Barbell Stiff Legged Deadlift

Barbell Stiff Legged Deadlift

Target: Hamstrings

Preparation:
Grasp barbell with a shoulder width or slightly wider overhand grip. Stand with a shoulder width or narrower stance and toes forward.

Execution:
With knees slightly bent, lower bar by bending hips until hamstrings are tight, or just before lower back bends. Do not round the lower back. Stick the butt out when lowering. Lift the bar by extending hips until upright. Pull shoulders slightly back at top of lift if rounded. Repeat.

Comments:
If you do not feel this movement in the hamstrings when the legs are straight try doing it with a slight bend in the knees. Throughout lift keep arms and back straight. Do not pause or bounce at bottom of lift. Do not lower weight beyond a mild stretch. Full range of motion will vary from person to person depending on flexibility. Don’t round the upper, middle, or lower back.
