The dumbbell deadlift is a movement that targets the hamstrings, glutes, and back muscles. While it can be performed all the way from the ground, in the style of a barbell deadlift, it is more often performed from the top down as a Romanian deadlift. The dumbbell deadlift can be performed in low rep ranges to build posterior strength, or for moderate to high reps to build muscle and endurance.
