Speaker: This is a Deadlift and this is a great exercise for the buns and the hamstrings, but it's really important that you pay attention to good form. Sometimes I see people come over into a Deadlift and round their spine to come back up lots of pressure of the lower back. You need to keep a nice long spine and pull up through your hamstrings and glute and that's where the action is. So let's take our hands in front of us, hand weights of good like and you know slightly soften your knees feet are about hip with apart. You are going to bend over from those hips coming down for four counts and only come as far as you comfortably can while keeping a nice long spine. Now squeeze those buns and pull up through the back of your legs hamstrings and your butts for two counts. Lets try to count here come down for four, one, two, three, four squeeze one, two, good, one, two, three, resist on the lowering here, come back up one, two, one more time here we go, one, two, I am really focusing on a nice long spine abdominal tight pull up through your buns, excellent. So the action is here and not in that back and you will be successful.
