Barbell Conventional Deadlift

Execution Steps:

  1. Setup: Walk up to the bar, feet hip-width apart.
  2. Grip: Bend at hips and knees to grab the bar just outside your knees, palms facing you.
  3. Foot Engagement: Screw feet into the floor.
  4. Pre-lift: Shoulders back, back flat, core tight.
  5. Lift: Drive through your heels, extend hips and knees to stand up.
  6. Lowering: Hinge at hips, bend knees slightly, lower bar back to the starting position.


  • Breathing: Inhale as you lower, exhale as you lift.
  • Core Engagement: Keep core tight throughout.
  • Avoid: Rounding your back or overextending.
