The single leg deadlift is often involved in gym and strength and conditioning settings as a means to strengthen the posterior muscles of the leg.
Muscles involved in this movement predominantly include the hamstrings, glutes, and trunk musculature.
In order to complete this movement, a higher degree of balance, movement control, and proprioception are also necessary. As a result, this movement can be used as part of a movement screen.
Begin by balancing on one leg, maintaining a stiff trunk, reach toward the ground with the opposite hand by hinging through the standing hip.
Can you complete 10 repetitions in a row without losing balance?
