Today's Fitness Friday features the the Staggered Dumbbell Deadlift.
About the Staggered Dumbbell Deadlift
The Staggered Dumbbell Deadlift engages all major muscle groups, specifically the back, upper and lower body.
This effective exercise loads the hamstrings & glutes more unilaterally.
- Hold one dumbbell in each hand and begin by standing straight with one foot slightly more forward.
- Drive both hips backwards while the back-leg bends.
- Allow your arms to slide down approximately one inch away from your thighs.
- Once you feel tension in the hamstring (above knee level), squeeze your butt and drive your hips forward to return to a standing position.
