Deadlift – Band

Deadlift – Band

  • HOW: Start in a standing position with a band anchored under your feet and around the top of your upper back. Hold onto the band in each hand - try to position the band similarly to how you would position a barbell in a back squat. To begin the exercise, perform a hip hinge and push your butt back as far as you can that your anatomy will allow you to with good form. Lower down to what you feel comfortable with, then drive your feet through the ground to return to starting position and repeat.
 
  • FEEL: This should feel like a lower body workout, specifically your glutes, hamstrings, and entire posterior chain.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not excessively bend or arch your back, perform a good hip hinge with proper form. Perform the conventional deadlift movement with a hip hinge, not a squat
