Knee Kinetics - Exercise 1

Deadlift

Select weight that is comfortable for completing 10 reps.  Start with around 25% of your body weight and increase progressively to 50%.

Stand in front of loaded barbell, feet flat beneath the bar. Squat down (keep back straight) and grab the bar shoulder width or slightly wider (over hand or mixed grip). Lift the bar from the floor by extending the hips and knees fully, powering up using the legs and moving the torso to an upright position.  Focus on hip hinge.
