Monica Brant. Deadlift. Thong

1998 Fitness Olympia champion and now figure icon Monica Brant shown below in a retro video deadlifting 135lbs.

Is a thong practical workout gear? I think not, but with a booty like Monica’s you can get away with it…

Stiff Legged Deadlifts

One of the best exercises for the hamstrings. Also can be the one of the best exercises to watch ladies do at the gym:

– Stand with a shoulder width or narrower stance. Grasp dumbbells to each side.
– With knees straight, lower dumbbells or barbell by bending hips until hamstrings are tight, or just before lower back bends.
– Lift the dumbbells by extending hips until straight.
– Pull shoulders back slightly at top of lift if rounded.
– Repeat for as many reps as you plan.
