Single-Leg Dumbbell Deadlift for Women
Single-Leg Dumbbell Deadlift
- Grab a pair of light dumbbells and stand on your left foot. (If dumbbells make this too hard, just use your bodyweight as shown.) Lift your right foot behind you and bend your knee so your right lower leg is parallel to the floor.
- Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower your body as far as you can, or until your right lower leg almost touches the floor. Pause, then push your body back to the starting position. If this exercise is too difficult, perform the move as directed, but instead of raising the foot of your non-working leg, let the toes of your shoe rest on the floor for balance.
