Hanging deadlifts are performed without the bar touching the floor. Deadlifts strengthen the glutes, legs, back and torso. Hanging deadlifts are usually performed with less weight than regular deadlifts. Hanging deadlifts are excellent for overall body development and can give you a great conditioning workout if the rest periods are kept to a minimum.

How to Do Hanging Deadlifts

  • Start with the barbell held at the front of your thighs, hands placed hip-width apart
  • Keeping your chest up and your back straight at all times, slowly bend at the hips and the knees
  • Keep the barbell close to your thighs while lowering it to mid-shin level, then lift it back up to a standing position
  • Keep your chest up and your back straight at all times
  • Rounding the back
