Single Arm Deadlift

 

Points of Performance:

  1. Focus on keeping the feet planted throughout the entire movement; there may be a tendency to shift the foot inwards or outwards as you move.

  2. Focus on keeping the shoulders and hips square as you lift up and lower the weight.

  3. Exhale on exertion, don't hold the breath. When you exhale, focus on lifting the pelvic floor.

  4. Hinge at the hip, pushing the booty backwards. Once movement back stops, stop going down with the weight. Once hip movement stops, the back will begin to round if you continue to move down with the weight.

  5. Goal is to feel it in the hamstring and glute, not get the weight to the ground.

  6. There may be a slight rotation of the torso as you lower the weight to the ground.
