#2 Deadlift

The deadlift activates the muscles in the lower back, quads, glutes and the hamstrings. In addition, the exercise also tones the core and improves the grip strength.

Instructions:

Step 1: Stand straight in front of a barbell with your feet placed shoulder-width apart. Keeping a straight torso, bend forward using your hips and the knees; secure the barbell with a pronated grip or an alternating grip. The palms must be placed at a distance that is approximately equal to the distance between the shoulders.

Step 2: Gradually raise the barbell to hip-height while simultaneously straightening the body. 

Step 3: Hold for a moment and return to the starting position.

Repeat the exercise for the recommended number of times.

Important tips: People with a history of back problems must exercise caution while performing this exercise. Beginners are advised to lift heavy weights with the help of a spotter.
