Summary

The Single Leg Deadlift is a powerful exercise which singles out one leg in the deadlift process. It requires balance and focuses work on the hamstrings and glutes and lower back. This is a great core exercise and will help not only strengthen the posterior chain but bring out the definition of the back of the legs.

Exercise Steps

Step 1: Place a kettlebell at your toes with your feet together

Step 2: Pick up the kettlebell using just one leg raising the other one behind you

Step 3: Maintaining a straight back, place the kettlebells back down and repeat

Tips & Safety: Drive your hips forward as you raise the kettlebell up. Maintain a tight core and feel the tension on the hamstrings and glutes. Squeeze the handle tightly. Look slightly up without raising your head.
