Single-Leg Dumbbell Straight-Leg Deadlift for Men

Single-Leg Dumbbell Straight-Leg Deadlift

  1. Grab a pair of dumbbells with an overhand grip, and hold them at arm's length in front of your thighs. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Raise your right leg slightly off the floor behind you. Your right leg should stay in line with your body for the duration of the move.
  2. Without changing the bend in your knees, bend at your hips, and lower your torso until it's almost parallel to the floor. Pause, then raise your torso back the the starting position. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with the same leg, then do the same number on your other leg.
