To perform a Stiff Legged Deadlift, step up close to the bar in a stance closer than shoulder width. Grab the bar with an overhand grip, about shoulder-width apart. Pull the bar up by engaging your hamstrings, then hinge at the hips to lower it towards the ground. Lower it only as far as it takes to feel a stretch in your hamstrings. This is different for everyone, so listen to your muscles. Contrary to what you might’ve heard or seen, do not extend all the way up or thrust your hips forward at the top of the movement.

#BPITeamAesthetics athlete, Tyrone Bell shows you how.

The Stiff Legged Deadlift is part of your Monday Quads/Hamstrings/Abs workout. Perform 4 sets of 15 reps, or 1 rep short of failure.
