Hi, I'm Michael Carson, to discuss with you the dumbbell deadlift with bent legs. Now, when you have your legs bent when doing the dumbbell deadlift, you're going to be working a little bit more of your quadriceps before activating the back. So,it's a good benefit to get the lags and the back in one exercise. So, when you do it, you can use a heavyweight and you can use lightweight. But if you're going heavy, you're doing less reps, if you're going light, you want to do more reps to get the most benefit out of it. Now, the most important thing when you're doing a bent like deadlift, is that you're putting the pressure through your feet properly. You want to make sure that your heels are very firm to the ground and you're not gripping with your toes. If you lift or grip with your toes, you're taking the exercise and putting it more into your shins and into your knees. You don't want that, this about your quadriceps, this is about your back, this is about core strength. Any football player, any activity that you do that gives you strength, like basketball, baseball, wrestling. Any sports that you do, will be enhanced with these bent leg deadlifts for your legs and your back.
