Coaching Tips: Switch arms as desired on the dumbbells. Hold the dumbbell so that the heel of the hand is touching one of the ‘heads’. Then rotate the dumbbell so that it’s center of mass is closer to being over your spine. Do not push off the leg with the other hand. Make sure you keep your back flat on the dumbbell deadlifts. Angle them down so that you don’t have to go so low!
