DEADLIFT WITH STRAIGHT LEGS

Preparation

Schlitten so fixieren, dass sich die Griffstange leicht unterhalb den Knien befindet.

Starting Position

Take a wide stance just behind the bar. Grasp the bar with a shoulder-width overhand grip and pull it upwards. The torso is elongated and the lower back is slightly arched. Look straight ahead. Keep a slight bend at the knee joint.

Execution

Bend forward with your torso elongated over the hip joint until it is parallel to the floor. With your arms fully extended, lower the bar close to your legs. Push your buttocks backwards. Your head is in line with the spine. Then slowly return to the starting position.

Hint

Exercise can also be performed with a wide grip (more intense).
