Dead lift

Step 1

Grip bar wider than hips with either hands over bar or power grip (1 hand under, 1 hand over grip)
Stand tall, feet slightly wider than hip width apart and toes turned out.
Brace abdominal and keep shoulders down and chest open and proud.

Step 2

Keep weight close to body. 
Bend forward from the hips first and then bend the knees accordingly.
Lower bar only as low and far down as you can maintain good posture.

Step 3

Push up through your heels and extend the hips. This is key so that the glutes or buttocks muscles are engaged. Stay focused, remain steady with movement and ensure that you execute good control.
