TIP 4: DEAD-LIFT
The deadlift might be the most complicated movement of them all — and it has major benefits.
Similar to the leg press, it addresses all of the major muscles of your lower body.
It’s particularly great for women because it puts more emphasis on the hamstrings and glutes as compared to other lower-body pushing moves.
HOW TO DO IT:
Start standing with feet rooted into the floor and feet hip-width apart. Bend at the waist and grab a barbell (or a pair of dumbbells). Using mainly your legs (and without locking your knees), lift the barbell or dumbbells up as you contract your glutes and hamstrings to stand up. Lower the weight back to the floor slowly and with control. Pause for two seconds at the bottom and then repeat.
