Lifting Weights Series Part 3

Let's complete the series, with step 3 of the challenge. Executing this move will strengthen your back, glutes, hamstrings, lats, shoulders and core. Remember to take your time as you do this and push yourself to try it with your heavier set of weights (5- 8 lbs). This exercise is a great fat burner because you are using a lot of muscles at once to achieve a movement. Because we aren't using very heavy weights here for all of the muscles involved, we can afford to push the amount of reps we do so that we can feel the total body effects. 

Remember form is most important: 
Make sure your feet are directly under your hips, your feet stay still, and your back remains straight and never rounded, don't lean backwards as you lift stand straight up

Dead Lift:

Starting Position 1
Position 2

Start with you knees slightly bent. Fold over at your hips while letting the weights drop towards the floor. Maintain your posture and keep your back flat.

                                            Complete 15-20 reps, 2-3 sets
