Dumbbell Stiff Leg Deadlift

Starting position

  1. Stand upright, take dumbbells in your hands and keep them at your sides.
  2. Slightly bend your knees and place your feet about shoulder-width apart. 
  3. Ensure that your back is as straight as possible and your knees are stationary and bend at the waist, lowering the dumbbells just above the tops of your feet.
  4. Focus on stretching the tendons and continue to lower the dumbbells down as far as your body will allow without pain.


  1. Slowly begin to lift the dumbbells back up. 
  2. When lowering the dumbbells make sure your eyes are up and your shoulders are back and your lower back is not rounding your lower back.
  3. Push up through your glutes and hamstrings until you are in an upright position.
  4. Repeat the exercise a set number of times.
