Deadlift To Lose Weight

Deadlifts may be a firm favourite for targeting hamstrings and toning your glutes, but they’re also good for weight loss.

It is pretty simple, grab a kettlebell or two or a weighted bar to get started. Follow these instructions:

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a kettlebell with both your hands (if the kettlebell is heavy) or one each hand (if the kettlebells are lighter) with your arms straight down and slightly bend your knees.
  2. Without rounding your back, lower the weight/s by slowly bending your hip joints. Make sure you don’t bend at the waist. The weight/s should be lowered between your legs. When bending, look forward and not at the ground.
  3. Pull yourself up by squeezing your glutes and again, make sure you don’t round your back.
  4. If you’re beginner, do three sets of 12 reps and if you’ve been in the game for far too long, do three sets of 20 reps.
