Straight Leg Dead Lifts

Primary Muscle Group: Legs

Instructions

Take ahold of a barbell as for deadlifts and come up to a standing position.  Now keep your legs nearly locked and bend forward from the waist, your back straight, until your torso is about parallel to the floor, the bar hanging at arm’s length below you.  Straighten up again, pull your shoulders back, and arch your spine to get the spinal erectors of the lower back to contract completely.
