Kettlebell Deadlift

Body Part: Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Groin, Glutes

Equipment: Kettlebell

Difficulty: Beginner


Step 1: Stand in athletic posture with feet hip to shoulder width apart and toes pointing forward. Hinge at the hips and bend the knees to grab onto the kettlebell which is positioned between the midfeet. Brace the abs.

Step 2: With the back flat and chin tucked, push into the floor to lift the kettlebell until the body is full upright.

Step 3: Reverse the pattern, hinging at the hips to initiate, to return the bell to its starting position.

Step 4: Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Avoid rounding the spine, losing head position, letting the knees collapse inward or rounding the shoulders.
