How to do the DeadLift
To begin the Deadlift stand with your feet shoulder width apart and while keeping your back straight bend at your knees to pick up the barbell (with an alternate hand grip).
Now, raise the weight using your legs and back until you are completely erect keeping the weight as close as you can to your body. Keep your head up. The movement is completed when you roll your shoulders back and stick your chest out.
Stand behind the participant and spot them underneath their lats performing a squat with them.
