Dumbbell Deadlift


  • Use dumbbells for the workload range.
  • Start with the dumbbells on the ground parallel to each other outside shoulder width apart.
  • Stand between the two dumbbells.
  • Have feet shoulder width apart with either feet facing forward or pointed slightly outwards.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together to keep your back and shoulders tight throughout the movement.
  • Drop your hips outwards to bend down to the weight.
  • Grab both dumbbells with an overhand grip.


  • Press through the floor to pick up the weight.
  • While rising, force your hips forward until your body is in a straight standing position. Don’t over extend the back.
  • Return the weight back to the floor by dropping your hips outwards.
  • Repeat for necessary reps.


  • After completion, return the weight to the floor by dropping your hips outwards until the weight is on the ground and let go of the weight.
