Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift

Step 1

• Begin by standing on one leg with your knee slightly bent and your foot pointing straight ahead. Hold a kettlebell in one hand and let it hang at arm's length. This is your starting position. • Hinge forward at the hips while keeping your back straight and your free leg straight and lifted behind you. • Lower the kettlebell towards the ground while keeping it close to your body. • Keep your core tight and your shoulders pulled back throughout the movement. • Return to the starting position by driving through your standing heel and engaging your glutes. • Keep your spine in a neutral position throughout the movement. • Keep your lifted leg in line with your torso and avoid letting it move outward or inward. • Focus on keeping your balance on your standing foot. • You should feel a stretch in your hamstring and glutes of your standing leg.
