Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift

Updated: Jul 4, 2018

Technique Tips :-

1.Always keep neutral spine position.

2.Your stance should be slightly wider than shoulder width and knees should always track over the toes.

3. Start with the kettlebell in between your feet. Keeping a neutral spine, send the hips back, placing weight on the heels and grasp the kettlebell with two hands.

4. Try to keep your shins vertical throughout the movement.

5.Keeping eyes forward, shoulders down, arms straight and let the legs do the lifting.

6.Body should reach full extension at the top.

7.Inhale into the belly before initiating the lift, hold your breath throughout the movement, exhaling at the top of the deadlift and taking another breath into the belly before initiating the next deadlift.

What to avoid:-

1.Loosing neutrality in the spine and following the kettlebell with your eyes.

2.Leaning forward, with weight on the toes.

3.Over extending at the top of the deadlift.

4.Not lifting in one fluid motion (straightening at knees, followed by opening the hips, or visa versa).

Primary muscles worked :-


2.Gluteus Maximus

3.The Hamstrings
