Single Leg Deadlift

Single leg deadlift: Stand on one leg, keeping hips even. Slightly bend the standing knee. With a neutral spine and lower abdominals slightly drawn in, bend at the hips so your trunk comes forward and down to horizontal. Make sure both your hip bones stay even and facing forward, and do not let hips rotate up or out. The motion should come from a hinge at the hips, and the floating leg should come up behind you. This will look like a ‘tipping bird’ motion. Return to the starting position by using glutes. You may hold a weight in your non-standing hand to increase the difficulty of this exercise. Repeat 10X on each side.
