The Battle Ring Assisted Single Leg Hinge is a great assistance drill for anyone wanting to learn a strong single leg deadlift movement pattern.  The rings allow for some assistance but their unstable nature also requires proper muscular activation.

Exercise Steps

Step 1: Grasp the two rings standing tall approximately 1 foot back from where it is mounted

Step 2: Stand with your feet narrow as you lift one knee to chest and actively push down into the rings.

Step 3: Extend back and down through the lifted foot heel as you sit back into a hinge position with a slight bend in your planted foot knee.  Continue to press down and forward into the rings for balance.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2-4.

Tips & Safety: This drill is all about maintaining alignment and rooting back into the hinge.  Avoid allowing the hips or shoulders to rotate through the movement.
