Dumbbell Conventional Deadlift

Execution Steps:

  1. Setup: Stand with feet hip-width apart, dumbbells in front of you.
  2. Grip: Bend at hips and knees to grab dumbbells, palms facing your body.
  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 dumbbells 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.
