Need To Strengthen Your Legs? Try A Single Leg Dead-lift


Carissa is demonstrating a single leg dead-lift (Single leg RDL) without weight. This exercise is great for the legs and for challenging your balance.

*Carissa is a dancer, so if you are not, you can still do the same exercise with the balance without lifting your leg as high off the ground.

**PROGRESSION: Try Single Leg RDL’s with dumbbells or bar

Start with feet hip distance apart, shift your weight to one side and lift leg, both hip bones should be facing the ground, bend forward keeping leg lifted, use your abdominals to support torso, reach opposite arm from supporting leg towards the floor, bring torso back up, repeat 5 to 10 reps on each side.
