Single leg Romanian deadlift

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  • Begin balanced on one leg with the knee slightly bent (15-20 degrees).

 

How to Do:

  1. Draw your abdomen inward toward your belly button for spinal stabilization.
  2. Without allowing further knee movement, bend over at the hip, trying to touch down with the opposite hand.
  3. Progress to extrinsic loading by holding a dumbbell in your hand.
  4. Do not flex/extend spine if extrinsic loads are used. 
  5. NOTE:  Flexion/extension of the spine, and extrinsic loading are both relative to the biomotor ability, as well as the GOAL.
