1. Suitcase Deadlift
Using a neutral grip, hold a dumbbell in your right hand at arm's length next to your thigh (as if you're holding a suitcase). Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Keeping your chest up, push your hips back and lower your body until the dumbbell is at mid-shin level. Pause, and then return to the starting position. "Don't touch the dumbbell to the floor," says Gentilcore. But do keep it close to your side throughout the move.
