The Domanian Deadlift is a simple and great workout to do. It not only targets your hamstrings and glutes, but it also works those calves and even your lower back, too. I personally enjoy an exercise that works multiple muscle groups and not just the one muscle. Think of it as killing two birds with one stone! All you need is a set of dumbells or a barbell. If you do not own a pair of dumbells, two milk jugs filled with water work just fine :)
- Grasp barbell from rack or deadlift from floor with shoulder width to wide overhand grip. Stand with shoulder width or narrower stance.
- Lower bar to top of feet by bending hips. Bend knees during descent and keep waist straight so back is parallel to floor at lowest position. Lift bar by extending at hips and knees until standing upright. Pull shoulders back slightly if rounded. Repeat.
