How to Do Dumbbell Deadlift

The dumbbell deadlift should begin with a 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 dumbbell deadlift.

Beginning

1. Stand tall, retract scapula and draw in navel towards spine whilst squeezing glutes.

Movement
