Dead lifts aren’t just for big bodybuildersTrue or false? Dead lifts are only for buff bodybuilders. False! Most people can perform a variety of dead lifts. If you’re a beginner, you can try the one-legged dead lift with a cone touch. Once you feel confident and balanced, you can eliminate the cone and hold weights as you extend your hand toward the floor. The version without weights will help to improve your balance, strengthen your ankles and work your glutes, hamstring and core.
