Hamstring, Calves, Glutes

Description

Balance on your working leg, with the knee slightly bent and a tall spine. The other knee raised to hip height. Begin by hinging at the hips. Place the edge of your hand into the crease of your hip to give yourself feedback, and continue hinging, pushing the hip back. The main goal is developing stability, so limit the movement to a range you can control, and increase the depth overtime as you improve, working towards the full single leg deadlift. Keep the working leg slightly bent, & tension on the glute and hamstring. Maintain a neutral spine, & don't increase the range of motion by rounding your spine. Keep the hips and shoulders square throughout the movement. (avoid rotation) Pause and repeat for repetitions.
