Stiff-Legged Deadlift

The barbell stiff-legged deadlift targets the hamstrings, glutes, lower and upper back, as well as the core. It is a popular accessory movement for the deadlift, but also a muscle-building hamstring movement.

Benefits

  1. Stretches and engages the hamstrings and lower back to a greater degree than a bent knee position
  2. Also works the calves, quads, and forearms indirectly
  3. The barbell variation allows for heavier loading than with dumbbells
  4. Can use straps if grip is a limitation
