This exercise is not for complete beginners. Some previous experience with regular (barbell) deadlifts is needed.

The key to executing this exercise well is to make sure your back is not hunched over too much and that your are pushing off (the floor) sufficiently with your feet and legs. Don't lift the weight with your (lower) back too much. The deadlift is an exercise that is all-inclusive in that it engages many muscles in both your upper and lower body.

Thus, do a few practice reps with some light dumbbells until you get the feel for the movement. Then try with heavier ones.
