This is a lift to build leg muscles.
This lift is preformed by standing with the bar lying across your shoulders, taking a step away from the rack, squatting to a 90 degree angle (by the knees), and the pushing the weight back up by standing up, and then taking a step back forward to rack the weight bar.
3. Dead Lift
This is a full body muscle builder.
THis lift is preformed while the weight bar is lying on the ground, you walk up to the bar, grab it with both hands and in a “squatting” position, then stand up straight, and then slowly lay the bar back on the ground.

Although lifting is fun for most people, we all need a little bit of motivation from day to day. Your fist task will be to sit down and think about where you want to be at the end of this class and then write down your goals. Make these goals reasonable.
