How to Do Conventional Deadlift With Barbell

The conventional deadlift with barbell should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the conventional deadlift with barbell.

Beginning

Beginning Barbell Deadlift

1. Grab the bar with your hands just outside your legs while standing with your feet shoulder-width apart.

2. Lift the bar by propelling your hips forward while keeping your back flat. Lower the bar slowly and steadily, however it's fine to drop it on your final rep once you've progressed to fairly high weights.

3. Place your thumbs against the outside of your thigh and move both hands down the length of your leg until they reach the bar.

Movement

Barbell Deadlift Movement

1. Throughout the lift, keep your head in a neutral position. Looking forward with your eyes fixated on a location on the ground two to three meters ahead of your feet does this. Also, remember to maintain your chin up to keep your head in the ideal lifting posture.

2. To avoid your torso hunching forward over the bar, keep your chest high throughout.

3. To maintain an arched lower back and a strong and stable body, keep your abs braced throughout the move, especially when attempting heavier lifts. As you squat down to grip the bar, engage your core from the start to keep your abs tense.

4. Breathe deeply into your belly, hold your breath, and brace your abs like you're about to be punched in the stomach as you prepare to lift the bar.

5. To maintain a strong and solid torso, keep your shoulders slightly in front of your hands until the bar reaches mid-thigh level, at which point you should retract your shoulder blades.
