How To Perform Exercise

The smith machine deadlift exercise is the same as the deadlift exercise but uses a smith machine to allow for better control of the weight and smoother motion.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing with your feet shoulder-width apart so that your feet are placed underneath the bar, making sure that you keep your back straight and bending down at your waist.

2.) Grab onto bar with an overhand grip with a shoulder-width grip and slowly elevate your body through your legs so that you straighten out your back and hold the bar at arms length.

3.) Hold the position for a count then return back to the starting position.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Make sure that you lift through your legs and do not lift with your back as you can sustain a major back injury.

2.) Perform this exercise with a weight that you are able to manage so that you don't pull your back out or injury yourself.
