Tip of the Week: Mastering the Barbell Deadlift with Chloe!

A woman deadlifting

Chloe Flanders is a personal trainer with a BA in Exercise Science and a minor in Nutrition! Today she is going to walk you through how to set up and execute a barbell deadlift. It is a great exercise for improving lower back strength and developing glutes and hamstrings.

Here are Chloe’s tips for maximizing your gains and minimizing injuries when performing this awesome exercise:

  1. Start with your feet hip-width apart and grip the barbell just outside your legs.

  2. Keep your back straight and chest up, driving through your heels to lift the weight.

  3. Ensure your hips and shoulders rise at the same rate to maintain proper form and prevent injury.

  4. Keep the barbell close to your body throughout the lift to maximize efficiency and power.

  5. Engage your core and maintain a neutral spine throughout the movement.

Whether you're looking to increase strength, improve posture, or build muscle, deadlifts can be a hugely beneficial exercise. Check out the video to see Chloes demo:
