Straight Leg Dead Lift
Step 1: Hinge at the hips to get into starting position. The back and chest are parallel to the ground with head up and legs straight/relaxed.
Step 2: Push glutes forward and slowly straighten hips. Lead the movement upwards with the shoulders. Finish ascent standing tall. Hold for 1 count.
Step 3: Bring legs to a slight bend. Keep a slight arch in the back. Hinge at the hips and slowly descend until chest is parallel to the ground.
Tips: Core activation is key to avoiding excess stress being applied to the lower back. Focus on avoiding hyperextension. Feel for the upper hamstring as the main driver of the movement.
