Deadlifts. Oh my word. I think this is a dangerous exercise to do if you do not have the form correctly.
SO much can go wrong. Make sure you stick your bum out and keep your back straight. Shoulders back as well and then the big squeeze when you come up at the end on the glutes.

What does a typical AB workout look like for you?
Honestly, I do not train abs a lot because abs are not a feature in bikini that they want so much. They want more lines than blocks so weighted crunches, jack knives, planks, ab compressions, leg raises.
