Lower the weight slowly back down to starting position. Now go and repeat.
1. BARBELL DEADLIFT
Actually this is technically more than a back exercise, that will help you build most of yours muscles including your entire posterior chain that is from your calves to your upper traps.
Stand with your mid-foot under the bar. Don’t touch it with your shins yet. Your standing position should be width stance.
Now grab the bar narrow about shoulder width apart. You arms should be vertical from the front-view just outsifr the legs.
Next you will need to bend your knees and keep going towards the ground until your shins touch the bars.
Keeping the bar close to the body, exhale as you work to straighten the legs, Keep core engaged throughout the entire movement.
Once the bar is past the knees and the arms are straight, gently rest it against your thighs and maintain a straight back.
Finally pull the barbell up, take a big breath and slowly pull the barbell up to your standing position, don’t shrug or lean back at the top.
