Put your deadlifting prowess to the test with this old-time strongman variation.
How To Do It: The Move
- Approach the bar with your feet slightly wider than your hips. Squat down as low as possible, allowing your upper back to relax and round.
- Slip your elbows under the center of the barbell between your legs and squeeze the barbell in the crooks of your elbows.
- Take a breath before you begin to lift. Track the knees out over your ties and try to keep your back from shifting while under tension.
- Deadlift the bar t the fully upright position, keeping your core braced throughout the lift. Return it back to the floor in the exact reverse order.
