Learn Correct Form and Technique for The Kettlebell Deadlift
Strengthen Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Groin and Glutes
INSTRUCTIONS: Your stance is slightly wider than hip-width. Toes point forward. From a standing position, grip the kettlebell in both hands with palms down (pronated grip). Slowly bend your hips and knees as you lower the weight to the floor. Maintain a straight line from the crown of your head to your low back.
EXERCISE DON’TS: Avoid rounding forward, bending your neck and looking up at the ceiling, or down at the floor. Keep shoulders neutral.
MODIFICATONS: Kettlebells start at 5 lbs. If this is more weight than you can handle, switch to a lighter weight dumbbell or sandbag. The lower you descend, the harder it is to get up. Go down halfway or less to modify the exercise.
EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
