straight leg (not locked) but soft knee as the bar travels towards the floor. Depending on your hamstring mobility will determine if you can touch the floor.
3 Deadlift variations for every glute program
How to Do a Conventional Deadlift
Hold the barbell with your arms straight and knees slightly bent. Slowly bend at your hip joint and lower the bar as far as possible while keeping it close to your legs. Make sure you keep your back straight. Squeeze your glutes to pull yourself back up. Remember don’t use your back or your spine!
