Dumbbell Deadlift

The dumbbell deadlift is a dynamic multi-joint exercise that builds strength in the lower body as well as the back, shoulders, and core, making it a great total-body exercise. By using dumbbells you’re able to achieve a greater range of motion.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your head in line with the rest of your body and avoid overarching at the neck.
  • Be sure to keep the dumbbells close to the body throughout the movement.
