-Dead Lifts: You'll need a set of 8- to 10-pound dumbbells for this exercise. Stand with your feet hip width apart, your knees slightly bend, holding weights in front of your thighs. Contract your abs and lean forward slightly at the waist, lowering the weights toward your shins, shifting your hips over your heels. Come back up and repeat 15 to 20 times. Be sure to keep your head and spine in a straight line. Dead Lifts work your hamstrings and glutes. For a bigger challenge, try doing this move while balancing on one leg. Switch legs after 8 to 10 reps.
