If you're still intimidated by a barbell, or you just want to mix things up, sumo kettlebell deadlifts are pretty awesome.

1) Position your stance a bit wider than shoulder-width apart. Place the kettlebell between your feet.
2) Lower your body down until your hands can reach the kettlebell's handle. Use an overhand grip.
3) Pull the kettlebell from the ground by extending your hips and knees. Stand upright with chest high. Then lower the kettlebell back to the starting position.
If you have any additional tips for this exercise, please let me know in the comments below and I will add them to this card. :)

I love kettlebell exercises and I feel like this also helps you strengthen your core more than barbell deadlifts!
@annamolly ah no don't be scared! But I understand where you're coming from. Does your gym have a free 1-pass for personal training?
@alywoah I think they allow occasional guests during office hours, but their office hours are during my work hours.
@annamolly argh that sucks. I know that could be super helpful. I learned so much just being with a trainer for one hour.
