Single Leg Deadlift
Stand on one leg with the other leg ready to go behind you and foot flexed. Hold your dumbbells in each hand in front of your body. Push your butt back, keep your shoulders pulled back and your standing leg straight while you look forward and allow your hands to come down toward your shins and ankles. As you do this the backs of your leg will get really tight and that will be your cue to come back up to stand. Your back leg should kick back behind you, keeping the foot flexed. As you come back up to stand, bring your back leg back underneath you, and you can touch with that foot if necessary.
When doing SLDL’s, make sure you keep your chest proud (shoulders pulled back) and your chin forward, no slumping with your upper body.
Single leg deadlifts increase your glute, hamstring and posterior chain strength. They also help increase your ankle, knee and hip stability and increase overall balance.
