How To Deadlift Properly
This is a very basic guide to deadlifting. Make sure you consult a professional trainer before trying this on your own at home.

1.Place the barbell on the ground with weights according to your strength and fitness level. It is important to remember to not overdo it with the weights if you are just starting off as you could easily injure yourself.

2. Position the bar 2″ to 4″ from your shins when standing.
With thighs parallel to the floor lower your hips making sure that the lower parts of your leg remain vertical. Stick your butt out.

3. Squat down and grasp the bar. Lift the bar up, keeping your shoulders pulled back.

4. Flatten your back and always look straight forward. If you look down you make your neck round and if you look up you can injure your neck.

5. Keep your back straight while lowering the bar in a controlled manner back to the starting position.
